Welcome to those of you visiting the site for the first time from the 9rules network. Dave and I started OscarFrenzy a little over a year ago to bring our on-going Oscar conversation online.

If you are here for the first time, a brief introduction is in order. OscarFrenzy is a website dedicated to predicting the Academy Awards. Using statistical analysis, insider information, and historical Academy Award trends and traditions, our experts give you the edge in forecasting the biggest races of the year. In the last few months, we have expanded our focus and started offering movie reviews. Ryan joined OscarFrenzy in September and serves as our resident movie critic. Lee, our newest writer, just posted his first article today.

If you are a regular OscarFrenzy reader and curious about 9rules, here’s an explanation from the 9rules About page:

9rules is a community of the best weblogs in the world on a variety of topics. We started 9rules to give passionate writers more exposure and to help readers find great blogs on their favorite subjects. It’s difficult to find sites worth returning to, so 9rules brings together the very best of the independent web all under one roof.
