I made it! I squeezed in quite a few of the movies, but this is the first time in many years I was unable to watch ALL before the awards. Still, 5/9 isn't too bad. 🙂 What is holding me up is Best Picture, which is almost an impossible task between Three Billboards, Shape of Water, and Get Out. I am almost ready to flip a coin. Yikes!

1. Best Picture - Get Out
2. Actor In a Leading Role -Gary Oldman
3. Actor In a Supporting Role - Sam Rockwell
4. Actress In a Leading Role =Frances Mcdormand
5. Actress In a Supporting Role - Allison Janney
6. Animated Feature Film - Coco
7. Cinematography - Blade Runner 2049
8. Directing - Guillermo Del Toro
9. Documentary (feature) -Faces Places
10. Extra special question
Which film will win the most Oscars? The Shape of Water (3)

Ok, thanks everyone for throwing your hat in the ring and giving this a go. I think this is probably our biggest Academy Awards comp yet, with the most number of entrants. First I'll just confirm that the answer to our special question of which film will win the most oscars is The Shape of Water which won 4, just ahead of Dunkirk with 3.

This is how I counted the leaderboard:

coolsongss: 10
vomvom12: 10
sharpe: 9
hope777: 8
WaroftheGods: 8
barbadosslim93: 6
CL-Ed: 6
bossulo: 5
Winindo: 5
Rooster: 4
JennaRose: 3
CL-klaw: 2
Almeyda: 0

So congratulations to coolsongss and vomvom12 for both picking all 10 out of 10, which is a rare achievement. Special mentions to sharpe for getting so close with 9 correct picks, and Almeyda for not getting a single one. I wish you both better luck next time! 😉

As promised if anyone gets all 10 right we double the pot to 200 CLchips, and since there are two winners you share it and get 100 each. Thanks for playing everyone!

Wow, I was surprised at the results too 🙂

Among the nominated movies, I saw Dunkirk, Get Out, The Shape of Water, The Post, Coco, Loving Vincent. Some movies haven't shown in Korea yet, some are showing now actually.
I was very lucky to make right guesses.

I was tempted to choose Dunkirk for the last question because the movie was really great in many aspects, hew 😀

Thank CL-Ed and other members for congratulations.

I am very happy 🙂

Oh, you speak English quite well and I thought that you were a very good student in school 😀
I had a very bad score last year, so you can make it too next time:)

And, I think that you are referring to the movie - The Shape Of Water, correct ?

This movie was a kind of re-creation of the old movie - Creature from the Black Lagoon.

And you know, there is the NetEnt slot of the same name 😀

This game can give very big wins 👍
