Mister Critic Awards Predictions and Contest

The Oscars are here and we’re all excited at Mister Critic. Lots going on.

Below are the predictions (in some cases, wild guesses) made by the Mister Critic contributors. We have predictions from yours truly, Mister Critic, his wife Ms. Critic, his 8 year old daughter Little Miss Critic, his 5 year old son Little Man Critic, Mister Parvenu, Mister Hand and the newest contributor Mister Minator.  I will be trying to update throughout the night the actual winner and which contributor was correct in his or her prediction.

Now the moment you’ve all been waiting for. Today you have a chance to win a Mister Critic T-shirt. All you have to do is post the correct answer to the following question on Mister Critic’s Facebook page before the end of the awards show tonight!

The question: Which Mister Critic contributor(s) had the highest number of correct predictions. Give both the name (or names, if there is a tie), and the number of predictions that person, or persons, got correct. The winner will be the first one to post the correct answer on Mister Critic’s Facebook page and will win a T-shirt from Mister Critic’s Cafe Press shop (a $17.00 value). And one guess per person. Remember the contest will close when the credits finish rolling on the awards show, so if no one posts the right answer by that time, no one wins. Sad face.
