Oscar fever is here, and I once again forgot to get my shots. Symptoms may include night sweats, an inexplicable attraction to an aged Meryl Streep, and an uncontrollable urge to praise movies about the Holocaust. And the only known cure is to participate in an Oscar pool.

Here's how it works: you send me your picks for the winners in every category. Points will be awarded for correct picks based on the following criteria:

Top prize (Best Picture): 7 points
Major categories (Best Director, Actor, Actress, Original Screenplay, Adapted Screenplay): 4 points
Intermediate categories (Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress, Foreign Film, Animated Feature, Documentary Feature): 3 points
Minor categories: (Cinematography, Score, Original Song, Film Editing): 2 points
Random bullshit categories: (Everything else) 1 point

If you are anything like our prior winners Yaworm and Elisa, you can go ahead and send your picks now to Or, if you are like last year's loser, Kevin, you'll want to get some expert advice. No, not from Yaworm and Elisa. From me and Jim! We'll be spending the next few days breaking down each race, and making our picks for winners and losers? Think you can beat us. Well, you are probably right. But you can't win if you don't enter!


I spent the entire year studying up on sound mixing for this and it's only one point!

I won an Oscar pool? (Get it off, Get it off, Get it off, Get it off, Get it off, Get it off, Get it off, Get it off)*

*you shouldn't get this, and if you do, we should be best friends.
