Happy Saturday Creative Army!

Welcome to the other side of awards season. Another Oscars night has come and gone, and we are happy to announce that the results are in from our 8th Annual Oscars Contest

Stage 32 Founder and CEO Richard "RB" Botto predicted an amazing 20 out of 24 correct (including Parasite for Best Picture!). Naturally, RB is in good company with his fellow Stage 32 members. 

Last year, we had two amazing Stage 32 members (Cali Gilbert & Trish Mistric) tie for first place, clocking 19 out of 24 correct predictions. Since 2016, Jovanni Ibarra held the record for most correct predictions with a whopping 21 accurate votes.

Well, without further adieu, we are excited to announce that this year, our top prize-winning member had an amazing 22 correct predictions!
