After adding up, the worst possible score I could’ve gotten was 121, and the best was 25. My score was…58. 9 out of the 25 categories were predicted accurately.

Considering last year’s score was 42, this means I did worse than last year.

Ah well, I’m glad that out of all of them, Rango won best animated feature, Hugo one a good set in it’s design and sound and that I should watch more live action films sometimes.
