Welcome to the 2017 edition of Predict the Oscars, where you can win a prize for guessing who will win this year's Academy Awards! After the show on February 26, players who predicted correctly will earn points, with the main categories being worth more points.

Whoever scores the most points overall will receive a $50 Amazon gift card via email. If multiple players tie for the top score, they will all receive the prize, up to a maximum of five (ordered by the time of their final changes to predictions). As always, Funeratic owner Scott Hardie has entered the contest for fun, but he cannot win.

Please log in or create an account to play.
