The UB Libraries would like to thank all the participants in the 2015 Oscar Prediction Contest. After tallying up all the categories, we were surprised to find that no one predicted all eight correctly so no prizes were awarded. Just kidding! The 4 participants who got seven correct and the 2 participants (out of 18) who got six correct and won the drawing received the prizes ($25 AMC Theatres Gift Card).
The category that stumped people the most was the Best Animated Feature. Most people predicted How to Train Your Dragon 2 would be the winner instead of Big Hero 6 (the actual winner), both were great films and it probably could have gone either way.
The winners of the 2015 Oscar Prediction Contest:
Clarissa Toner – Pharmacy
John Morano – Communication
Grace Azzolino – Library Science
Connor Hannan – Psychology
Margaret Cerere – Communication
Once again, thank you to everyone who entered the contest and we hope to see you again next year!
