The slap

Welcome back to our annual Oscars tipping competition! Use your film knowledge, ask your friends, or just go with dumb luck to predict the winners of the 95th annual Oscars and you could win up to 200 CLChips.

The rules are simple:
1. Entry is free to all Casino Listings members.  Register here if you aren't a member yet.
2. Nominate your winner in each of the categories below in a reply to this thread. The person who picks the most winners scoops the pool of 100 CLchips.
3. If there is a tie we will split the pool evenly.
4. If someone gets every single category right, we'll double the prize to 200 CLchips.
5. Entries close at the beginning of the Oscars ceremony on Sunday, 12 March 2022.

I haven't had time to watch a single one of the nominees this year. Super busy 😳

Based on trailers, "The Banshees of Inisherin" is my sleeper pick for this awards season. Good luck everyone!

I've only managed to see 2 movies from this years picks - Top Gun: Maverick (because....TOP GUN people!!) and Everything Everywhere All At Once (fell asleep 3/4 in), so it will be random guesses for me.

We have the same picks except for Best Picture where I'm hoping for an upset 😀

Betting odds are not in my favor though.

Sorry for interrupting the flow here, but I had to stop in and say hello. It has been SO long. All I really do is work and sleep anymore. And from this movie FANATIC, this is the second year in a row where I Haven't watched barely any of the movies, whereas I used to watch every single one. And it is even on my birthday this year! Makes me a little sad to be so disconnected, but I am going to try VERY hard next year to get back to it. I haven't even watched CODA yet, and it has been on my list for one year!

Mostly, I wanted to bop in and wish everyone the best of luck. I will try to stop in to see who the big winners are. I am surprised to see Everything Everywhere All At Once to be many people's choice, as tI think that is one of the few movies I have seen this year from the Best Picture list. I think it will be that or Banshee, but don't take my uninformed word for it.

I think I am going to watch the Luther movie tonight (celebrated my bday with my family yesterday) and catch clips from the awards tomorrow online. So to whoever watches tonight: ENJOY! 🙂

AND

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE! 🙂

Apparently there is a crisis management team on hand this year - so it will probably be a dull, no punching, no yelling kinda ceremony. But you never know!! See you on the red carpet folks!!

For a group of folks who haven't watched many (or any) of the films, we did alright with very educated (?) or wild (?) guesses Here's the tally:

adnanc - 4/12
mapika - 11/12!!!!
wildgerri - 2/12
barbadosslim93 - 7/12
cl-klaw - 9/12
blck - 7/12
matthew - 8/12
vomvom12 - 10/12
cl-ed - 6/12

A standing ovation to the very talented mapika for his almost spot on picks - only missing the Supporting Actress. Impressive! Enjoy your CLChips mapika!!

The highlight for me this year was KE HUY QUAN's acceptance speech and his reaction on stage with Harrison Ford - his little kid like excitement, jumping up and down and embracing Harrison Ford was just so lovely.

Well 6 out of 12 aint bad for my guesses, but hot damn 11 is very good. Congratulations mapika!

I am surprised that EEAAO won so many awards. It was an enjoyable movie but hardly the sort of thing that usually wins Oscars, and it wasn't like the actors put out a lesson in the dramatic arts. I guess it's the kind of movie that I would have picked as best film when I was 12. But hey, what do I know? Clearly not much! 😂
