I've only ever seen four of the nominated best comedy or drama series (if you count two episodes of 30 Rock, both of which left me thinking "this is funny?"), so I'll have to pass on this.

Final scores are in the first post of this thread (http://www.talkabouttennis.com/forum/showthread.php?t=19996). Congratulations to luvs10s!! And skatingfan and shtexas for damned close 2nd place!

(I tossed Reality Host.)

This was fun! Even though I came in last, Kyle Chandler's Best Drama Actor win makes it OK. :yes:

Thanks for playing everyone! :)

I had them scored but somehow missed them in the scoring post!

munchin came in a strong 2nd, with shtexas and skating fan tied for 3rd. greenhopper with a respectable 5th place finish.

And after my scoring goof, as should be, I came in 8th, not 6th. :(

Any suggestions on scoring for next year would be welcome. I didn't want to do strictly a one pick equals one point thing.

09-19-2011, 08:09 AM
Oh sweet! I thought I had scored in the negatives because of the gambles or something. I really liked the way it was scored this time. Maybe we could try something like this for the Oscar contest (name all four best actor winners and get a bonus or gamble on Best Costume Design or something).

I'm surprised I even got 6 points.
