I say it every year. This is one of the longest running annual competitions on the Dope.

So…let’s do it again!

The Oscars are coming up. I’ve created a pool over on FunOfficePools.com. Join and put your picks in!

Uh, it looks like Cecil Oscar Pick’em 2014 is set up as a Football Square pool. :slight_smile:

I will fix this and repost the proper link. My bad. :slight_smile:

It should be fixed now, but you will have to rejoin. Please check and let me know if it worked. :slight_smile:

In again and all set to be the Most Improved!

The results from the 2012 pool – didn’t I win last year? :dubious:

:smack:

I’m still failing to think of 2013 as last year. You did win and last year’s results were:

Nominations came out last week, so giving this one a bump…

The website does not recognize the Pool name given in the OP

Apparently they don’t like apostrophes, either

I got the same message but it’s the apostropes in your user name that it doesn’t like, not the group name. When I did the group name (with apostrophe) and my name (without), there was no problem.

It worked when I removed mine, but I’m noticing other team names with apostrophes. Weird.

Either way, I’m in.

It’s the same name as other years, just updated to say 2014. If you want me to change it, I can.

No, it’s no big deal. The damnable things just aren’t allowed on individual names, though they’re allowed on pool names. Just a bit confusing.

Bump…

bump…

The Oscars are this week, folks. Get signed up!

The Oscars are tomorrow! Get signed up and get your picks in!

I’ve updated my pics and am glad for having done so.

I did an analysis (somewhat) of BP winners and financial success and the one thing that always has been true is that you can knock off the lowest-grossing movie among the BP nominees from the list (and when the field is expanded to 9-10, you can knock off the two least grossing films from among the list of nominees.)

So, my advice: Don’t pick Her or Nebraska to win BP. I’m just sayin’.

My final picks are in! For the past two years running I’ve won the Oscar pool at the Oscar parties I’ve attended, so crossing my fingers here!
