Congrats to Becky for winning her second-ever GANW Oscar-Picking Contest 
(she previously won in 2003)!  She and Missy were neck and neck the whole 
night, but it came down to Best Picture, and Million Dollar Baby won it for 
Becky!  Thanks to EVERYONE who played, it was great fun for me to keep 
track of the race as the night went along, let's have a great turnout 
again next year, and now let's start thinking TRIVIA!!!!!!!!
