This app is built for Microsoft Excel for the purpose of viewing the nominees and predicted winners for each of the 24 categories of the Academy Awards. The app uses a prediction data feed from PredictWise.com that can be refreshed on demand. Doing so updates the visualization in the app.
The user can also select their choice of nominee for each category and their selection is shown in the visualization and recorded to a printable ballot sheet that they can take to Oscars parties for the fun of seeing how their individual choices fared versus the actual winners.
The Oscars Ballot Predictor is a very graphical, interactive, and animated app.
