First, thanks to all involved for participating in our Oscar pool. The big winners were Mikey Filmmaker and Justin Wolfhope who nailed 22 of 24 categories for a score of 88 points (out of 100). I weighted the scoring system based on the predictability of the categories. Mikey and Justin both missed the same two categories: Best Sound Mixing and Best Documentary Short. They went for “The Dark Knight” on the former and “The Conscience of Nhem En” on the latter.
Yours truly came in second with 21 of 24 categories for a score of 83. I went with my heart on Mickey Rourke and my heart failed me. Let that be a lesson to us all.
Mikey and Justin, if you’re reading, send me an email when you can. I think I’ll offer up a prize for such fantastic Oscar prognosticating prowess.
