Local Oscar Contest

Sorry, folks. You had to be perfect to win our Oscar Contest.

With the favorites winning Sunday night, you needed to correctly predict the winners in all 11 categories correct plus our tiebreaker question (Which movie would win more awards, ?American Hustle? or ?Gravity??)

We had six entries that were perfect, so we had to draw the three winning names out of a hat. Sorry, Marie Frederick of Kenosha, Heather Sczygielski of Zion, Ill., and Neil Linden of Hoboken, N.J. You were all perfect in predicting the Oscars, but lost our random drawing. Better luck next time.

This year?s winners, all of Kenosha, are:

  • Elizabeth Jacob will receive 12 pairs of movie passes at Kenosha?s Tinseltown Theater, plus a year of NewsPerks and a pair of Kenosha News comics umbrellas.
  • Peter Krystowiak took second place, winning 12 movie passes, six months of NewsPerks and a Kenosha News comics umbrella.
  • In third place is Karyi Rutchik. She wins six movie passes, three months of NewsPerks and a Kenosha News comics umbrella.
  • We had 139 entries this year; 70 people entered online and another 69 sent in ballots/emails.

  • Herb Kohl announced Wednesday the sale of the Milwaukee Bucks to a pair of New York hedgefund billionaires. As everyone knows, the NBA team is in need of a new arena. Kohl promised $100 million and the new owners will give $100 million as well. Who should cover the rest?
    The new owners and investors should cover the cost.
    The city and taxpayers should split the cost.
    The Bucks don't need a new stadium.
    Who cares? The team should look for a new home elsewhere.
