    You asked for it, you got it

    You want to make predictions about Oscar results?

    If you are not sure what they are (the Oscar's I mean), then I am not sure how you found this thread...

    Just think of a small golden statue of a man holding a stick being given out to some undeserving actors/actresses/directors/general nobodies related to films in some way or other.
    Think far too many emotions
    Crying (most fake, but there may be a few genuine tears here and there)
    Fancy costumes
    Think the exact kind of occasion which Kanye West may rush up on stage, uninvited, and make an arse of himself!

    Think this
    [​IMG]

    So ask yourself: Who do you think is going to win? What are your favourite nominees?
    Who do you think will win (and more importantly, who do you think should win)...

    Also, to increase the fun all the way to 11 - there's a fancy competition (with a possibility to win a nice badge also [terms and conditions apply - badges may be revoked/not given out at moderator's discretion])

    [​IMG]

    To be fair, you should really play - even if you hate the Oscars - especially if you hate the Oscars... only because, if you win, you can lord it over all those who actually do care!

    So, with that all said, I present:

    MH Oscars Contest 2018

    It's that time again, time to pretend that you know more about films than you actually do.
    Time to unequivocally state why your choices are correct and why anyone who thinks otherwise is a moron
    (please don't actually do this - peace and love for everyone ね :love)

    ...
    Anyway
    It all finally culminates on Sunday the 4th March, at the 90th Academy Awards.
    Awards will be handed out for all kinds of film related categories - Best Film, Best Actor/Actress in a leading role, Best person-who-wasn't-good-enough-to-be-the-leading-actor-so-we-made-a-runners-up-prize-to-make-them-feel-better... There's even an award for hairstyling?!?

    We at Mangahelpers are hosting our own Oscar winners poll, with the chance to win your own Oscar. As an award badge [again, if anyone asks, although I wrote this, I don't promise nuthin'!].

    Rules:
    - Go here and make your picks!
    - The user with the most correct guesses wins the award. Remember to leave your username in the poll.
    last year, some bright sparks forgot this/wrote random handles (they didn't win, funnily enough - mainly cause I am far too lazy to try and guess/think about who is who - make it simple if you want to win. If not, just write your name as M3J and pick shitty picks)
    - Only 1 entry allowed. In case an user does multiple entries, only the last one counts.
    - In case of a tie, the user with most corrects in the Big 5 Categories wins. (Best Film, Directing, Lead Actor, Lead Actress, and both Screenplay categories)
    - If still a tie, then I am sure we will be able to think of some way to separate the quality wheat from the less-savoury chaff
    -There is time to vote until 5:00 p.m. PST on March 4, 2018 // 1AM on March 5th GMT
    - You are allowed to discuss your picks and personal favourites in the thread. Telling us why you voted how you voted is highly important necessary recommended.


    And remember, if you lose:

    1. You weren't actually trying - if you were, you'd have crushed everyone else easily!
    2. You didn't really care anyway
    3. Someone probably cheated, bribing a mod to miscount their votes...
    4. Who are these mods anyway - blithering idiots must have made a mistake somewhere or other
    5. It's only the Oscars - not some actually important award - like the Golden Cleric or something

    Yup. I was gonna stay up all night watching, but changed my mind at around 0:30 (ceremony started 2:30 here). My kid woke me up at about 5, though, so I wathed the last hour or so. Couldn't believe what I was watching when it happened. Was reading to my son and then just stopped and cringed for fifteen minutes mid-book...

    A few days ago I saw a little news story how Price Waterhouse counts the votes by hand, prints up two copies of the envelopes, memorizes the results, keeps them separate in two briefcases handcuffed to two people and they separately go to the awards.

    After all that they screw up which envelope to hand out?
    The only way this could happen would be if they were alternating between briefcases, otherwise how could there be a second copy of the "Best Actress" envelope? Emma Stone should have her Oscar along with the 1st "Best Actress" envelope.

    Anyway, Price Waterhouse apologized apparently.

    It's a shame that I haven't had much time to watch films recently - especially as going to the cinema is nigh on impossible

    Have a load of these nominations in my 'to watch' list

    I’ve yet to see Phantom Thread and I have zero interest in The Post. Other than those I’m pretty caught up with the heavy contenders.

    Submitted. I feel Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay are the really tough ones this year. Best Visual Effects as well, to a degree. And I want to think Editing, Sound Editing and Sound Mixing isn’t a done deal because Baby Driver deserves if not all of them then at least one (which I don’t think it’ll get).

    I have a list of “Will win - Could win - Should win” like last year but I’ll put that up at a later stage.

    I snuck in a lot of the main choices recently. Had to go on hype for some of the categories though.

    I'll probably win :nod
