Well, I totally get where she's coming from. Beating Tami is really the only motivation I have for even putting in a ballot anymore. I just don't follow films enough (or I'm just plain too clueless and un-intuitive) to stay competitive with the big guns.

I saw 6 of the 9 Best Picture nominees... and came in 60th out of 69! So it's probably less about following films or being intuitive and more a bit of luck and a bit of seeing which way the wind is blowing the week before the show!

It'd be interesting to go back and see how late previous winners turned in their ballots.

Just for fun, went back and looked at the last six years worth of winners. The earliest any of them turned their ballot in was six days before the contest. Lesson is to wait I guess! Freaks me out a bit though when no one has entered as the deadline approaches!

I am so bad at this contest. I end up at the bottom every year. This year was extra hard. So many big movies in best picture. Oh well it's the fun of guessing that counts.
