The Numbers 17th Annual Predict the Academy Awards Contest

The Numbers annual Predict the Academy Awards Competition is back, providing you with a chance to win some great prizes, and for all of our readers collectively to predict who will win the Oscars on March 2. The top selections for Best Picture and Best Animated Feature go on to win the Oscar on the night over 80% of the time—so this is also a great way to find out who's the favorite to win on the night.

Uniquely among Oscar contests, when you make your predictions, we show you how many people have voted for each movie so far, and allow you to go back and change your choices. In fact, you can come back at any time to update your predictions as news breaks and sentiment changes about different nominees. But beware: our tie-breaking rule if multiple people correctly predict the same number of winners is that whoever made their picks first will win the prize.

So enter now for your best chance of winning our grand prize: every film nominated for Best Picture on DVD or Blu-ray. We will send you all nine films that are nominated as soon as they become available on the home market, and you get to choose either the DVD or Blu-ray version.

Our second-placed finisher will receive the Best Picture winner and Best Animated Feature winner.

And finally, as an added incentive to everyone who enters regularly, the highest-scoring player from our All-Time Top 200 Players list will receive the Best Picture winner on their choice of DVD or Blu-ray.

See our complete set of rules for more information.



Note: Players from overseas are welcome to submit predictions for the contest, but are not eligible for prizes. We will, however, make a special mention of our top-scoring overseas player.

Multiple Email Addresses: If you enter from multiple email addresses, only the votes you enter first will be eligible for prizes. Entries from other email addresses will not be eligible for prizes.
