Flag Counter
Hi guys. Today is the announcement of the biggest award show's nominations, it's Oscar announcements today! And I am also announcing my oscar contest will be held again this year! If you are interested in entering read through the rules below, if not just scroll down to see who is going for gold this year!

To enter in Kae's Oscar Contest, each person must:

1. Comment to this journal if you would like to join the contest, this will help me keep track who is entering.

2 Read through the list of nominees at the bottom of these instructions, and choose carefully on who you think will win. You have to chose in each category. If you look at the most prominent categories, they are worth more points than others, so try to make those count because they can be game changers!

3. Send me a note, titled "your DA User name's Oscar Picks", containing all of nominees you picked who you think will win in each category! If you change your mind on a nominee, just write to me and tell me which category and who you want to change your choice to.

Either send me a note or email me at to partake in the contest!

4. All notes must be sent in before the show on Sunday, February 28nd, so the deadline for your bets are on February 27th at midnight central time. So you have plenty of time to decide.

Once all of the winners are picked, the person with the most points, will win. The points of all of the categories will add up to 50, so that will be a perfect score if you are lucky.  Here are the prizes:

1. A free commission from yours truly!
2. Pick a character that will have a guarenteed spot in the 24th set of Dancing With the Gaming Stars.

(In case of a tie, the prizes will be divided in half, each of the two winners will have a small commission by me, and will each pick a character(one male and one female) to be in DWTGS24)

If you would like to help out and offer a prize, feel free!

Ai-Don Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2015  Student Filmographer
That is cool, I was born there because my dad was transferred there for business and we lived there for a little over a decade. I use to live near the airport. What school did you attend?
