The 2nd Annual Oscar Contest!

oscar 2013Welcome to the 2nd Annual Death To Hollywood Oscar Contest! As you know, this coming Sunday is the biggest night of the year in Hollywood and possibly the world, considering our entertainment-obsessed public. I love the Oscars and can’t wait to make fun of everyone on the red carpet. I also love the awkward questions they ask celebrities on the red carpet like, “Daniel Day Lewis, what did you do this morning?” and the celebrities always say something like “Uhhh,  not much, I got ready for the show tonight.” And the announcers say,  “Well, you look great, good luck tonight.” Wouldn’t it be better if Daniel Day Lewis said something like, “You know, even though I’ve won this award twice already, I still get so nervous…I had diarrhea all morning.” I would just appreciate a little more honesty, that’s all.

Now on to the contest!

The prize is going to be a Hollywood/Oscar related prize package that will be a surprise and of course, I’ll throw in a bag of Celestial Treats, so get excited! I will post what the prize is once the winner is chosen.

Here are the rules:

Each day there will be two Oscar-related questions. Post your answers in the comment section. Each comment is an entry into the giveaway. At the end of the week a winner will be chosen at random. The contest will conclude on Saturday 2/23. You get extra entries for posting Death to Hollywood on Facebook or Twitter, and “liking” the Death to Hollywood page on Facebook.

1. You have to be at least 18 years old to enter (that’s for legal reasons)

2. You have to live in the United States because I don’t ship internationally, sorry.

3. You have to answer two Oscar related questions as a comment on the blog.

4. It doesn’t matter if you’ve seen any of the nominated movies.

5. No purchase necessary (not that there’s anything to buy… legally I have to say it)

Is that simple enough for you?


1. Who is your Oscar prediction for Best Director? 

(Amour – Michael Haneke, Beasts of the Southern Wild – Benh Zeitlin, Life of Pi – Ang Lee, Lincoln – Steven Spielberg, Silver Linings Playbook – David O. Russell)

(Looks like Ben Affleck got snubbed for Argo…oops, sorry Ben)

2. Steven Spielberg has been nominated many times for Best Director and has won three times. Why am I the only one who didn’t love the movie, E.T.?  And what was it about E.T. that everyone thought was so stinkin’ great? 


Riding a bike through the sky with an alien in the basket? I guess….

Be sure to comment and have a great Monday!

About Death To Hollywood

My name is Celeste Donohue and I am a writer/comedian who started this blog to tell stories about my life growing up in a funeral home and my adult life which I have spent in Hollywood, California – hence the name, “Death To Hollywood”. Hopefully, you like to read those kinds of stories. If not, go read something serious and boring.....

    1 – Silver Linings Playbook – David O. Russell
    2- I also am not an ET fan – I think it is a creepy movie so I can’t tell you why people like it let alone love it!

  2. mary donohue says:

    I’ll say Spielberg,because Lincolnwas great,and the details were amazing.Mom

  3. Theresa says:

    I didn’t see Lincoln because DDL didn’t look hot in it. But I’m going to guess Spielberg wins.

  4. Kris says:

    1. David O’Russell for Silver Linings……well done movie! What happened to Ben Affleck?

    2. I’m with you about ET…..the alien was cute, I’m just not into movies about aliens and stuff like that!

  5. George Monkey says:

    1. Spielberg – Last time they denied him as best director, we suffered through 25 years of Oprah. Men, don’t let it happen again.

    2. E.T.’s greatest contribution was the increased distribution of Reese’s Pieces. Before that, the product was at Mr. Pibb or Boo Berry levels.

  6. Kal says:

    1. The Irish voting block of the academy will band together to give the award to “David O’Russell”.

    2. Possibly because this supposedly advanced alien can’t master simple personal pronouns, and consistently refers to himself in the third person? Get it together, dude! Even a two-year-old knows the word “I”….

  7. Rachael H. says:

    1. I’m going with Ang Lee because no one else is giving him any love here 🙂
    2. I also have no idea – saw it once and never watched it again!

  8. AnnaZed says:

    1. Since they are shanking Ben Affleck; they will give it to the gag-inducing David O’Russell
    2. I don’t know why YOU don’t like ET, maybe it’s the smug, affluent, entitled yet stifling portrait of suburban American childhood depicted in the film that cloys?

  9. AnnaZed says:

    Just a note: Ben (whi is never wrong because he does it by the numbers, all math, all science) has Ang Lee as the Best Director winner: Can I change my vote?

  10. Paul J. says:

    Steven Spielberg will win best director for Lincoln, because two actors will win Oscars for their performances (Daniel Day Lewis & Tommy Lee Jones).

    E.T. still gives me goosebumps when the bikes fly over the government agents, a moment engineered by guess-who.

  11. Nicole Vosburgh says:

    1. I’m gonna say Steven Spielberg for Lincoln simply because he is good at what he does.

    2. I remember watching ET once or twice when I was super young, but I couldn’t tell you a thing more about it. I guess I’m too young for this one 😉

  12. Y says:

    1. Ang Lee must be related to me.
    2. You didn’t like it because in a way, it had a sad ending (it went hoooome). Others liked it because it implied childhood innocence.

  13. rachel travis says:

    1. I say Lincoln – Steven Spielberg
    2. You’re not the only one… 😉
