I assume there's only one thing on Red Reporters' minds this time of year: will Melissa Leo's campaigning cost her Best Supporting actress? That's right, it's time to get our gamble on, pour ourselves a cosmo or berrytini and dish, dish dish! I established our annual Oscar pool at the site www.funofficepools.com. Details after the jump.
Go to funofficepools to sign up. I think we used this site last year so some of you may have a username saved. Registration is free and requires an email address. Join a pool--pool name: "Red Reporter Oscar Pool 2011" password: votto. It's not the most elegant interface but anyone who's managed a fantasy team should be able to find their way around.
Picks are due at 8pm. The big categories are worth more. I tweaked the scoring a little, but didn't put much thought into it. If anyone has any opinions we can change it before the ceremony. As usual the winner will receive a selection of quasi-legal Oscar nominated DVDs courtesy of yours truly.
