Last week I asked you to make your Oscar predictions in 7 of the toughest to predict Oscar categories. It was the best attended contest yet. Due to the crazy awards year most of the entries were way off (I'm assuming y'all didn't do much better than my 15/24 ratio of success). Winners of this contest are Matthew from Canada and Ritesh from California who both guessed 5 of the 7 categories correctly. In the tie breaker "guess the dress colors" contest, though neither contestant had an exact match, Ritesh came closest to the right color on Helen Mirren and in doing so wins a DVD of Canada's foreign film nominee Water. [side note: Ritesh, who also won the SAG prediction a year ago, must be some kind of prognosticating genius! ] Matthew wins the screenplay to Thank You For Smoking. Your prizes will be in the mail this week.
Thanks to everyone who participated. I'm working on an elaborate contest for March, so stay tuned. I wanna also bow down to Glenn, Adam and Amir from Oxford who all got 4 of the 7 categories right ~they almost made it to the winner's circle.
Finally a nod to our most sartorially psychic participants. Michael from Beverly Hills was the only person to get Helen Mirren exactly right with "I want to say champagne" Fred from Ohio was in the right ballpark for Helen and Kate's color choices and Ziyad from Israel did the same for Helen and Jennifer's looks.
Speaking of Jennifer --she couldn't keep her clothes on. She changed three times that night. Which was your favorite look?
