Every year, millions of people around the world make a game out of predicting the winners of the Academy Awards. Sometimes, there’s even an office pool, with hundreds of dollars going to the winner.
Of course, many fewer of us have actually seen all the nominated films. Do you ever wonder if seeing the films gives Oscar-predictors an advantage? Now’s your chance to find out. This week, we’re collecting Oscar predictions, and also asking predictors to indicate how many of the movies they’ve seen. Next week, we’ll let you know if seeing the movies actually helps people more accurately predict the winners.
This survey will close at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time on Sunday, March 5, in time for you to catch Jon Stewart’s opening monologue (or when we have 250 participants, whichever comes first).
