…all of you. You are all winners. Just, you know, not of the Totally Killer/TNB/Facebook contest. There’s only one winner where that is concerned. Actually, there are three.
But before I make that dramatic announcement, I’d like to introduce the president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Mr. Jack Valenti.
Instead, let’s take a moment to look at the most totally killer — the totally killerest? — photo of the 1991 batch. This is my friend Ruth, who is probably the last person you’d expect to see photographed packing this kind of heat:
A word about my methodology, though. There were 117 official entrants, which means the Grand Prize is a signed copy of the book, plus a $50 iTunes gift card. I was so touched by your incredible response and show of support — how fun has it been to see all those old photographs? — that I’m also sending signed books to two runners-up.
I assigned each entrant a number, 1-117, and, using the “pick random number” function on my iPhone, picked three numbers. (My wife did this, actually, by shaking the phone; it was really fun). The first one picked was the winner; the other two, the runners-up.
Thank you so much for participating. I really appreciate it. As I said, I’m really touched by the response.
And now, without further ado, the envelope please…
The winner is…
And the runners-up are…
