Site Lets Players Pick Fantasy Oscar Winners

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Fantasy leagues are nothing new for sports fans but now show biz buffs have the same opportunity thanks to a new website.

It’s called, and it allows movie buffs to cast Oscar votes, predict winners and guess which celebs will give the longest and shortest speeches of the night.

Each category is assigned a point value. For example, a correct “Best Picture” prediction earns three points while a correct “Best Supporting Actor” pick gets one point – and winners receive iPods and DVD box sets.

Creator Breht Burri says players can switch actors as many times as they want up until the show airs on February 25.

But unlike fantasy sports teams, film fans can’t draft or trade actors with each other.
