For the third year in a row, I won my colleague's Oscar pool. This time was particularly satisfying. Last year the competition was divided in two for the first time: one winner crowned for the most accurate picks of the major awards, and one named separately for all categories. I won the overall title but performed rather poorly on the big winners. This year I rebounded with a nine-for-nine showing in the major categories as well as an overall 19 of 24, thereby taking home both titles. I want a plaque. ^_^
Oh, the other reason it was particularly satisfying, if only in my own mixed-up head?
