2014 Oscar contest
When Oscar season rolls around each year, Gazette columnist and movie aficionado Sara Foss makes a sport of out guessing the winners. She's also not shy about telling us who ought to win but probably won't.
We're challenging our readers to beat Sara at her own game. Make your predictions either here online.
There is a prize: Two tickets to the movies and $100 in spending money.
The winner will be selected at random from entries with the most correct answers. Gazette employees and their relatives aren't eligible to win. You must be at least 18 to participate. You also must live in our coverage area, which is Schenectady, Saratoga, Fulton, Montgomery, Schoharie, Albany and Rensselaer counties.
The deadline for entering is Friday, Feb. 28 at midnight. Sara will reveal her choices March 1. The Academy Awards will be broadcast March 2.
