The 2009 DVD Talk Oscar Contest!

Welcome to the 2009 DVD Talk Oscar Contest!
(Thanks to defective yeti!)

The rules here are simple.

An edited post will be considered null and void. This poll closes as soon as the show begins at 5:30 PM PST, on Sunday, February 22nd.

This year's winner gets a stack of screeners, courtesy of yours truly.

The tie breaker is "Documentary Short", followed by "Live Action Short".

No kidding. Note that Mao is giving these away himself. I'm not sure DVDTalk has anything to do with it.

Besides, I'll be winning them, everyone else will be going away empty handed anyway.
