The Academy Awards will be presented on February 24th, awarding the best films of 2018.

The BTNext Staff then organizes a contest where you can bet on the winners in each category, in order to increase the interaction among users in a fun way, especially for those who are fond of the seventh art.

Each user who wishes to participate will indicate what will, in his opinion, be the winner of a particular category. They are not obliged to answer for all categories, however, it should be noted that the more categories your bet has, the more chances it has to win, of course!

It will only be a category bet, not being able to indicate two movies for the same.

To determine the winner the process will be simple ... whoever hits the highest number of winners wins.

Bets expire on 23 February.

The prizes will be as follows:

1st Place - 12000 Points
2nd Place - 8000 Points
3rd Place - 5000 Points
