Thanks Adam! I look forward to this one every year!

Agreed, some tough picks this year. Should have stayed with my gut with Mad Max will sweep all the technical fudge! Nailed Spotlight though! 8)

I feel both lucky and blessed to have won something again. I was a little disappointed by my score this year, but with the exception of Best Song, when the Academy foiled my expectations, they did it by picking something better. How can I complain?

I'll be pleased to accept the Ansin print. I don't care very much about The Rocketeer, but the art looks stunning.

Thanks for another year of fun, Adam! All the Nerdskulls to you!

:shock: Can't believe that I beat RA, and doubly can't believe that I won 3rd.

I'll take the Jay Ryan Witness set please.

Many thanks again to RA for running this competition. Great fun every year :clap:

And thanks also to all who contribute the prizes. :pint: :notworthy:

Big thanks to RA and congrats to all the winners! Some fun upsets made up for some questionable production choices (presenter captions/winner "thank you" ticker/Stacey Dash/playing winners off about 30 seconds too soon.) Overall, I enjoyed the show and look forward to participating in the RO's next year.

Was happy to see Inside Out win ... as a dad, that friggin' cartoon kicked my butt.

A bit surprised Amy won the Best Doc, I preferred The Look of Silence or Cartel Land, and actually Montage of Heck was my favorite documentary - but was totally overlooked for some reason.

Congrats to GatorCanes and nice job by RottenAtom once again. I missed out entering this year, but it's become a nice EB tradition.

First, I'd like to thank Adam for hosting the contest once again, and thank you to all those who generously donated prizes. It's threads like these, and acts like those that keep me coming back to EB.

Like everyone who participated this year, I absolutely love movies. Growing up, I would wake up early to watch the nominations (most of the time being late to, or missing, school that day). My parents were great about stuff like that. Though, I think the quality of the nominees has overall been weaker than the heyday of the Oscars for my lifetime (early 90s to mid 00s) I still look forward to the ceremony every year. I love to see the upsets (Brody over Day-Lewis for Actor), and I love to see wins that upset me (King’s Speech (a movie based on a play??) over Inception for best ORIGINAL screenplay… this one still makes me so mad).

I’m such a movie nerd, in high school I did my advance level math project on movies. Without getting too into it, I asked people to name their favorite movie and I did a chi squared test to see whether the choice of a person’s favorite movie was related to how many Academy Awards that movie won. Admittedly, not the most scientific hypothesis but it was a lot of fun.
As is usual for me, it came down to two categories: animated short and live action short that separated me from the pack (or at least revmod). I’d like to say that I knew who was going to win, but I didn’t. I didn’t see a single one of the nominees. I read their synopsises and I made, an albeit meagerly informed, informed guess.

I’ll just end on this. I really believe movies are great. Movies allow us to escape our lives for 2 hours, we don’t have to worry about bills or politics or even missed print drops. We can connect with characters and feel empathy and happiness, excitement and fear. I’ll never drive down Fury Road, or step into a ring with a Heavy Weight champ, but thanks to the movies last year I feel like I have.

Thanks again to Adam, please continue to do this as long as it makes you happy. It’s definitely a highlight of the year for a lot of us.

You're right - those two categories took the wind out of my sails.

Great speech! Congratulations on solid predictions in a tough, tough year.
