2013 KC Oscar Party Wrap Up

We have so many people to thank for the great turnout and all the fun we had at the 2013 KC Oscar Party last night.

First off, thanks to our co-sponsors Lost in Reviews for partnering with Scene-Stealers for the second straight awesome year and the Screenland Armour theater for having us. (Please check out the Screenland Armour’s Kickstarter page and help save their theater, which desperately needs a digital conversion.)

I also want to thank Allied Integrated Marketing, 43KixKansasCity, the Alamo Drafthouse, and AMC Theatres for all the wonderful prizes and giveaways — it was truly an embarrassment of riches.

Check out the pictures and tweets from the 2013 KC Oscar Party from the people who were there — as it happened last night:

Sounds like you guys had fun. Who ended up with the highest correct predictions? I wound up with 19/24 missing out on Original Screenplay, Live Action Short, Production Design, Best Supporting Actor and Animated Feature. I almost swapped animated feature and live action short to the eventual winners as well.

We only did 21 categories, removing the shorts since nobody has seen them. I ended up with 15/21, but our winner had 18/21 and was the only one with that high a score – no tiebreaker needed!
