REMINDER: Get Ready for Our Oscar Contest!

The Academy Awards show airs on Sunday February 26. That means you have just over two weeks to get caught up on your movie-watching, especially if you want to participate in our first ever Online Oscar Pickin' Contest.
  • Entry in the contest is free.
  • Ballots will be collected via online survey (I'll publish a link a few days before the show).
  • Participants will vote on the following 8 categories:
    • Best Picture
    • Best Director
    • Leading Actor
    • Leading Actress
    • Supporting Actor
    • Supporting Actress
    • Original Screenplay
    • Adapted Screenplay
The participant with the most correct picks wins a (maybe not so) fabulous prize, and of course, the winner will be announced on The Way Things Turn website.

Here's a link to the entire list of nominees for reference. See you at the movies!


  1. Best Picture: The Artist
    Best Director: Michel Hazanavicius, The Artist
    Best Actress: Viola Davis, The Help
    Best Actor: George Clooney, The Decendants
    Best Supporting Actress: Octavia Spencer, The Help
    Best Supporting Actor: Christopher Plummer, Beginners
    Best Original Screenplay: Midnight in Paris, Woody Allen

    1. You got 6 out of 8 (and the winner was 7 of 8). But you also needed to complete the official entry form/survey I linked in a subsequent post. Good work though!
