To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the Academy's all-time favorite films, I'm sure they'll include her even if she never did anything with the film.

Here are the rules just in case you guys forgot them:

01. Predict the winners all 24 categories.

02. You can predict one winner and one OPTIONAL runner-up.

03. A correct prediction with a runner-up gets 2 points, a correct runner-up gets 1 point and a correct prediction with no runner-up gets 3 points.

04. Highest score wins!

05. Deadline for entries/changes would be the moment Chris Rock begins his opening number and/or monologue.

OPTIONAL BONUS TIE BREAKER POINTS! (3 points)

01. Which Best Picture nominee/s will go home empty handed? (it has to be EXACTLY right)

02. Who will be the last person in the In Memoriam montage?

03. Will BB8 show up?
