  1. Okay, challenge accepted! I do the prediction game every year with my family and friends, but this year your predictions will be added to the mix! I’ll be explaining the scoring system and rules on my blog next month, and the prize is a (close-ish) replica Oscar that doesn’t actually leave my windowsill though you are awarded bragging rights!
