    One of the best picture Oscar statuettes appears off stage as Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announce the best picture winner at the Oscars on Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017, at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles.

    The winner of the NBC 5 anchor Oscar ballot contest is... Newy Scruggs!

    On Friday we posted the Oscar picks for the NBC 5 anchors, and come Monday morning, NBC 5 Sports Director Newy Scruggs was the winner of the pool.

    Newy got 16 picks right to Gary's 15.

    We have to mention, Gary Cogill chose two winners in a couple of categories but Newy still beat Gary.

    That would still hold true if the Oscar flub of the decade had been true and La La Land won best picture, since both Newy and Gary picked it to win.

    Gary and Newy’s picks were neck and neck throughout, but Best Sound Mixing is where Newy correctly picked Hacksaw Ridge -- see below:
