Despite the rudeness of five readers deigning to score higher than me last year, we’re still gonna go ahead and do Oscar predictions again this year. Should be a much more interesting year for them, as I really don’t feel confident about many picks. Last year, Assistant Dragon Slayer defeated us all, with only two incorrect picks. He is the man to beat.
How it works
- Fill out your predictions. Make sure to name the entry with your Disqus name.
- We’re doing every category except for the shorts. Because we need some time to fast-forward and/or go get snacks.
- Correctly guessing Best Picture is worth three points, Best Director and the four acting categories are worth two points. All others are worth 1 point.
- In the case of a tie, the tiebreaker is getting the highest ranked category right. So if player A and B are tied, the person to correctly guess Best Picture wins. If both or neither do, we move to Best Director, then Best Actress, etc. (The ranking is the order in which they appear on the predictions page).
What do you win?
Why, the admiration of people on the internet, of course. Maybe we’ll even give you a shout out on the podcast.
