Booby Prize (tie, ineligible)

Click on a name to view a contestant's ballot.

Names denoted by [brackets] left some categories blank and are therefore ineligible for the last-place Booby Prize.

Computer Average is a computer-generated contestant created by Tom's OscarCalc program. It represents the mode average of the ballots entered by the human contestants -- the nominees selected the most often. Computer Average tries to attain the highest possible score, and has done so in past contests.

Computer Booby is a second computer-generated contestant. It represents the inverse mode average of the human contestants -- the nominees selected the least often. In this way, it tries to win the last-place Booby Prize.

Computer Random is a third computer-generated contestant. It enters a ballot by randomly choosing a nominee in each Oscar category. In other words, it fills out its ballot much as some human contestants do.
