The 2013 Make-Yer-Own Oscar Pool

The 2012 Make-Yer-Own Oscar Pool Page is live. Per tradition there has been exactly zero user testing, so let me know if you encounter bugs, typos, or miscellaneous weirdness.


  1. I’ve had my poll live for 45-60 minutes. I sent myself edit info, submitted a poll, and had some friends say they submitted, but I’ve received nothing.

    Is there simply a delay, or a problem?

  2. Thanks for doing this every year! It makes the Awards show more fun, and it has lead me to read the rest of your blog as well…

    Bug report: This morning I have asked my wife to try and also I have tried sending a test ballot from my pool page (8200) and did not get any results back in my inbox after a couple of hours…

  3. No emails come from the site for me, either! I love the pool. Thank you.

  4. Hi and thanks for putting this up every year. I too am a multi-year user that coordinates a pool for friends & family. No bugs are evident and my test email worked beautifully!

  5. Quick update: this is FLYING now. Whereas before I was waiting 12-24 hours for pools, I’ve been getting them in less than 5 minutes now.

    Great work. Thanks again for offering this.

  6. Thanks so much for doing this. I have used this for years—and am so grateful.

  7. hello… thanks so much for doing this. We use it for our company oscar pool every year. I filled out the form about a half hour ago and haven’t received any emails yet when I sent a test. Is it not working or is there just a delay?

  8. It’s not working again…

  9. Hi! I really appreciated this last year. Are you planning on doing this again?
