    Too bad, I saw this contest too late. I managed 19 on the night at our own Oscar pool in London.

    Who had the worst? I bet it was me, since I only correctly predicted 10 out of 24. :(

  3. February 25, 2008

    Oh wow…I’m on that list. I should have gone with my initial predix, because my final score was a lot lower than that lol.

    wait— that first group of people all got 20??? wow!

    Hmm, I’m in that first group and I’m pretty sure I got 18 (I’m most proud of calling both Marion and Tilda). Maybe that first grouping of people should be part of the 18 group below? Or maybe I did better than I thought…

    My other comment in this thread was before I checked the results in the forum and sure enough, I was dead last! Woohoo. :)

    Congrats all! I only got 17, but I am proud.
    Again, congrats.

    Sounds like there’s plenty of Sultans material here at AD. I wonder how the “experts” fared, such as Tom O’Neil, Jeff Wells, David Poland, Dave Karger, etc.

    Actually, Zac, I only got 5 right–original screenplay, actor, supporting actor, song, and score. I don’t think anyone but a two year old child could top that. Okay, maybe a one year old child.

    I was talking about the contest in the forums. Did you enter that one, because that is the one that I was last in.

    I got 17 and am pretty proud. There is no way I would have settled on Tilda and The Golden Compass, though hindsight is always 20/20. Dammit, now if I had only gone with my heart on Elizabeth’s costumes, it would have been 18!!
