ABC's live telecast of the 72nd annual Academy Awards begins at 8:30 p.m. Sunday, March 26, on WJBF-TV (Channel 6). The host is Billy Crystal.

Are you ready to make your picks? No, not in the Final Four pool at the office. We're inviting you to predict the winners of the 72nd annual Academy Awards. Outpick arts-and-entertainment writer Steven Uhles in the top six categories and we'll print your name in the newspaper. Correctly pick all six winners and you'll be entered in a drawing for a $100 cash prize. The winner will be notified by phone by Friday, March 31.

The top categories are: best picture, director, actor, actress, supporting actor and supporting actress.

Next Sunday (March 26), the day of the Academy Awards telecast, we'll reveal Mr. Uhles' picks. On Sunday, April 2, we'll run the names of the people who beat him and announce the winner of the cash prize. For more information, call 823-3348.
