2008 Oscar Pick ’em winners


Here are the results from this year’s Oscar Pick’em. The RVANews groupthink picks actually out performed or tied every single entrant. KingBling tied JeremyLRoss but won with the tie breaker. Ten of you beat the pants off of Justin and Susan while I only beat four people. Thirty people submited picks.

Anyway, KingBling, email me from the address you used in the survey with your mailing address and I’ll send you those movie passes. Congrats!

  1. A note on all the question marks, so Ross will stop yelling at me via IM about tabulations or something: I neglected to pick clear winners for some categories for a couple of reasons. 1. My article was getting too long and 2. Who cares. (And 3. I honestly had no idea about some of the films, and some categories I wasn’t sure who would win because I felt they had an equal chance.)

    Ahh the end of Oscar season! What a relief!

  2. Peter and the wolf, bitches.
