Glad to see you’re enthusiastic, iampunha, but thirteen’s the limit. Maybe you could donate a few of your picks to Bosda; he came up short.
People have asked what they get for winning this contest. Some people have suggested monetary prizes. Those people are welcome to send their money to the winner if they so wish.
However, I do agree that those of us who won’t be winning the big prize need something to comfort us during our cold and lonely nights. So, in keeping with other suggestions, I’ve added some extra awards. They may not be “Best Picture” but “Best Sound Effects in a Foreign Language Animated Feature” is better than nothing. So this year, we’ll be giving out the following additonal awards:
The “Quantity not Quality” Award - for the person who picks the most dead celebrities regardless of their actual point value.
The “Inside Track with the Grim Reaper” Award - for anyone who picks a dead celebrity that no other player picked.
The “Opening Kickoff” Award - for whoever picks the first celebrity to die in 2002.
The “Final Hours” Award - for whoever picks the last celebrity to die in 2002.
And four very special awards to be chosen by an open vote on this thread. Anyone can nominate another player and everyone can vote on who will receive these awards.
The “Make a Wish” Award - for whoever’s picks most reflect the apparent hope that those celebrities die.
The “Dead or Canadian” Award - for whoever’s picks surprise the most people by the fact they’re still alive in the first place.
The “World Famous in Poland” Award - for whoever’s picks are the most obscure.
The “That’s Not Funny, That’s Sick” Award - for whoever’s picks are in the poorest taste.
