Penguin Books Best Actress Oscar Contest!

Don’t be fooled by their laughter. This is the most important contest on the internet.

Once the nominations for Best Actress were announced (because Best Actor has Gary Oldman, so, duh), the Viking/Penguin Books movie tie-in team immediately split into two halves: Team Glenn and Team Meryl. The losing team in our office has to buy lunch for the winners and will win unimpeded bragging rights for at least a week. And we want you to join us (in spirit—our office is a bit too small to invite all 1,000 of you all over for lunch)!

For the last 24 hours before the big show, we want to offer you a chance to win a set of all three “Oscar nominated” Penguin Books (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Iron Lady, and Albert Nobbs). 


  • Respond to this entry with your allegiance by 5PM EST tomorrow, February 26.
  • If Glenn wins, we’ll randomly pick one person from Team Glenn to win the set of books. Same if Meryl wins. If neither wins (heresy!) we’ll pick one participant from both teams at random.
  • Contest only open to residents of US & Canada. Apologies! 

So where do you stand? Team Glenn or Team Meryl?
