Online Oscar pool?

The past couple of years Yahoo provided a free online Oscar pool, but I don't see one listed now (I may be jumping the gun a bit). Does anyone know if they are planning on doing it again this year? Also, does anyone know of any other sites that provide one? Thanks.

I recall doing the Yahoo Pick'Em in the DVDTalk league last year. Hopefully they'll have one for this year as well.

We at DVDTalk should form some sort of pool.

I'm in, should we pick for who we want to win or who we think should win?
Also, for the dvdtalk chat, is that for the pregame only or does that go all the way.

If we had to choose just one, it should be who we think WILL win. But if not, we can do them separately.

For any one interested (and to answer my own question), Yahoo's online Oscar pool is now up.

I joined the group. Why does Makeup have only two nominees? Disney should have done "For Your Consideration" on The Santa Clause 2 for that.

How to join:

Click here: http://moviegames.yahoo.com/

Click the link that says: "Join a Private Group"

If you don't already have a Yahoo ID, you'll need to create one to participate.

I tried that and I get "Not correct password. Please try again."

I changed the password to "dvdtalk" to make things easier. Try that if the old password wasn't working for you.

Just posted my picks to the group. I just guess on a lot of these since it's always hard to predict the academy voters tastes from one year to the next. Some of my votes are based on how I think the academy will reward old actors like Paul Newman instead of giving the award to Chris Cooper. Or like giving Nicole Kidman an Oscar because she didn't win last year.
