Today I won a 3 month movie subscription to Mubi.com. They are the independent movie website that hosted the "Beat Roger Ebert's predictions Academy Award contest". I got 20 out of 24 categories right. Roger got 13. C'mon Rodge! No one got all 24...which would have gotten you a $100,000 grand prize. The cash equivalent of my movie prize is 36 bucks.
So that makes my 2011 earnings $6,012.00
The funny thing is, I didn't see most of the movies. In fact, I only saw three of them. I'm not proud of that fact. But now topping my list are the King's Speech & Winter's Bone...and more than mayyyyybe Toy Story 3 (again, not proud of that fact). While the contest voting was going on, they posted how the other entrants were voting...so I just voted with the majority. A very lemming move on my part.
The Oscars were kind of a hot mess. James Franco was on drugs and Anne Hathaway is like just not funny.
People who would have been better hosts
Neil Patrick Harris
