It costs nothing to enter, and the winner will get a 50/50 split of my profits on this website for the coming year. The entry is a simple click-box format, and you can get a copy of your picks emailed to you, so it's a pretty simple way to make and memorialize your 2008 Oscar picks. I'll keep your selections confidential, if you prefer.

How many times is it permissible to start a sentence with "Wow" in a three sentence comment? I would have said one, but if it isn't one I think you should probably just go ahead and do three.
