Well, I wasn't "sub-75th", just at a tie for 75th. So, technically, I still failed.

Take alphabetical names into it, Rand, and you'd then at least be placed third-75th, if that makes you feel any more triumphant! ;)

Oscar Contest 2018

Postby James » February 12th, 2018, 12:10 am

Animated Views is giving away $50 worth of movies — your choice of either an Amazon gift card or a Fandango gift card — during our 14th Annual Oscar Event! All you have to do is predict who is going to win at the 90th Annual Academy Awards (to be held on Sunday, March 4th, and televised on ABC). The person with the most correct picks will win!

Make your prediction in each category using this form. Don't forget to fill in your Animated Views forum username and password (check your profile if you have forgotten and to confirm that your email address is still correct). Not a forum member? Registration is free and easy so why not sign-up now!

The reason we require forum registration is because it's an easy way for us to confirm your email address and to weed out spambots — you never have to actually use the forum if you don't want to and, other than a message to confirm your address (and another if you win!), we do not send forum members emails.

All entries must be received by Friday, March 2nd, at 11:59pm ET. One entry per person please. If you send more than one entry, only the first one received will be counted.

And our Oscar Event will continue with live chat during the telecast! We'll talk about the people, the fashions, the story-lines, and the awards. We'll also be keeping track who is winning our contest in real time! Results will also be posted online as the awards are announced.

Re: Oscar Contest 2018 - ENTRIES DUE THIS FRIDAY!

Postby James » February 28th, 2018, 9:26 am

As I seem to say every year, entires are way down. Also like every year, I'm assuming most people are waiting until the last minute to enter hoping for an advantage. If so, now's the time!

Don't be like this guy! ENTER TODAY!

LOL. Brilliant marketing guys. Go to the trouble to have an Oscars contest but end it two days before the Oscars even take place.
Who is even looking for an Oscars contest two days before the event? That would be like ending Super Bowl betting two days before the game.


ONLY TWO DAYS LEFT TO PLAY!

Thanks for the reminder, it had totally slipped my mind. Hopefully can make time to cast votes and lose again.

Today is your last day to enter!

We're running at about 2/3s of last year's entries, though based on past experience I expect a rush of ballots turned in today.

I'm probably going to extend the deadline by three hours so it ends at midnight west coast time, rather east coast.
