It came down once again to the final category of the night, and many people could have 
won.  But... big congrats to Becky for winning her second straight contest!  She was 
the only person to correctly pick "Crash" for Best Picture, giving her 500 big points 
and a big win!  Lynne was the only person to correctly answer the last question, by 
guessing that "Brokeback Mountain" would win 3 Oscars, which earned her 500 big points 
and a great 2nd place finish in her first-ever contest.  And Matt earns the title for 
most improvement--he finished in 20th place last year and zoomed up the charts to 3rd place!

Thanks to everyone who entered, I hope you enjoyed the contest, and now let's start 
thinking TRIVIA, Fast Eddie!!!!!!!!!!!
