See what I mean about it being a close contest?  Becky won this year, after finishing in 
the top three in the two previous years, by picking a nice 6 out of 10 Oscars, including 
4 which were worth more than 100 points.  Matt and Dennis were the only two to pick 
"The Pianist" for Adapted Screenplay, earning them 250 big points, and a 2nd place 
finish for Matt.  And Steve was the ONLY player to correctly pick Roman Polanski for 
Best Director, earning him the maximum 500 points and a nice 3rd place finish!

Thank you to EVERYONE who entered, it makes Oscar night even more enjoyable to keep 
score as the evening goes along.  The top three finishers will all be getting small 
movie-related prizes, including a selection from my massive popcorn collection, and 
some of my favorite candy--Raisinets!

Now let's get ready for TRIVIA 2003!!!
