And the winner is...

Shawn Johnson of Fairfax, Virginia, has been named the winner in's 2002 Inside the Envelope: Academy Awards game. Johnson correctly guessed the winners of 19 out of 24 Academy Award categories.

While two other contestants also correctly answered 19 our of 24 categories, Johnson was the only one of the three to correctly answer one of the tiebreaker questions. A total of 95,000 ballots were entered in the contest.

Soon after the nominees were announced on February 12, launched the Inside the Envelope game that offered a new Home Theater System to whomever could guess the most Oscar winners.

Johnson, a self-proclaimed avid Oscar follower, makes it a goal each year to see all the films nominated in the top categories.

"It is rather difficult to pick winners," she said. "I had gone and seen quite a bit of the movies. And I went with who I wanted to win and who I though did the best acting."

The human resources representative, who said she had never won anything in her life, admitted she was shocked when she found out she won the prize. She said she was happy to "actually win something from all that time and effort I put into going to see all these movies."

Of the big six categories, best actor, best actress, best supporting actress, best supporting actor, best director and best film, Johnson voted correctly on all except best director.
