    Default Rackham Confrontation Oscars Contest

    Why not ?

    Here's my idea...

    ************************************************** *******

    Choose the winner in each of the following categories:

    - Best Picture
    - Best Director
    - Best Actor
    - Best Actress
    - Best Supporting Actor
    - Best Supporting Actress
    - Best Foreign Language Film
    - Best Animated Film
    - Best Documentary ( Feature Length )
    - Best Visual Effects ( Have to include this one.....)

    That's 10 categories. One point for each correct answer. Highest point total wins.

    Reference info here: http://www.imdb.com/oscars/nominations/

    ************************************************** *********************

    First Prize: Choose 1 of 6 Box Sets ( NIB ) from 3 Classic Rackham and 3 Games Workshop

    Second Prize: Choose 1 of 6 Classic Rackham / Reaper Blisters ( NIB )

    Third Prize(s): One Random Miniature + 5 Empty "Vallejo Style" Dropper Bottles

    ************************************************** *********************
