Can a bingo cage randomizer be more accurate when it comes to picking the Oscars? That’s what we’re going to find out!

For each category, numbered bingo balls represented the 3, 5, or 9 nominations in that category. For example The makeup and hairstyling category has 3 nominees, 3 balls were in the cage. Kate & Josh said their pick and the “Nic” Cage was rolled and out popped a number ball, in this case, B1, with A Man Called Ove listed first therefore Nic’s pick. All picks were rolled during the show’s recording. They are listed below and on the printable Kate’s Take Ballot (which includes Kate & Josh’s picks so you see just how bad they did too)  kates-take-oscar-ballot-2017

Kate’s Take started on D20crit.com in October of 2014. Kate was a guest on D20crit’s show A Bit of Geek and Nerdery Episode #12 talking about the new film she was producing called Ezekiel’s Landing (link to episode). She became a returning guest and before long Wil asked if she had an idea for her own show. Kate’s Take is an adaption from a never-finished novel entitled “I Blame Lucas” where Kate recalls her life through the movies she had watched starting with Star Wars: A New Hope and ending with Return of the Sith. Wil Derringher co-hosted, edited and produced the show for D20crit. Together Kate and Wil produced 57 episodes and won 5 awards for the show from INDYpodnet.

In August of 2016 tragedy struck with the loss of Wil’s beloved wife, Tristan. Understandably Wil was unable to do the show. November 2016 the show was moved from D20crit to Gal’s Guide to the Galaxy and re-titled Kate Take: Reloaded.
