  • Each of your 13 picks (10 movies and 3 dark horses) gets a single score assigned to it by using the following rules:
    • If your picked movie for #1 or #10 is correct, you score 13 points for it (or both).
    • If your picked movie for #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8 or #9 is correct, you score 10 points for it.
    • If your picked movie is only 1 spot away from its actual placement, you score 7 points for it.

    • If two or more rules apply to a single pick, only that single rule will be applied which assigns the highest point value to that pick. For example: If your pick for #1 is correct, you don’t get 16 points for it because it is #1 and because it placed inside the Top 10; instead you only get 13 points for it.
