Watched the SAG's, and I think this could be a tough Oscar year. That, or I just couldn't predict the SAG awards to save my life :lol:

It feels like there are more decently-contested categories than usual this year. I've seen five of the Best Picture nominees so far, and appreciated them all.

Hey revmod! I think you're right. Lots of categories still up in the air.

Hi! I traditionally post the Rotten Oscars thread 2 weeks before the contest and my plan was to post it today, but I recently realized that the site we used last year is not yet set up for 2017. When I try to start a new pool it says "Pools are closed for 2016. We'll be back in 2017." I tried reaching out to them via the contact tab on their site and it doesn't appear that the message goes through.

I've been looking for a site that is a suitable alternative and haven't found anything for free. I found one site that will work for our needs but it costs to use it. I'm going to wait a day or so (but not much longer than that) to see if the site from last year becomes an option or see if I can possibly find another one. Let me know if you know of a free site with good functionality. If not, we'll use the one I found and I'll pony up the dough.

Thread coming soon with prize reveals. Just want everything to run as smooth as possible. :pint:

Thanks guys. It's tiered pricing, so depending on how many folks enter, I may accept small donations on a voluntary basis, but nothing mandatory. Most likely it won't be necessary though.

The 2017 Rotten Oscars thread is up!
