Jeff Bayer’s Oscar Picks for the 83rd Annual Academy Awards

Bowl a perfect Oscar game. Try to nail 300 points on the 2011 Academy Awards. Please keep in mind, this is only for those who are bored by Oscar pools where you pick the big eight categories.

Now you can say things like … “Once, in 2013, I got a 297 Oscar score.” Or, “I know a guy who once hit 300 back in 2016.” Yeah, you’ll be saying these things. Trust me.

Of course, this only works while they keep the categories at 24.

Well, this might confuse you as well – this is a confidence list.
Again, there are 24 categories. That means my most confident pick will receive 24 points. My least confident will receive 1 point.

So, grab all of the nominations, you can find them here … 83rd Annual Academy Award Nominations.

Then when you are sure you are ready for the most daunting task ever asked of you for the Oscars (unless you’ve been nominated), decide what order your confidence list should be.

It’s not too late to vote — 9th Annual TSR Movie Awards

Again, just to clarify, I am most confident with Supporting Actor, so I am giving that 24 points. I am least confident with Documentary Short, so I am only giving that 1 point.
