Today, the nominations for the 78th Academy Awards were announced. You can see them [link=http://www.oscar.com/nominees/list.html]here[/link]. So we're going to try a game that's new to the JC! A big thank you to Captain_Typho for the suggestion Here's how the game works: [blockquote]-Now that this thread has been posted, the game has begun. -The game ends on the midnight board time immediately before the Academy Awards air. This means the deadline to submit your Oscar picks is Saturday, (the evening of) March 4th at midnight. -To participate, please copy the list of nominations below and select one under each category and then post your picks in this thread. (This means if you neglect to pick in one category, you are missing out on the chance for a point that others are getting... so don't forget any categories!) -You can change your picks after your initial vote, in two ways: 1. merely repost your list and indicate that this is the updated version. Do NOT post indicating you want one thing changed on a previous post of yours. This could get overlooked and mess up your results! The other way is to PM me and provide me with the updated version and I will swap it into your old post. -No changes will be allowed past the midnight deadline. [/blockquote] And the Rewards: [blockquote]After the Oscars have been given out, Captain_Typho is going to help me go over all the submissions and we will determine the winners. They will be scored one point for each accurate guess. The person(s) with the highest number of right guesses will receive 3 days of colors and the title "Census Predict the Oscars Winner." [/blockquote] Extra Rules: [blockquote]-Only one final vote per person allowed. Anyone caught voting with socks will be disqualified. -Feel free to converse about the Oscars in this thread, but anyone exhibiting severely rude behavior (banable behavior) may additionally be disqualified from the game.[/blockquote] If you have any questions feel free to PM me or post them in this thread. A PM will get you a quicker response. Hopefully this game will be fun for all and something that we can repeat next year. Good Luck and Enjoy!
