    Okay, here's how this works. Cut and paste the list. Leave only Your Selections in each category, repost.

    Winner is determined by a weighted score according the points I've assigned below. (I've randomly weighted some categories higher than you might expect, but this is not a democracy - if you want to play, you agree to the rules) and the guy who has the highest score AND the most number of correct choices the night of the Awards is the winner! (Tie determined by who posted first)
    e.g. - you have six correct choices worth a total of 22 points as weight below. That's 22 plus 6 for an overall score of 28.
    If somebody else has 28 points as well - with only five correct choices (but his includes something weighted higher than one or two of your correct choices) but he posted his response AFTER you did. YOU are still the winner!
    I will personally be responsible for sending a prize to the winner (provided they are willing to give me a location to send it - not required)
    Not endorsed by either the Academy of Admin of RJ...but really, where else ya' gonna' go to do this and have a surprise waiting at the end!

    BALLOTING CLOSES AT MIDNIGHT, SATURDAY FEBRUARY 26th. ALL ENTRIES AFTER THAT TIME WILL NOT QUALIFY

    NOTE:AS OF ALL POSTS FROM TWELVE NOON EASTERN TIME, THURSDAY, JANUARY 27th, Any posting AFTER above date that shows an indication of having been edited will be disqualified. All ballots are LOCKED IN once posted -- the only way to change your ballot is to POST A NEW ONE. The most recently posted Ballot will be considered the valid ballot, and judged by its unique date/time stamp, and prior ballots will be considered void.D.


    Have fun guys!!!!!

    This forum is probably going to get a lot of posts. I'm glad I'm not the poor son of a bitch who has to calculate who the winner is after the Oscars.

    Best Picture

    The King's Speech
    It's a good movie and I picked this mainly because it's Just the kind of movie that the academy likes High Brow period pieces

    Outside shot is Social Network
    This also has the quirky histrionic ... even though it's not all exactly true ... aspect that the people in the academy also like

    Best Director

    "True Grit" Joel Coen and Ethan Coen They deserve it
    If you see the movie you can see their hand at work

    Best Actor

    Colin Firth in "The King's Speech" Almost no contest

    Best Actress

    Natalie Portmen Again No contest

    The rest I see as a toss up and I'd be guessing if I tried
