Mine didn't show up either, so I went and submitted again.

(And besides, you always know who's going to win Best Picture when we see who wins Best Editing...It's practically become a bonus-figurehead category by now.) ;)

??? - Oh, no wonder--Changed it a few months ago, and forgot to update.

I've updated the Forum e-mail to what's on the ballot, do I need to submit one more time?

I submitted my predictions on Sunday morning, but I wasn't on the list after the update on Monday. I tried to submit one again later on Monday (with what I think are the same predictions), but I'm still not showing up. Any idea why I'm not on the list yet?

Hey all - there appears to be a big problem with the Oscar form. I've been working on it all weekend and HOPE to have it fixed VERY SOON! Sorry about the problems!

I've spent the last three days and untold mental power trying to figure out why the form on the Oscar contest was not sending me the entries you guys were doing anymore. And after all that work I came back with nothing.

Then from the far recesses of my brain came the tiny voice of common sense telling me to do something I should have done at the very first - check my junk mail folder. And there were all the missing entries from the past week!

It is after midnight and I just discovered these entries 10 minutes ago. In the morning I will go through them all and post what I have in this thread!

Sorry about the mental lapse guys - and yes I feel preety stoopid!

Due to a lot of the entries going to my junk mail folder without my knowledge, I suggested that some of you might want to re-enter while I was investigating the problem. Now that I have found all the ballots I have multiples from some of you. Per the rules I am only going to count the first entry received. However, since this was my mistake I will let any of you who sent a duplicate entry email if you'd prefer I use your second entry. Please do so before the contest ends. Thanks!

Hey. Just wanted you all to know that I did enter. I must've typed the wrong address.

The final list of ballots submitted is now up. If you're listed as having an email address that doesn't match you are still entered in the contest. But if you win you'll need to confirm before getting any prize.
