How My Oscar Pool Works
$5 pool - winner takes all!
Submissions due Sunday, March 12 @ 8pm ET / 5pm PT
(The day of the Oscars, precisely @ showtime! :)
***TO COMPETE, YOU MUST SEND ME $5 IN SOME WAY!***
1) Venmo: @Tommy-Dickie
2) PayPal: firstname.lastname@example.org
4) check?? haha
(ask me for my address if you want to mail me 3 or 4)
*If you don't pay me by showtime, your ballot won't count!*
THIS YEAR I'M INCLUDING ALL CATEGORIES!!!
(But the "Top 8" are worth 5 points each - or 10 for Best Pic - while the rest are only 1 point each.)
And also as you'll see, the pool requests that you rank all the nominees for each of those categories (from most likely to win to least likely). Why? Because let's say Joe Schmo wins Best Actor, by some surprise. Well, if Predictor A ranked him 2nd most likely, and Predictor B ranks him 5th, I want A to get some credit for that!
So here's how the scoring works:
If the nominee you rank first wins, you get 5 points. If the nominee you rank 2nd wins, you get 4 points, and on down to 1 point if your bottom rank takes the prize. (Though it's 10 points if you get Best Picture right, as there are 10 nominees there; and so on.)
So click on the link, go to town, and I'll score 'em all the day after the ceremony!!
Enjoy, and may the best human win :)
