Could be interested in this - but for every Oscar, or just the 'main' awards? Not too sure I'm 100% up on my sound editing and stuff..!

I reckon every oscar as its the sound editing and costume and documentary short (which really on pure guess work in most cases) which make it the most fun...and also settle any tie breakers!

Sounds great... I'm up for it, however we end up deciding to do it... I'll have a look at my collection later and see what I fancy punting.

How about meeting both suggestions above halfway... say around 10 main awards* and then counting the others in the event of a tie break so that someone cant walk off into the sunset by getting all the divvy ones right when he was convinced that Sideways was going to win best film, etc...

*film, director, 4 x acting, 2 x scripts, score... erm, that's 9... anyone got any other favourites?

Sounds good, could probably do animated film as well which will make it 10, and the rest are used as tie breaks or something! so that's 3 hopefuls so far......

I'd rather go for all of them. It's quite easy to go for the favourites in the main categories even without having seen the movie, but to be accurate in the minor categories requires a bit of skill.

I'd be up for this.

How about a points system, 2 points for each of the main (10?) categories & 1 for each of the others?

I'd do it, but I think it should be all categories and not just the 'main' ones. Not too gone on a points system per category, unless it was a deciding factor in the event of a tie perhaps.

You can print off your Oscar ballot here.
