Actually I tied for first place. The prize? Just a bit of recognition by the good folks at the North County Times. Here's the email.
And the winner is...
According to our online ballot form, Aaron Claverie and Robert McLaughlin tied for first by correctly predicting 10 out of 24 Oscar winners.
Theresa Struffert and I tied for second by predicting eight. Bill Ramsey, Megan Russell and Kathy Vogt predicted seven.
None of us saw Tilda Swinton winning best supporting actress, and only Megan picked Marion Cotillard for best actress.
Thanks to Denis Devine [film critic for the paper] and Pam Kragen for giving someone else a chance this year by not entering.
