What are we talking about?

The Talkies are a wonderful home-grown tradition of Table Talk, where community members are nominating films and actors for the usual prizes and some new, innovative ones as well. The winners will be announced at the time of the Academy Awards.

How to Enter:

It's free. Just visit the Table Talk discussion for more details. You must be a registered guest to post a message (but not to vote).

Grand Prize:

Voting is fun and easy, but that's not all -- you could win a gift basket of fabulous goodies just for participating. One winner will be selected in a random drawing from the pool of voters. So start preparing that (shocked but grateful) acceptance speech now!

Official Rules:

The deadline for voting will be Sunday March 19, 2000 with the awards to be announced on the morning of Sunday March 26, 2000 -- Oscar day!
