CONTEST: The Predictions!

Once again, let me thank everyone who participated. It was a lot of fun to see all the predictions coming in and I hope it will be equally as fun for you as the nominations are announced tomorrow. Win or lose, I hope you enjoyed it and I'm already looking forward to next year's edition. Here is my predictions post in case you missed it earlier: 

Enough rambling, here's what you're interested to see:


N.B. -  A "1" indicates a prediction. 
If you can't remember which blog each name relates to, check out the previous post with the full entry list: 

Once the nominations have been announced, I'll get to work on calculating the scores. An official results announcement should be up before 6PM tomorrow night, so keep checking back here or on my twitter feed.

Here's a reminder of how the scoring will work:

- Each correct prediction will earn you 1 point. However, in the Best Picture category, every wrong prediction will lose you 1 point. With the current rules for this category (anywhere between 5-10 nominees), if everyone predicts a full 10 it would make it too easy to catch all the nominees in a small field, hence the penalty.
- If you guess every single nominee correctly (including the correct number of Best Picture nominees) you will get an extra $5 bonus to the prize.

Here's where I hope this turns into a full circuit to crown a true awards guru. In the event of a tie for 1st place, the winners will move on to the next round of predictions - the Golden Globes. Those who qualify must send their predictions (again by blog post) by 6PM US Eastern Time on January 12th, 2013. For your troubles, I'll up the prize amount to $30.

If we have another tie, we will keep it going all the way up to the Oscars and I will add $5 to the prize for every additional show.

Here's the sequence of awards that will be included: Golden Globes, SAG, BAFTA, Oscars.
