2019 Oscar Challenge

2019 Excel Rain Man OSCulator is here!!

Many thanks to the fab Allyssa, who is serving up season 10 of this spreadsheet sensation!!

The Excel Rain Man OSCulator (OSCAR + Calculator = OSCulator) is an easy to use Oscar winner pick-em pool…so let the games begin! Whether you’re looking to start an office pool or your bestie hosts an annual Oscar Party, this is a fun and easy way to manage and/or participate in spreadsheet-based betting and hopefully fleece your friends and coworkers of their hard earned casheesh!

Also, in honor of this year’s celebration of cinema, I present the Excel Rain Awards!!!! Think Oscars meets Entertainment Book Coupons meets highway rest stop (not in weird way).

This is actually the 2nd Excel Rain Awards. The first was around a million years ago (2012)… Here is the link, in case you care… which you should… because I thought it was funny.

To use the free Excel Rain Man 2019 OSCulator:
– Go to the Tips & Tricks page of www.ExcelRainMan.com and download the file called 2019 OSCulator.
– A pop-up window will appear asking you to Open or Save this file. We recommend saving the file in a memorable directory on your PC (Desktop or My Documents).
– Now find the 2019 Osculator.zip file that you saved, right click on it and select “Extract All…”. Once this is complete (note the Wizard is happy to walk you through this), we suggest opening the 2019 OSCulator Guide to walk you through your brand new 2019 OSCulator.
– Direct the pool entrants to download the 2019 Oscar Ballots for free from the Tips & Tricks page of www.ExcelRainMan.com. Ask all participants to enter their Name where indicated on the form and make a selection for each Award Category using the available dropdown menus.
– Your crew sends back their completed Ballots.
– You (aka the Pool Manager) will keep track of their selections via the 2019 OSCulator. Let our OSCulator do the work of tallying up the results on OSCAR night so you can get back to your white zin and enjoy the rest of your evening.

Please note that both our PC and Mac friends can participate in the OSCAR Pool by filling out the ballots, but the 2019 OSCulator has to be run by a PC.
