Home Theater Forum's Oscar Pool

Welcome to the 2009 HTF Oscar Contest!

The rules here are simple.

Predict the winner in all 24 categories.

You must be a registered member at Home Theater Forum to play and enter your forum name on your ballot! Once you've submitted your predictions, you must copy them back into a post here for them to be considered final. Choose carefully as you may not change them once you've submitted and posted. An edited post will be considered null and void. This poll closes as soon as the show begins at 5:30 PM PST, on Sunday, February 22nd.

This year's winner gets bragging rights, and if I can find a couple of blu-rays, I may be able toss a couple of BDs in the direction of the winner. (US/Canada address only, this is charity, after all)

The tie breaker is "Documentary Short", followed by "Live Action Short", followed by "Documentary Feature".

To play, go to:

HTF - Oscars Pickem Pool

If for some reason that doesn't work for ya, you can also tell folks to go to Oscars Pickem Pool and enter this pool id: 75349

Get those ballots in before the Sunday evening deadline! Good luck!
