Bookish Oscars Quiz/Ballot – voting closed

The Oscars have come and gone but that doesn’t mean that we can’t do some voting of our own.  I want you to vote for who you think will win (who everyone else will be voting for!).  More same votes = more points.  You have until Sunday noon to submit your ‘ballot’.

Here’s how I tallied the votes. 11 points for answer, 9 points, for second, etc. No points if there was only one vote.

When you are heading to the ceremony, who would be the Best Arm Candy?
