Jafar I didn't get your ballot but feel free to send it again. Since you're staff you're not eligible to win so it is just for fun and won't matter that you got it in late.

Check the rules again. Only the first 22 categories on the ballot count towards your final score. The last two are only used for the second tie-breaker. ;)

Congratulations! I had 19/24 correct. Amazingly, I actually got both animation and documentary categories correct! Missed out on Foreign film and supporting actress though (doh!).

Just submitted my predictions. Don't think I will win though, and it's not like most of the DVD titles are particularly appealing (I already have Up). I guess if I do win, I could give the other DVDs away as presents to friends and family (minus Cars, which I like but don't own).

Man, not to crap all over your parade, but the only DVD worth it there is Cars. Maybe bedtime stories. The rest... urgh

Actually, G-Force turned out to be some really good fun. :)

We can only give away what we have left over from a year of the studios sending us the occasional extra copy...which is why we've thrown in this year's eventual Best Animated Feature winner too. Now, come on, that's not a bad bunch to basically get for the price of a free entry. There are not only three or so good titles in there but, like Estefan said, the pack also includes some others that might make decent gifts for friends and family. It's all in fun anyway...so why not enter and see what happens? You might end up a Jonas fan! ;)
