  1. The rule of no repeated movies is really hurting your best picture prediction.

  2. .

    I know. Should've gone with 127 Hours. I had it down to those two.

    If I counted right, though, I got 16 points which is the best I think I've ever done.

    Of course, usually I fill it out in October which is much harder.....
