My 3rd Annual Online Oscar Party!

Ok, kids, here's how it works. Below are listed Academy Award nominees. Mostly, they're are the major Academy Awards, but I added a few more to make it interesting and to make the math easier for me (ie. howevermany out of 10). Your job is to pick who you think will win, submit it to me via pennykarma at gmail by Noonish, Central Time on Sunday the 24th, and whomever gets the most correct will win a semi-fabulous prize.

And, because I know there are non-knitters among My Vast Readership (although I prefer to think of you as "not yet knitters"), I promise it will be a prize that can be appreciated by knitters and non-knitters alike.

Additionally, on Oscar Night, please submit a picture of yourself in your Red Carpet Finery, and I'll post them on my blog the next day, along with my Celebrity Red Carpet Snark that you all love so much. I won't make fun of you if you're brave enough to send me a picture. I'm actually quite nonconfrontational. I only bash the celebs because I know they probably won't call me out. Seriously, I'm a total pussy.

Anyway, best of luck to all, and don't forget to watch the Oscars on Sunday!!!
