An anti-capitalist corporate-sponsored advert? Everything about this really is awesome.

Tonight, it's the BAFTAs, which seems like the perfect time to launch this year's Oscar Nomnomnom Challenge. The aim of the game? Predict who will win the Academy Awards. The prize for getting the most right? Cupcakes. In short, submit your Oscar Nomnomnoms and get Oscar Nomnomnoms. Simple.

The rules are few: all you have to do is write down your guesses for all Oscar categories and send them to me by 23:59 on Saturday 1st March. You can tweet photographic proof of your written list using the official hashtag #OscarNomnomnom, or email the list to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Why announce it now? Why not something related to the British Academy of Film and TV Awards? Well, for one, it's too short notice - even with the two-hour delay on the ceremony because (for some reason) they don't show the awards live. For another, we've already thought of a hashtag. And for third, it's not easy just to think up a cake-related awards pun. What are we going to call it, a BAFTA Bake-Off? And have people compete to create British award-themed baked goods? And give out edible marzipan masks for the best? I'm drifting.

Anyway, Oscars. Noms. Get involved.

To give you a taste of what your tummy could win, here are last year's homemade nomtastic prizes, ranging from Baffleck's beard to Django's chains:
