RESULTS OF THE GANW IN-HOUSE OSCAR PICKING CONTEST!!!

Well, folks, it was a real nail-biter!  This was a very tough year for picking the Oscars—while 
last year’s winners picked 9 out of 10 correctly, this year’s winner only got 5 out of 10 right.  
It came down to the final award--Best Picture.  Four people had a chance to win, depending on which 
movie won that final Oscar... and the Oscar Picking Results are:

1.  Chris Hakala			5 correct / 1020 points
2.  Missy Joy				5 correct / 705 points
3.  Becky Ulland			3 correct / 660 points

4.  Laura Hakala			5 correct / 555 points
5.  Pam & Steve Jensen			4 correct / 410 points
6.  Matt Joy / Kari Tuskowski		4 correct / 385 points
7.  Don Shenbarger			2 correct / 310 points
8.  Aaron Ulland			3 correct / 285 points
9.  Bill & Julie Retza			2 correct / 160 points
10. Dennis Joy		    		1 correct / 60 points

Chris was the only person to correctly guess that “A Beautiful Mind” would tie for top Oscar-winner, 
with 4 Oscars, giving him a big 500 points that put him over the top.  Missy had solid picks right 
across the board, and she was the only contestant to correctly pick both screenwriting Oscars.  
Becky scored a big 500 points for being the only person to pick Denzel Washington for best actor.  

THANK YOU to everyone who entered the contest, I enjoy being a “mini-Oz” and running these little contests, 
and it certainly made my Oscar night more interesting!  The top three finishers will all receive scrumptious 
movie-related prizes.  Now...let’s get our motors running and get ready for Trivia 2002!
