There was a small error in my points calculations. I forgot to allocate the points to those who predicted Skyfall for Sound Mixing. This didn't affect the outcome but Lindsay's win becomes even more impressive, with 81 points (as opposed to the 80 that was previously announced).

What a day! Those Oscar nominations were certainly very surprising. As I was going through the scores, I was convinced we were all doing equally terribly. I fully expected a tie or a very close end result. As it turns out we had a clear winner!

Lindsay Street of French Toast Sunday

She won with 81 points, 3 ahead of joint 2nd place finishers Amir and David. She sealed the win by incredibly picking the full Best Picture lineup (she was the only person to do so).

Interesting Stats:
- Nobody predicted Benh Zeitlin's Best Director nomination or the Best Original Song nominations for "Before My Time" and "Everybody Needs A Friend".
- Andrew & Sarah were the only predictors of Skyfall in Best Original Score.
- Ryan was the only predictor of Snow White and the Huntsman for Best Visual Effects.
- Alex was the only predictor of Flight for Best Original Screenplay.
- Tony was the only predictor of The Pirates! Band of Misfits for Best Animated Feature.

I want to say one final thank you to everyone who participated. It was a lot of fun and I'm already looking forward to an even bigger, better competition next year! :) 


  1. Ooh I did OK for someone who hasn't seen four of the big five contenders. I enjoyed the contest, look forward to next year.
