Purple Rock Podcast Oscar Predictions Pool

Alright, one last non-Survivor offseason piece of business to finish just as the season gets going. For the past few years, the PRP staff have had our own Oscar predictions competition (well, 4 out of 5 of us anyway). This year, thanks to the spreadsheet/Google docs wizardry of that fifth staffer, we’re opening the challenge up to all of y’all.

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.
