Aces Full of Links Oscar Pool

Next weekend the Academy will reward a few films with the highest award in the business. If you’d like to take a crack at who you think the Academy will choose, please take part in my “Aces Full of Links Oscar Pool.” (Poll is now closed)

Here are the categories I’ve chosen to include in the pool:

  • Best Picture
  • Best Actor
  • Best Actress
  • Best Supporting Actor
  • Best Supporting Actress
  • Best Director
  • Visual Effects
  • Best Animated Feature
  • Original Score
  • Best Original Screenplay
  • Best Adapted Screenplay

The winner will be offered a choice of one of the following exciting-as-hell prizes:

The winner will be the person who gets the most categories correct. In the event of a tie, the winner of the tie will be the person who got the most correct in the Best Picture/Best Actor/Best Actress categories. If there is still a tie, winner will be chosen by coin flip.

To be eligible, you must give your full name when you submit the form. Following the awards, I will post everyone’s results here (I will only use your first name and an initial) and I will ask the winner to contact me. Your full name will not appear on the weblog without your permission.

Here is the link to the pool again: “Aces Full of Links Oscar Poll” (Poll is now closed)

(Many thanks to defective yeti for providing the web page for our pool)

[Update - Added Additional Prizes to the List]
[Update - REMEMBER, you need to give your first and last name, and you need to check back after the Oscars. I’m using your last name to verify who the winner is, so unless I know you personally, I need that second name. The form doesn’t ask for your email address, this is how I’m identifying the winner. People I don’t know are more than welcome to enter the pool, but if you don’t supply your last name you will not win.]
