The Oscar Nomnomnom Challenge!

Who successfully predicted the most Oscars? Here are the winners of this year's Oscar Nomnomnom cupcakes...

Colin the Puppet Reviews The Muppets

In an exclusive interview, Hollywood's leading puppet actor speaks for the first time about not being in The Muppets.

Review: A Dangerous Method

Needs more spanking.

Review: The Muppets

Sensational, inspirational, celebrational and Muppetational.

Review: The Woman in Black

The Pants in Brown, more like.

Interview: James Watkins

The director of The Woman in Black and Eden Lake sits down and chats with us about horror, Daniel Radcliffe and 3D.

Martha Marcy May Marlene

Terrifying and beautiful, this might well be the best film of 2012.

Woody Allen Top Trumps

We finish off our Woody Allen retrospective with your own print-off-and-keep Top Trumps game.

Review: Chronicle

The most interesting and original take on superheroes since Unbreakable or The Incredibles

Review: Young Adult

It's arrested development - and Theron is one hell of an MRF.

Review: Carnage

Caustic, claustrophobic and ridiculously comical, Carnage is one of the best comedies you'll see this year.

Tinker Tailor Whack-a-Mole

There's a mole at the top of The Circus. Can you bash its face in?

Oscar Nomnomnom Challenge 2012

And there you have it. Another year's Oscars out of the way, with little to stick in the memory other than Bret McKenzie's red carpet pose, Angelina Jolie's legs and Sacha Baron Cohen spilling Kim Jong Il's ashes over Ryan Seacrest.

But while people moan about the dull ceremony, predictable winners and the fact that the Oscars don't mean anything anyway, we all know otherwise. Because for all their glitz and shallow self-congratulating pomp, the Academy Awards stand for something far more serious: cupcakes. 

Who predicted the most awards correctly? Who will get to munch on Meryl's blue frosting? Who will feast upon The Tree of Life-shaped fondant? 

Here, in reverse order, are the results of this year's Oscar Nomnomnom Challenge...


Matthew Reynolds (predictions)



Arnold Stone (predictions)



Selina Pearson (predictions)



Andrew Jones (predictions)



Chris Blohm (predictions)



Ivan Radford (predictions)



Seph Bradfield (predictions)



Joe Cunningham (predictions)



Congratulations to Master Cunningham! Pick as many cupcakes as you like from our exclusive, home-made, just-about-edible Oscar Nomnomnom selection:



Oscar cupcakes




Because Joe's entry involved a late submission of two additional categories, I would like to extend consolation cupcakes to the runners up. Seph, choose some cupcakes too.

And that's that settled. Huzzah.


Because Seph's entry was also past the deadline and Ivan's also included a last-minute correction (albeit within the deadline), Chris Blohm is technically our official runner up. So Master Blohm, by default, you get to pick some cupcakes as well. (The two sweetest words in the English language. De-fault.)


There. Now EVERYONE'S a winner. Huzzah. Send me your delivery addresses and credit card pin numbers immediately to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .


Incidentally, if anyone has any ideas on how to send cupcakes through the post, now would be a good time to speak up...
