You can change it using the link at the top of the screen that says User Control Panel. But no rush. As long as you confirm you entered that's all I'm looking for.

I did better than I expected, but I under-estimated The Hurt Locker (only predicted in director and editing). I also got screwed by the screenplay categories and Wallace & Gromit not winning animated short, that was the biggest shocker of the evening.

And I got also 18 right, if I counted correctly :(.

So sorry Soraly. But until you activate your account you don't show up on our member list. (I just re-confirmed that by creating a dummy account, not clicking the followup email, and then checking the member list.)

If it makes you feel any better I checked your ballot. You did get 18 right so congrats on tying our winner! You then also tied using our first tie-breaker (most animated categories correct) where you both got Feature and VFX right but missed Short. In the second tie-breaker (most right between Live Action Short and Documentary Short) our winner got one right while you missed both.

So it would have been extremely close but you would have lost either way. Again, sorry you didn't get registered in time, but hopefully this makes you feel a bit better -- public recognition of how good you did and knowing you didn't lose solely due to not activating your account.

You lost anyway so don't feel bad, and now everyone knows how well you did. Congrats! :)

Do feel bad for Jafar though! Haha. :D
