I'm locked out and I want to change my predictions. I can join again with a different nick (DrRingDing2) with the understanding and agreement that my first selections are considered invalid. Is that okay?

I've put in every password I've used in the past 5 years for anything and none of them is working...

It has a forget your password thing, but then it asked me for my birth date. When I registered, I would've put in my real birthday, but I frankly don't remember ever putting my birthday in. I did put in my real birthday and it didn't match up. I don't know where I went wrong, if I went wrong. *shrug*

I'll register as DrRingDing2, please disregard "DrRingDing"

How the fuck do I make my selections? When I click on my predictions all it says is "This game is now locked and you can not make/edit any predictions." but the How To Play page clearly says you can make/edit picks up until 8pm EST.

I do know that the group DVD Talk is now closed.

Since I can't leave the group now, please start a new private group called "DVD Talk2" with a password of "Gold".

I was unaware that the groups were limited to 50.

Please post here if you are able to start or join the new group!

Good luck, everyone!

I was #50 as well, but left the group when I figured out it was too late to make my picks.

Yeah, I made all my picks yesterday, but I was going to go back and change some of them this morning and it was apparently too late.

It's now 26 straight years that the Picture winner has been nominated for Editing. That's why Little Miss Sunshine had no chance of winning.

Congrats to the best film of 2006.
