Just about everyone has an opinion on who should — and will — win the top prizes at the 84th Annual Academy Awards. Now you have a chance to turn your picks into something special — a year's pass to Sundance Cinemas in Bayou Place.
CultureMap has teamed with Sundance for our first Pick the Oscar Winners contest.
Here's how it works:
Click here to go to CultureMap's Facebook page and pick the winner in the Best Supporting Actress category, which is open for voting through Tuesday. Everyone who picks the winner in this category will be entered in a drawing, where the randomly selected Grand Prize champ will receive a year-long pass to Sundance Cinemas, along with 10 runners-up, who will each receive a pass to a movie at the downtown Houston cinema complex.
Octavia Spencer is such an odds-on favorite in this category for her star-making role in The Help that you can likely move on to the Grand Prize drawing by selecting her. But Oscar has the potential to surprise in this category, so you never know if Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) or Bérénice Bejo (The Artist) might score an upset. Others in the category include Jessica Chastain (The Help) and Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs).
There will be chances to vote in other major categories as well:
Best Actor — Feb. 8-12
Best Actress — Feb. 13-16
Best Director — Feb. 17-21
Best Picture — Feb. 22-26
