Simesite Oscar winners

And the winner of the Simesite sweepstakes this year is… Paul Harris, who guessed 10 of the 12 categories correctly! How Paul manages to pull off this soothsaying each year is a deeply guarded secret. If his is not a gift from the gods, we’d love to know how much time he spent researching the list of nominees.

Anyway, a big Congratulations to Paul, who will be receiving a check in the mail for $1,000. That’s the good news. The bad news is that it is made out on an account in the Stanford bank in Antigua.

The one category that no one guessed correctly was the best foreign lingo film, which went to the Japanese “Departures”.

Runners up to Mike were Fred Lombardi and Frank Segers with nine correct guesses each. We shall draw a veil of silence over the remainder of us who limped along well outside the glorious limelight.
