As actors, directors and musicians prepare their acceptance speeches for next weekend’s Academy Awards, you can come up with one of your own.
Do you think you know who will leave with the little gold statues this year?
If you can guess the Academy’s favorites for 2011, you will be entered for a chance to win four tickets to the Red Wing Cinema 8.
Don’t worry, we’ll only ask you to make your selections from the top categories: best picture, actor/actress in a leading role, actor/actress in a supporting role, animated feature film, directing and music.
We’ll enter everyone who guesses correctly in a drawing for those four tickets.
So hit the theaters or video rental stores, take a few days to brush up on the Oscar nominees, then get back to us by Feb. 24 with your predictions. Then tune in to ABC at 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 26 to see if you guessed right.
