Are They Betting on a Winner?

Went into a bookstore the other day that is not one of the normal big box bookstores I inhabit since we have been out of town. They handed me a receipt and a coupon that gave me the chance to win $5 off a purchase next week, depending on tonight's Academy Awards.

Coupon here.....

It didn't take me more than a few seconds to see the catch. 
Note that there are eight movies listed...

but remember there are nine movies nominated.

Which one is not in the contest?


The one most highly favored to win.

Accidentally missed? Not included so there will be winners only in case of a major upset?

Just wondering, that's all.

By the way, I purchased a magazine later in the evening and got the same "coupon" on which I circled the other two most likely to win, but I am not confident that I am going to get my $5 coupon.
