Only entries will be allowed in this thread. For general discussion of the competition and the Oscars themselves, go to this thread. You must be a member of the forum to play. Registering is free, so if you haven’t already by all means do so now. Winner will receive a voucher to the value of £5 with which they’ll be encouraged to b*y a film (in keeping with the site’s theme). Winner will be able to choose which major online retailer they’d like the voucher to be for (e.g. Play.com, HMV.com, Amazon.co.uk). Competition closes at some point (will be announced) near Oscar night. Any entries posted or edited beyond this date will be disqualified. Make sure you make a prediction for every category – you might need to do some guesswork, but the smaller categories count just as much as the major ones in our game. Good luck!
