gambling

As you all know, the 2010 Academy Awards are this Sunday, at 8PM, on ABC. Everyone should definitely come back to http://www.videogum.com on Oscar night, as we will be live-somethinging it. Neat! And this year, just to make things even more EXCITING (because if there is one word that definitely describes the Academy Awards, it is “excitement”) we are introducing the Videogum Oscar Pool. It is almost exactly like your office’s Oscar pool, but with so much less having to awkwardly interact with people at your office that you do not like interacting with.

“Hey!”
–Rebecca in Accounts Receivable

Anyway, the way to play the Videogum Oscar Pool is very simple. After the jump, I have reposted all of this year’s nominees. Simply select who you think is going to win, and post your selections in the comments before Sunday, March 7th, at 8PM EST. Whoever has the most correct answers will win (WIN!) two movie tickets and a large popcorn to the movie and popcorn of your choice. In the reasonably likely event that more than one person has the highest number of correct guesses, we will hold a random drawing in our pajamas to determine the Highlander of this contest. Good luck!

  24. I’m gonna vote for Jeremy Renner to win, but not for The Hurt Locker, but for 28 Weeks Later. Not for his performance, which was fine I guess, but for some funny shit he said about zombies on the DVD.

    If that happens, I feel I’d be entitled to at least a pack of Milk Duds.

  25. I absolutely already lost.

  43. I have a real Sophie’s Choice (it’s no where near a real Sophie’s Choice) of either watching the Oscars with the V-gum Pizza Party or going to a live screened broadcast at my local theatre, which was totally awesome last year and was like a live Pizza Party in the sense that there was lots of booze and shenanigans. But what ever will I do without the appropriate .gifs to help me reconcile my frustration when the James Cameron inevitably wins something he doesn’t deserve?

    • Please note that I didn’t jot down who I wanted to win, just who I thought will win. I’m pretty sure that goes without saying for everybody. I just saw Avatar today for the first time, and I definitely witnessed why it’s getting awards.

      My personal favorite for every category it’s nominated in is A Serious Man. That movie was fucking good. But I predict a weird tit for tat for the awards Cameron wins that people will think Bigelow should have won otehrwise, and then giving The Hurt Locker awards that should otherwise go to the like of the Coen Bros. and Tarantino. But oh well. It’s just the Oscars.
