Oscarmaster’s creator Phil Welsh includes the following tiebreakers:
The number of time the infamous symphony music is on cue for the award winner who goes over the allocated time in giving their acceptance speech.
If a tie still remains afterwards then the length of time given to the Best Picture recipient with their acceptance speech.
Oscarmaster Tiebreaker Rules:
If the number of times the symphony music cues cutting off the Oscar recipient is 6 and the time of the Best Picture acceptance speech is 45 seconds, and the following participant predicted the following:
Player 1: 5 speech cut-offs, 1 minute and 10 second
Player 2: 8 speech cut-offs, 45 seconds
Player 3: 7 speech cut-offs, 25 seconds
Winner: Player 3
Player 2 correctly guessed the length of the acceptance speech but because the speech cut-offs totaled 6, player 3 is the winner. The Best Picture acceptance speech is used to determine the tie breaker for the speech cut-off, but player 2 is void, while player 3 was the closest with 7 while player 1 under guessed with 5.
