Re: Oscar Contest 2017 - LAST WEEK TO ENTER!

Post by James » February 21st, 2017, 9:12 am

Just a heads up that this Friday is your LAST DAY TO ENTER! Only 25 entries in so far. That'd be an all-time low -- meaning your chances to win are that much better!

Just submitted my votes. I used the same tactics as last year relied on the results of the Guilds, no thinking allowed. Somehow though I expect my results to be worse than last year, especially since my tactics meant I had to choose Hidden Figures over La La Land.

I finally decided to toss in a ballot, as well.

Though, I've always done poorly in this contest (I once managed to place 'dead-last' for two years in a row) ..

so -- to paraphrase James -- everyone else's chances just got even better..! :P

And the deadline has passed. Looks like 82 entries this year! That includes 12 previous winners -- 3 of whom are two-time winners. Good luck to all!

82?!?!?!?

Wow, lots of late entries. Looks like I'm destined for sub-75th place again. Hanging out with James' wife.

I do so bad at this contest every year. I always end up in the bottom of the contest results. Oh well. I am kind of good at guessing the animated film winner but this year had some good ones so i'm not so sure who will win it this year.

With Moana and Zootopia both socially cult-loaded for voters, I can't even vote the Animated favorite this year with any degree of confidence--
That's it, I'm sitting out the contest (since I haven't seen L3, and can't arbitrarily hand out which ones it'll "sweep" at random for lack of better nominees), but might stop by the chat.

Wow. I did pretty badly this year, especially compared to last year! Last year I was in second.
