Did you watch the Oscar awards on Sunday? The whole show? And you managed to stay awake?! AMAZING!! You deserve an award. But too bad! There’s only one award that we’re handing out today… the award for the 3RD ANNUAL COCKY & RUDE OSCAR CONTEST! This year’s winner correctly predicted 20 of the 24 Academy Award categories. AND NOW … without further ado … the winner is: MR. SOMBRERO! Yippee! Hurray! Woohoo!!! Congratulations! It’s so nice that a lurker didn’t win the big prize this year! Ha! Now before you claim that I cheated and let Mr. Sombrero win the contest, let’s take a look at the results.
Here’s a chart of final scores:
And now, some fun observations! An impressive 100% of the Oscar predictors correctly chose Daniel Day-Lewis as Best Actor.
95.5% of the Oscar predictors correctly chose Anne Hathaway as Best Supporting Actress. The only contestant that incorrectly chose Sally Field as Best Supporting Actress was none other than Polt (who tied for the least correct Oscar predictions). Lolz what a dummy!
Each year we invite the contest participants to predict the Best and Worst Dressed Academy Award celebrity attendee. Since these categories are subjective, they do not count towards final scores. Here are the results for the Best Dressed category:
And the results for Worst Dressed:
That wraps up the results of this year’s Oscar Contest. Thanks to everyone who participated! Congratulations again to Mr. Sombrero! You’ll soon be in possession of a 8 packs of candy and a Blu-Ray copy of The Last Airbender. Hopefully this will not impact his BC&RL results!
So what did you think of this year’s Oscar Awards? Any surprises? Who really was best & worst dressed of the night? Comment quickly before the Jaws theme plays you off!
There’s not much that can distract me from Julia Roberts‘ giant mouth. One thing that can? Lily Collins‘ giant eyebrows in Mirror, Mirror.
I hate when people write the word that you’re trying to guess in Draw Something!!
And why the hell does it take so long for my Android Phone to load Draw Something? And why can’t I have the flashy loading screen that iPhone users get to see?
People at work that don’t know how to do their own job, and expect me to cover for them.
Movies like Tower Heist that pretend to be comedies. I DIDN’T LAUGH ONCE.
When I’m in a store and I can’t figure out how much something costs. Label the damn shelf!
Gas is so expensive! Grumble, grumble, grumble!!
People who don’t recycle!
Other things that bug me: People who throw trash on the floor of public restrooms, the fact that no matter how much I diet and exercise I can’t seem to lose any weight, I didn’t create (and then sell) Instagram, and people who won’t buy the stuff I’m selling on eBay.
Nadia from Bitchin’ Kitchen. Why does she have to talk like that? That exaggerated accent is ridiculous.
The guy from the Beastie Boys. That whiny thing he does with his voice is like nails on a chalkboard.
People who practically come to a stop before going over a speed bump.
Recaps of shows on the show itself. I don’t need a review of what I’ve already seen when we get back from the commercial break. I’m looking at you House Hunters.
People who don’t say thank you when I open the door for them. Maybe next time this happens I’ll scream, “YOU’RE WELCOME!!!” at them.
Contestants who hold their signal device incorrectly on Jeopardy (behind their backs, with crossed arms, pushing their button with their index fingers). They should all take lessons from my favorite Jeopardy contestant of all time: Ty Cone.
That weird model pose.
And the bleached eyebrows. Enough already.
Debra Messing‘s character on Smash. There is nothing sympathetic about her to me. She is unpleasant and whiny and she cheated on her husband. Am I supposed to root for her? Yuck. I hope she falls down an elevator shaft.
WordPress. It hides half my comment (if it even lets me make one). And that’s if I can even log in. Will I be Michelle M. or melliots? Who knows?!
Why can’t I just buy a six pack of soda at the grocery store? I wanted to but some Hansen’s mandarin lime soda to add in with my beloved Berenger’s zinfandel, but all I could find was cases of the stuff. I don’t need that much soda! I am on a diet!!
Other things that bug me: ads before YouTube videos, accidentally deleting my post and buying the wrong kind (sugar free) of Fudgsicles.
So what’s been getting your dander up? Le me know in comments.

Welcome to Cocky & Rude Fight Club: ROUND THREE! The rules to the game are simple. Each week we’ll re-introduce our fighters. We’ll give them each a chance to speak their mind. Then we’ll put the results to vote. You’ll pick which combatant will decimate their opponent in the knock-down, drag-out brawl of Cocky & Rude Fight Club! Let’s meet this week’s fighters…
Each week of Round Three, we’ll drop three Round Two winners into the ring and see who remains standing after a 24-hour Cocky & Rude Fight Club vote. Today’s contestants are: Mr. Sombrero, Ty & Ryan.
So far, I’ve destroyed uno, dos, TRES opponents in this silly battle. What makes you silly American think that I can’t defeat DOS more? I come from Mexico, where we murder people for fun. I will rain down on all of you with the hot sauce fiery fury of a Taco Bell restroom! Ty? That silly, bald American could never win at the Mexican version of Jeopardy! In our version, we play for tacos and kill the losers. And the winners. And Ryan? My churro could beat his cupcake any day of the week. I will destroy them both with my sombrero pulled down over my eyes! ¡Ay, caramba y yo quiero Taco Bell! -Mr. Sombrero
In his C&R Fight Club Round 1 battle, resident Jeopardy! genius Ty faced off against the the wheelchair-bound Stephen Hawking. After a fierce competition, The theoretical physicist and cosmologist proved no match for man that tells federal judges what to do, when Ty trounced Hawking with 73% of the popular vote. In Round 2, a very pale Ty faced off against the recently employed Mush and law student extraordinaire, Jere. Ty proved that he wasn’t only good at fighting physically disabled people when he beat the two with 44% of the popular vote. Will his pale skin and giant brain be enough to defeat Mr. Sombrero and Ryan? Soon we’ll find out!
I didn’t sign up for this, I’m up against the head writer’s boyfriend, and — AND — even if I win, I have to face a Wonder Woman at least 2.5 times as sassy as Lynda Carter. In light of all that, I don’t really have the energy for smack talk. Instead, here’s TV Guide’s summary for tonight’s episode of Whitney: “Whitney catches Alex eyeing [sic] a sightly woman and punishes him by refusing to talk to him.” YEAH!!!! -Ty
In his C&R Fight Club Round 1 battle, Ryan with a Cupcake faced off against his mortal enemy, The Muffin Man. The voice of the people was strong (and muffin-hating) as Ryan managed to earn a fantastic 99% of the popular vote. In Round 2, Ryan faced off against blogging superstar and world celebrity, the cocky, the rude, the egomaniac: Adam … and Chris D.And Adam won! Somehow, Ryan managed to defeat the dynamic duo with 49% of the popular vote. Adam thinks that he may have cheated. (He didn’t.) Will he cupcake his way to victory against Mr. Sombrero and Ty? We’ll find out soon enough!
Judging by his trash talk in the last round, Ty is just another nice guy. I would have thought that the milkman would have taught Ty how to stand up for himself. Meanwhile, all I have to do is take Mr. Sombrero’s hat to give him a crippling crisis of identity.
Who will win in the battle of Mr. Sombrero vs. Ty vs. Ryan? There’s only one rational way to decide who will win this battle. We’re putting this no-holds-barred fight to a vote. The poll will be open for approximately 24 hours, and you may vote as many times as you want. That’s right — we’re not blocking repeat votes, so vote now and vote often for your favorite Cocky & Rude Fight Club opponent.
Check back on Sunday for the results!
Thanks to Mr. Sombrero, Ty & Ryan for your assistance with this post!
