Oscar Confidence Pool 18/19 & RED CARPET TRIVIA and SCREENING at The Rec Room!

February 11, 2019

We watch movies because we love the art, we're entertained by those who are damn good at their jobs, and we watch the Oscars because we either love even the air of competition or we just love the spectacle of award shows. With the Academy Awards, it's time for the latest Oscar Confidence Pool!

What is an Oscar Confidence Pool, you might ask? It's simple enough.

  1. Picks are made in the usual manner, and then...
  2. Those picks are ranked from 24 (most confident) to 1 (least confident). 
  3. The highest possible score is a wonderfully round 300 points.
The winner is the person with the most POINTS, with the number of correct picks breaking any ties. Remember, the number you write beside a category are the points you'll get if your selected winner actually wins!

This is our SEVENTH ANNUAL Oscar Pool, and the fifth Oscar Confidence Pool! Saad K. was our first Oscar Pool victor in 2012/2013 with 17 correct picks! Matthew S. won the first Oscar Confidence Pool in 2013/2014 with a still unmatched 22 correct picks for 290 points! In 2014/2015 it was Oliver D. who won our third Pool with 20 correct picks for 270 points! In 2015/2016 the Oscar Confidence Pool was won by Mark P. with 18 correct picks for 257 points, and then Mark P. because our first Oscar Confidence Pool repeat winner in 2016/2017 with 17 correct picks for 242 points! Our reigning Oscar Confidence Pool winner is Rob M. who guessed fewer correct picks with 18, then the runner-up, but ultimately scored more points for the win with 275 points!

As well as an individual award, we will be awarding the TEAM with the most points! When you submit your ballot you can submit under a specific team name as well, and the TOP FIVE scores for that team will be averaged! You can also simply submit a team ballot. Trivia Club is, after all a group affair, so it seemed only fitting.

We are also proud to announce the RETURN of the RED CARPET TRIVIA CLUB at The Rec Room! On SUNDAY before the 91st Academy Awards on FEBRUARY 24th, we will be hosting a Red Carpet evening of Trivia which will test you on this year's slate of nominees, the movies they are in, not to mention the Oscars themselves and maybe even a little fashion! You'll also be able to fill out Oscar Ballots before the evening begins, play Oscar Bingo during the night, and Russel Harder will host a SCREENING of the Oscars on the big screen of The Hall!

Enjoy the Oscars, watch it with your friends, play along, and win prizes!

Ballots can be submitted electronically or in person, at our Trivia Club live events where we will also have paper ballots to fill out! You can also download the PDF provided below. Best of luck, and may your confidence be the award winning key!
