It's Back! The 2007 DVD Talk Oscar Contest!

We had a lot of fun last year and I thought we'd do it again this year!

We have a private group set up at Oscar.com again this year. Only serious players need apply!

The group is "DVD Talk" and the password is "Gold".

The Grand Prize this year includes a batch of new and old DVD screeners and some other DVD surprises!

This year's tie-breaker is whomever correctly predicts the "Best Live Action Short Film" (followed by "Best Documentary Short Subject").

Note: Please join with your screen name from DVD Talk!!!!!!

Come on in! Have a great Oscar Sunday, February 25th!

I was co-winner last year, so might as well defend my co-title. Bring it.

I uploaded my preliminary predictions although I'm not familiar with any of the shorts listed.

I'm in. I just chose randomly for the shorts, like most will do, i think.

i also, reluctantly, put Little Miss Sunshine as the Best Pic winner. I don't think it's the best film by any means, but i have this gut feeling...

I'll say this, the acting choices are easier to pick this year than those technical categories. Plus, picture is really between only 3 films.

The hardest ones to choose between were the two sound categories.

Fun Fun. I won an Oscar contest once, but that was the year everyone was sure The Aviator was going to take home the big prize. God Bless Clint Eastwood!
