JOHN SLAGLE GOES 14 FOR 14 TO WIN THE ACADEMY AWARDS PREDICTIONS FOR THE 3RD STRAIGHT YEAR  
     John Slagle predicted all 14 categories to finish with 77 points and beat Melissa Slagle by 12 points.  Amazingly, after picking the first 13  
categories correctly, he still needed+C35 to get best picture correct to win the predicts.  Amy Stockard would have won if Aviator won best picture.  The  
top 5 predictors were:  John Slagle 77, Melissa Slagle 65, Nikki Barber 61, Scott Van Camp 60 and Virginia Gaeta & Cindy Van Camp 58.  
John Slagle has won three years in a row.  Last year John picked 12 of 14 catergoies correctly.    
 
 
 
 
JOHN SLAGLE REPEATS AS ACADEMY AWARDS PREDICTION WINNER ON TIEBREAKER  
       John Slagle, Amy Stockard and Jerry Slagle all tied with 71 points in the Academy Awards Predictions.  John won the tie breaker with 9 predicted  
Academy Award Oscars for Lord of the Ring (it won 11 of 11 nominations!).  All three predictors set an all time scoring record and predicted 12 of 14  
categories correctly.  Nelson Slagle predicted a record (I predict it won't be broken or maybe even tied) 13 of 14 categories correct, but unfortunately missed  
one of the six major categories (Best Actor).  John, Amy and Jerry predicted all six major catergories correct but missed two minor categories.  
 
TWENTY-FIVE SUBMIT PREDICTIONS FOR 2004 ACADEMY AWARDS  
     A record 25 predictors entered the 2004 Academy Awards Prediction contest including 17 movie raters.  Around 20 of the 25 predictors picked  
the same person or movie to win the Oscar in the six major categories.  Specifically 19 picked Lord of the Rings for best picture, 15 piced Sean  
Penn for Best Actor, 20 picked Charlize Theron for best actress, 21 picked Tim Robbins for best supporting actor, 21 picked Renee Zellweger  
for best supporting actress and 17 picked Peter Jackson as best director.  Eight predictors picked all eight of those favorites thus the winner will  
likely be decided by the minor categories or the tie breaker.  Several other predictors have 5 of the 6 favorites thus would be tough to beat if their  
upset pick is correct.    
       Even many of the minor categories have concensus picks.  Twenty-three have Lord Of the Rings for best Visual Effects, 19 have Lost in   
Translation for best original screen play and 23 have Finding Nemo for best Animated Film.  
     Good luck and enjoy the Oscars!  
 
JOHN SLAGLE WINS 2003 OSCAR PREDICTS ON TIE BREAKER    
      John Slagle and Nelson Slagle both finished with 46 points but John won the tie breaker by guessing 6   
Oscars for Chicago.  Tammy Slagle finished 3rd for the 2nd straight year.  John and Nelson were tied  
for the lead all night long until Pianist won for Best Director to move Tammy into the lead.  John and Nelson  
won on Best Picture, Chicago as Tammy had Pianist. John and Nelson had the same picks on 12 of 14  
categories and both missed the two categories they didn't agree on.
