Join the In Contention Oscar pool!

Posted by · 5:09 pm · February 12th, 2009

The diligent folks at have come up with a slick Oscar pool system that was just too good to pass up, so I went ahead and started a group for the IC readership and staff.  Go register now (which is seriously a painless process) and join our little group, then start making your picks.  The pool is called “In Contention Oscar Pool — 2009 Academy Awards Game.”

There is a nifty interface to alter the point values for each category, so based on how predictable a category seems to be at this stage, a value between 1 and 10 has been allotted.  All the points add up to 100.  No idea what I was doing, but whatever, it should work out.  Most points for correctly guessing Best Documentary Short.  Least for Best Animated Feature and Best Supporting Actor — duh.

Join up and see how you fare with the rest of us!

    You can sign up directly on the site, actually. It’s a public pool. Go to where it says “Academy Awards game,” click it and make your picks.
