The link for this year's Oscar Nominees has been updated in the "Just Between Friends Pages" section of our JBF blog. Click here to go to it!

Lisle Library is once again seeking to put Lisle’s best film pickers in the spotlight for its “Pick the Oscar Winners2017 contest! 

The Challenge:

Is for patrons to see if they can guess who the Oscar winners will be in 5 main categories: Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Picture.

We will be picking 5 winners from those who come closest to getting all 5 categories correct.

Winners will get our Oscar Movie Package: a bag of gourmet popcorn, a box of theater candy, and their choice of a free DVD from 5 of the nominated “Best Picture” DVDs. And contest bragging rights for the whole year!

Here are the details:

  • Ballots and ballot boxes, will be available at the Connection desk on Monday, January 30th.
  • One ballot per person please!
  • Balloting will end Saturday, February 25th at 5:00 p.m.
  • The 89th Oscars broadcast will be on Sunday, February 26th on ABC

·       Picks should be made based on who you think will win, not necessarily what you think should win.

·       Winners will be announced on Monday, March 6th.

Participants are encouraged to check the winners of the other Hollywood awards to help determine who the Oscar winners will be. These can be found here on our Just Between Frames film club blog.

Scroll to the box on the right side of the Just Between Frames page that says"Movie Awards Links". There are links there for the Golden Globe awards, the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards, and the Director’s Guild (DGA) awards. Many times the winners of these awards go on to win at the Oscars as well!

If you have any questions about the contest, please contact Patricia Ruocco at or ask for her when calling the library’s phone number: 630-971-1675.

Best of luck to everyone!
