Well, the 2014 Oscars are in the books and though the results were predictable the show was entertaining — I, personally, think it was a good idea to include full performances of all the nominated songs — and the winners deserving.
And the passes go to:
First place: Alex A. of Hollywood, who gets 20 passes;
Second place: Andre C. of Los Angeles, who gets 16 passes;
Third place: Kenneth O. of West Hollywood, who gets 12 passes.
Congratulations, guys, and happy moviegoing!
This year we had double the usual number of entries. No one guessed all 24 categories correctly but four missed only one category: one missed the Best Documentary Feature category and picked “The Act of Killing” instead of “20 Feet to Stardom.” The other three missed Best Animated Short and chose “Get a Horse!” instead of winner “Mr. Hublot.” The shorts categories are tricky!
Since there were four first place ties, the tie-breaking question decided the ultimate winner. The winner guessed 210 minutes — only four minutes off the actual Oscar Telecast running time!
There were only two major troublesome categories for patrons this year. Best Original Score winner Steven Price (“Gravity”) only received 30% of the vote while the other nominees equally split the rest. Best Animated Short was the other. Winner “Mr. Hublot” received only 20% of the vote. “Get a Horse!” was the favorite chosen by our patrons. The average number of correct answers was 13. Thanks to all who played.
