Another year, another Academy Awards bash! This seemed like a particularly big party, since there were several newcomers this time, which made everything even more fun. Based on the nominated movies this year, I thought I would be coming in last place, but somehow I actually came in first (with 16 correct picks), for the first time in nine years! Since I'm the host, I just took one fun prize (a ninja rubber duckie) and stepped down, which put Jonathan in first (as usual), Ian (live from New York) in second, and Ernesto and Ann Marie tied for third. Chris took the last place prize, but he was one of the big hits this year, since Chris and Shawn both came dressed as Brokeback Mountain cowboys (without knowing the other guy was doing the same thing!). This was also the first time I got to meet Sofia, Kristin & Carlos' new baby girl, and she was amazingly quiet during all our party craziness!
