Academy Award Contest 2000
Last Week, I told you who was going to win 7 of the Oscars on Sunday, March
26th. Many of you doubt my choices, because you are sad and lame. Well, I
scoff at thee! Scoff! Think you can do better? I'm gonna give you a chance
But naturally, I'm gonna make it complicated.
There are 23 Categories. There used to be 24, but they combined a couple to
shorten the show. (Yeah, that's gonna shorten it. They want a short show?
Two words - NO RIVERDANCE!) I have divided them up into three sections. The
first section includes what I consider the 8 AWARDS I REALLY CARE ABOUT.
Those are worth 6 points each. Then there are 10 MILDLY INTERESTING AWARDS,
worth 4 points each, and finally, the 5 little, AWARDS NOBODY REALLY CARES
ABOUT, worth 1 point each. That's 93 points. I will also award 5 points if
you correctly name the movie that wins the most awards. (In the case of a
tie, if you've named one of the movies, you get the points.) Lastly, I will
award 2 points if you praise me in your entry.
You have until end of day Saturday, March 25th
(the Oscars are on Sunday). To win, you must do better than me; my predictions
are marked with asterisks. Anyone who
manages to out-guess me will go into a pool from which a three random
winners will be selected and will get a free Brunching Shuttlecocks
T-Shirt. Or, if you already have a B.S. T-shirt, I'll send you a random
T-shirt that I picked up from one of the Internet Trade Shows. They kick
some serious ass! The person who scores the highest wins a T-shirt and
a DVD of an animated feature that's not from Disney but wants you to think
it is (Like "Aladdin and the Genie" or something). That means if I'm the
highest, I get to keep it. Hah.
Good luck my friends. Together, we shall overcome.
E-mail addresses will only be used to notify winners and will not be
shared or used for any other purpose. In case of ties for first place,
a winner will be chosen randomly. (But remember, you have to beat the
Critic to be eligible, not tie him.) If something goes awry, we reserve
the right to pick a winner by any method we choose. One entry per person:
extra entries will result in disqualification. Void, as they say,
