I might have missed it on mobile, but I didn't see a way to just view my ballot without editing, so really I barely remember what I picked a couple weeks ago.
I previously clicked 'edit' to view my picks and left the page without saving. I don't think it affected my tiebreaker but who knows. To quote you:

You know I actually really liked the Martian. I don't think it was one of the 5 or 6 best films of the year though.
Yeah, didn't dislike it either. Only mildly liked. But definitely ditto - not one of the very best of the year.

Just quoting this every page:

Last call! 30 minutes to get your picks in!

Heads up. The deadline to get your picks in is 7pm EST. That is actually when the broadcast starts with the red carpet stuff. I stated in my initial post that you would have until the start of the awards show (as we have done previously) but the website we are using will not allow me to set the deadline any later than 7pm EST (6pm CST 4pm PST).

Well damn. My post count was just 12345 and I totally missed it. #thingsthatdon'treallymatter

Just realized I was supposed to put a pic of an "Oscar winning movie" or actual award show moment, so my pic of Sicario would not apply. :cry:

So here's a random pic of Emily Blunt from a previous Academy Award broadcast

Our returning champion folks :clap:

abstractlyput has finished with the top score in two Rotten Oscars. Last year she won hands down, in 2013 she lost by tiebreaker.

I'm off to a fancy dress party, so I won't have the fun of playing along. If the tiebreak comes up, I haven't messed with my choices since the initial entry, though there's one I'd change if it wouldn't lose me the advantage. Oh well.

Have tonnes of fun! I'll enjoy catching up with the blow-by-blow afterward.

2012- Adam Smasher won with 20/24. I scored 17/24. Old school, no website. Folks posted their ballots in the thread for everyone to see and I added them up while tipsy after the show.

2013- revmod, middayshadows, abstractlyput, and dasponyboy all scored 21/24. revmod won the tie-breaker by one minute. I had 18/24.

2014- Adam Smasher, cms, Count, Ayes, c0bbz, halokiti, DonPiano, Corsair, and myself all scored 22/24. Adam Smasher won the tie-breaker by one minute. 142 participants.

2015- abstractlyput won with 21/24. I scored 20/24. 84 participants.

2016- ????? 63 participants.

Please remember to give a big thanks to all the fine folks that donated prizes and made this possible:

Imma sit this one out on account of doing pretty well on the trivia last year and because I kinda suck at this lel

Big ups to Adam for doing this every year and to the contributors :clap: Only reason I've watched the show the last couple years

Haven't seen Sicario yet but wholeheartedly agree on the other two.
