    Re: 2012 OSCAR Pick 'Em Challenge

    My new strategy is to not bother with the TAT contest, and use shtexas' picks to win my Oscar party pool. I'm winning by 2, thanks!

    JTC is the only one who guessed Meryl would win. Nice!

    Re: 2012 OSCAR Pick 'Em Challenge

    Oscar winners have been bolded in the first post. In our contest, we have a tie.

    With an (even more) astonishing 19 points are:

    The plucky underdog shtexas and Charlie02123

    Right on their tails is James7 with 18.

    Congratulations to the winners. Seriously shtexas, how are you doing this!?!

    For those who are curious:

    The most common correct category was Best Foreign Language Film (A Separation), which all 11 of us got right.

    The big surprise of the night was Best Film Editing (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) which not a one of us got right

    That was a shock. I cannot remember the last time a film that was not up for best picture won best editing...and against four films that were up for best picture.

    Sadly, she was my only triumph of the night.

    Re: 2012 OSCAR Pick 'Em Challenge

    Woot woot!

    By the way, I'm missing one of the categories we got wrong. I glanced at mine, Shtexas, and James and only see 5 missed on all of ours. What aren't I seeing?

    (I see that I missed 3, 8, 11, 13, 22)

    Re: 2012 OSCAR Pick 'Em Challenge

    SO CLOSE! Only got one more wrong than the winners. I'll forever be the runner up it seems . Got third last year and second the year before.

    Congrats Shtexas, James, and Charlie!

    Shtexas is undefeated.

    Well done, everybody!

    Alas, my love for "Bridesmaids" doomed me to the bottom rung of the contest.

    It looks like the answer is somewhere in between. You and shtexas got 19 (missing Best Actess, Cinematography, Doc Feature, Film Editing and Visual Effects - (I had you both missing Costume Design, which you actually got right)) I still have James7 at 18 (missing Best Actor, Actress, Costume Design, Film Editing, Short Film - Live Action and Visual Effects).

    My apologies, especially to James7.
