I was planning on doing some sort of Oscar preview post and then thought I should just do another mini-contest. The response for the Oscar nominations contest was very encouraging and I think it's only fitting that I should do something for the main event too. The rules for this one are simple. I've selected 6 of the most interesting categories of this Oscar season and your task is to correctly predict all of them. If you get any of them wrong, then you lose.
Unlike the Oscar nominations contest, this one is open to anyone(you must have a blog though), so enjoy! Your predictions are due on Saturday at 6PM US Eastern Time. Following the Oscars, I will announce who has won and that winner will receive a $25 Amazon online gift card. Good luck!

Here are your categories:

Best Director
Best Adapted Screenplay
Best Production Design
Best Makeup & Hairstyling
Best Original Score
Best Editing

Tiebreaker #1: The Shorts (Live Action, Animated, Documentary). Pick as many as you can.

If there is still a tie then...

Tiebreaker #2: Best Supporting Actor

If there is still a tie then I will choose a winner at random, sorry.


  1. Good idea. Does it mean that except those 6 categories we have to predict shorts and supporting actor in the same post? :)

    1. I didn't see that part! I must amend my email!!! I'll figure that stuff out and get back to you :-P

  2. Thanks for putting on the contest. I like the blog design by the way.

  3. Best Director : Ang Lee
    Best Adapted Screenplay : Argo
    Best Production Design : Les Mis
    Best Makeup & Hairstyling : Hobbit
    Best Original Score : Life of Pi
    Best Editing : Argo

    Tiebreaker #1: Open Heart, Paperman, Curfew
    Tiebreaker #2: De Niro

    Carl White
    4 0 4 2 2 9 5 2 1 6

  4. So, did anyone predict those 6 correctly?
