AND THE RAISINETS GO TO... South Carolina cyber-Ninja Mike M. for prevailing in a 
VERY close competition that was only decided in the last few categories.  
Longtime Ninja Julie S. edged out Becky U. for second place by only five points 
(Becky was the only person to correctly pick The King's Speech with 4 Oscars).  
There were seven "big pointers" worth 100 points or more in this year's contest, 
despite the general consensus that there were not too many surprise winners.  Well done
and MANY thanks to EVERYONE that sent in their picks--I always enjoy running this 
contest and it gets me going for a last burst of movie note-taking!  The top three 
finishers, as always, will be receiving delicious and (relatively) healthy 
Raisinets as their prize!  
And now it's time to PLAY TRIVIA, FAST EDDIE!  Keep in touch and you'll be 
hearing from me!
