As the 83rd Academy Awards inched its way to our television sets, San Rafael Patch wanted to get in on the excitement. Starting the Friday before the stars graced the red carpet, we ran a contest: .
Our readers entered their choices for best picture, best actress, best actor, best supporting actress, best supporting actor, best director and best original song. Although many of those who commented had good insticts, most guessed "The King's Speech" would take the prize, only one person guessed all right: Jonathan Wells.
Congratulations Mr. Wells! We are mailing your gift card to you now!
Stay tuned for other Patch contests!
