Please join me in participating in the Screen Jam Oscar Pool.
Just to make things more interesting or different, I've decided to give some of the categories extra weight.
4 points: Picture
3 points: Lead and supporting actor and actress, director, adapted and original screenplay, animated feature, documentary feature, foreign language film
2 points: Art direction, cinematography, costume design, film editing, makeup, original score, original song, sound editing, sound mixing, visual effects
1 point: Documentary short, animated and live-action short film
Tiebreaker: Time of day that the telecast ends in Los Angeles.
I'll post my picks before the kudocast, as we say at Variety, begins. The only time I ever won an Oscar pool was shortly after my kids were born and I had seen next to none of the films, so I'm not counting on my recent viewing experience to help me.
Will there be a prize for the winner? If I can think of something appropriate ... otherwise, just enter for the fun of it.
