Predict the 2017 Oscar Nominees!
« on: December 27, 2016, 10:12:24 AM »
This is something I do every year (on Twitter) for what I call the big 8 (Picture, Director, all acting categories, both screenplay categories). But, I'd also be willing to throw it open to all the categories.

For Best Picture, 10 nominees can be submitted (because that's the maximum amount). If a situation happens where, for example, there are only 7 nominees and you correctly guess all of them but still have 3 extra movies, you still will be given 100% for the category.

What's the cut off date for submission?

I might open up a response post and then alter it as the races become more clear.

I will take submissions up until the night before. All I'll be doing is figuring out percentages, so it shouldn't be so hard.

I will still be watching Oscar movies until after the results are out, so I doubt I will be able to put up much of a fight here.

Would there be interest in a Predict The Winners type thing as well? I'm excited to guess the nominees!
