Then go to your predictions page here or click on “Predictions” at the right hand side of the menu bar on the top of every page:

Once you’ve landed on “My Predictions” page, click the award show you want to predict:

Notice how the award shows that you have yet to predict are in blue and the ones you have done already are in green. 

After you click “Academy Awards” scroll down the page to the category boxes.

Press “Click here” within the box for Best Picture, for example, and a new box will pop up for you to make your predictions in that race.

One by one, grab the nominees from the left column and drag them to the right column, arranging them by likelihood of winning.

Once you’ve done that, place your bet using the drop-down meun in the top left corner. You can choose to wager 100, 200 or 500 points. If you are right, that wager will pay off as per the racetrack odds for that nominee. 

Then click “Save Predictions” and move on to the other 23 categories. Change your predix as often as you like until 3 pm PT/6 pm ET on Oscar Sunday (Feb. 22) 

Score the highest percentage AND get the highest point score and you win $1,000 and earn a place on our Leaderboard of Champions

Last year, 23 of our Users scored 96% but Jorden won because he had the highest points score as he made strategic use of his two Big Bets of 200 points and one Super Bet of 500 points.
