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!!!!!!!!!!!
