It's that time of year again. Just like last year I created a pool at www.funofficepools.com (last year I shopped around and that clunky site was the best. It's entirely possible there's something better now. If we all had SBNation issued iPhones there's a pretty sweet app...)
Sign up and join pool name: Red Reporter 2010, password: aroldis. It will really make it easier for people to follow along if your pickset name is somewhat similar to your RR handle.
I put a weighted point system on the categories. Best Picture, Director, the acting and screenplay categories are all worth 3 points, everything else is 2 points, except the shorts, documentary and foreign films categories which are 1 point (I figured everyone has the least familiarity with those). If you think we should change these weightings speak up before the ceremonies start. Picks need to be in by 8pm tonight.
Like last year I will send a collection of pirated Academy screener DVDs of select nominated films to the winner.
