Damien was the only one to get Music by Prudence (Documentary Short). Greg, Reza, FilmFan, DylanFan and I all picked it as our second choice.

Cinemanolis was the only to get Logorama (Animated Short). Greg, Barry Brooks, Franz Ferdinand, Damien, Eric and rain Bard all picked it as their second choice.

Greg, Barry Brooks, Jeffrey and Mashari all got The New Tenants (Live Action Short). Franz Ferdinand, Reza, rudeboy, Jack, Zahveed, dws and I all picked it as our second choice.

Greg was the only one to get all three either as his first or second choice. Greg, in fact, led consistently throughout the evening as second and third place runners-up continued to change. Ironic considering how Greg thought a contest this year would be a waste of time as most of the winners were predictable.

Hats off to the winners.

For my info: who did the best among the blind luck categories (doc. short, live short, animated short)? I scored a magnificent 0-for-6 in those categories -- watched my chances of winning here vanish in about three minutes -- and would be curious if anyone did well in what seemed an especially random year.

It still wouldn't get me into first place though.

Congratulations to the winners. You are in third place on points and second place on number of right picks - you and Greg are the only ones who got 18 right but since he made his choices known first he gets to wear the crown.

Dang! I had your Animated Feature pick as Secret of the Kells, an obvious error I should have caught.

Sorry for the mix-up. Anyone else who thinks I screwed up their count please let me know and I'll check it out.

You are in third place by points and in second place by number of correct guesses. You and Greg are the only ones to get 18 right but since he made his submission before you, he gets to wear the crown.

Not that it really matters, but I actually had 18/24 instead of 17/24. (I missed Adapted Screenplay, Sound Editing, Foreign Film, Animated Short, Live Action Short, Documentary Short) My runner-up choice won in three of the categories I missed. It still wouldn't get me into first place though.

Congratulations to the winners.

Thanks a lot Magilla for tabulating!

And congrats to Greg & Damien!

I ran the winners two ways, by total points and most number 1 picks scored and Greg wins both ways! He won with a total of 20 points, matched only by Damien, but since Greg was first to predict, he gets the win.

Greg was he only one to guess the winner in 18 out of 24 categories.
