    Oscar Game 2017

    The Rules:
    Pick a film which you think will win (not who you want) in each category, and post your picks. You have until the Oscars start airing on TV to edit any last minute changes. I'll count up the scores and post the winners after all is said and done. Obviously you're awarded the amount of points indicated. The total for all points is 100. If you've failed to pick 1 choice and end up with more than one, I'll count the one listed first. Also, to resolve a tie, the person with the most correct top picks will get the advantage. If you need to change an answer after you've submitted the form, you'll have to submit the entire form again.
