The the winner is...

The big night has come and gone.  All the winners have been announced, except ONE!

I received a total of 9 entries in my Oscar Pool, 10 if you count my picks but I wasn't competing for the prize.  Thanks to all of your who participated it was really nice to have such a great response this year.  So without further ado, here are top standings.

  1. Brian - 17
  2. Diane - 14
  3. Alisen - 12
  4. Don, Katharine, Teresa - 10

Congratulations Brian!  Your prize will be sent to you shortly!

Got caught by the Ballard Bridge and ended up as the first car, a first for me.  :-)

Oscar Pool

My friend Alisen updated her Facebook status in the middle of the Super Bowl last Sunday with the following, "...awaiting my super bowl @ the end of the month....the oscars baby! This football stuff is for the birds." You said it girl! If it weren't for the ads, the Super Bowl would be of very little interest to me. But I LOVE the Oscars. I love the red carpet, the dresses, the jewelry, the speeches, the tears, the gold statues, all of it.

If you are as Oscar obsessed like me you are probably already making your picks so why not test you predicting skills against others and enter my Oscar Poll.  Fellow blogger Defective Yeti puts together this script every year and shares it with the blogosphere, isn't that nice of him. Click this link, fill in your answers and click the "Send Picks" button.

IMPORTANT: If I don't know you (meaning that we aren't connected through another site e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Blogger or we aren't friends in real life) please send me an email at and let me know that you entered the pool and what name you used. This is very important to prevent an incomplete contest like 4 years ago. To this day I still have no idea who Ron R. is.

The person with most correct answers will win a $50 gift certificate to Amazon.  The winner will be announced on Monday, February 28th right here on my blog.

Good luck! And don't forget to tune in for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards on Sunday, February 27, 2011 on ABC at 5:00 p.m. PST.
