Well, folks, I had record turnout for this year’s Oscar contest: 26 entries!  23 of them came 
in during the last two days before the big show, so that was exciting.  I had so many 
entries it’s taken me a little longer than usual to tabulate the results, but I am finally 
done.  First, the Oscar winners, and the point values for each category (500 points 
divided by the number of people who made the correct pick).

Yes folks, it was an extremely close contest, right up until the very last question, 
when Cyber Ninja Lynne S. scored a big 170 points for picking No Country to win 4 Oscars, 
making her the Oscar picking champion!  Way to go!  Joann S. led for most of the night, 
and last year’s third-place finisher Deb C. made a strong charge at the end to finish 
in a tie for third place with yours truly.  It was a very exciting and close finish!  
My thanks to EVERYONE who entered; we had people from all over the country and an age 
range of about 60 years (at least), so it was truly an example of GANW’s diverse makeup.  
Raisinets will be going out to the top three finishers (well, I already ate mine)!
