I was thinking as I looked at your picks that you seemed to be shooting for the booby prize. Nice work,

I don't remember this being historically the way it was always done. I only remember us ever doing 2 points for win, 1 point for RU. That's the only way I ever remember playing. So, go ahead and delete my results from your results posts since I was participating in a completely different contest than I thought.

Oh, and just because you put it in the rules doesn't mean that I had time to read them. I posted late in the process because other things were going on. I saw others doing RU and without reading their predictions, I made mine. Again, I played by old rules that apparently you changed for reasons I won't understand.

It has always been this way. I even posted the rules! I even spelled the word OPTIONAL on all caps. Scroll down.

Wow! I never win these things. :shock:

I would like to thank the Golden Globes for selecting Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as hosts. Not only were they hilarious, but they showed how you can make fun of Hollywood without coming off as completely mean. Unfortunately they only make me dread the shit we are going to be subjected to with Seth MacFarlane.

I also want to thank the show for keeping up this trend of having the most unpredictable Oscar season I have ever seen since I started following the Oscars (on the original version of this board) back in 1999. Now hopefully LIFE OF PI wins the PGA, ZERO DARK THIRTY wins the DGA, MOONRISE KINGDOM and SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK win their respective WGA categories, and at SAG LES MISERABLES wins ensemble, while John Hawkes, Marion Cotillard, Javier Bardem, and Maggie Smith all win their respective categories. That will keep us guessing until the moment each envelope is opened at the Academy Award ceremony.

Operation Oscar Chaos seems to be a rousing success!

The results!

HarryGoldfarb = 0 points :lol:

OscarGuy = 19 points (To be fair, OscarGuy, your biggest misstep is putting runners-up on EVERY prediction. Had you gambled on a 3 points or nothing in a few categories, you could've had a higher score).

criddic3 = 23 points (He is however the ONLY person to get a point in the Best Screenplay category, having Django Unchained as a runner-up)

Sabin, Cinemanolis & Mister Tee = 25 points.

dws1982 = 26 points

Big Magilla, FilmFan720, ITALIANO and The Original BJ = 27 points.

And the winners with 30 points are:

anonymous1980 & rolotomasi99!!!

HOWEVER, I am going to relinquish my win solely to rolotomasi99 because he was able to win without predicting runners-up so I salute your bravery and hereby crown you as sole champion. :D

For what it's worth, Oscarguy, I like how you did it this year and was refreshing my screen relatively constantly.

I got tired of posting individual discussion topics on the forums, so I'm just updating them on my site. I'll create a separate GG thread.
