Oscar Pick'em Contest

Discussion in 'Open Discussion (Work-safe)' started by LoKyBuckeye, Feb 23, 2004.

  1. LoKyBuckeye

    LoKyBuckeye I give up. This board is too hard to understand. Staff Member

    I ususally put a few of these together for my staff and friends every year and I figured I'd throw it out here as well. Simply post which movie you pick for each catagory... most correct answers will get the prize. I'm not sure what I can give right now... maybe some movie posters or passes (if you live near a theatre that belongs to the company I work for), I just got a pretty cool watch from Dreamworks with their logo on it. I'll come up with something. Maybe LOTR items.... not sure if I have anything left though...

    I usually throw in one or two obscure awards (Short Film animated and Foreign language just to mix it up a bit :) )

    Now this won't have the glory as the football pick'em contest but it could be a fun event for the offseason.

    Picks should be in by Sunday (2/29 ) afternoon... 1pm.

    :oh: :io:

    The best part of the entire show? Will Farrell and Jack Black singing the song they play when the thank you's run over, especially when Will said Sting and started cracking up.
