OSCAR BALLOTon February 17, 2009 at 6:58 am
If you listened to The Triple Feature last night (and if you missed it, don't worry - just subscribe to our feed on iTunes!) you'll know that Gordon, Joe and I made our official Oscar picks in advance of the televised broadcast this Sunday. We decided to make it interesting by making a tiny wager. The two people with the least amount of correct predictions has to draw a guest strip for a winning artist. So if Gordon gets the most correct, Joe and I have to draw him a guest strip. Kind of fun, right?
Part of that agreement was that the three of us would post our marked Oscar ballots and submit them to public record. That way, it keeps everyone honest. No last minute changes before or during the broadcast.
My ballot is kind of large, so you'll have to click here to view it. But it's there for anyone who is interested.
I think most of the major categories are already sewn up. But I voted for a few dark horse contenders after looking at a few statistical averages and trends among Academy votes in the past. As far as the technical categories go, I have a theory that I'm hoping pays off. Where I get really lost is in the documentary and short film categories.
You'll have to take a look at my ballot and tell me what you think. Do you think I have a shot at winning our little competition?
