Awards Frenzy is a website dedicated to monitoring the Oscar race year round and predicting the Academy Awards. Every year, we offer in-depth year in advance predictions the day following the Oscars. Then, we follow the race through the summer and fall festivals and report on the major critics awards, the National Board of Review, Broadcast Films Critics Awards, Golden Globes, and the guilds. Once the Oscar nominations are announced in late January, we analyze each and every category, from Best Actor to Best Original Score, providing you with reliable predictions across the board. We are your #1 resource to winning your Oscar pool!

In addition, we offer movie and trailer reviews of Oscar contenders, year round predictions contests, games, and other exciting features. Our staff features a talented group of writers and analysts who live and breathe the Oscars 365 days a year.

Awards Frenzy, formerly known as Oscar Frenzy, was founded by Dave Yen and Julia Kulla-Mader.


DAVE YEN has followed the Academy Awards ever since he was 15. He is the co-founder of Awards Frenzy and the site’s predictions guru. He has studied and covered extensively every Oscar race since 1995, when Braveheart edged out Apollo 13 for Best Picture. His film-related credentials also include writing movie reviews for his college newspaper and writing, directing, and producing numerous short films. When he is not making predictions for Awards Frenzy, Dave works as a trial attorney for The Cartwright Law Firm in San Francisco, California
