Everyone is abuzz with speculation on what stars and what movies will be honored when the Academy Awards® take place on Sunday, February 22nd. “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Birdman,” “The Imitation Game,” “Boyhood,” and “American Sniper” have received the most nominations. Meanwhile popular stars like Steve Carrell, Bradley Cooper, Michael Keaton, Julianne Moore and Reese Witherspoon are in hotly contested races for Best Actor/Actress Oscars®. Of course a victory can mean MILLIONS of dollars in their bank accounts – as if their paychecks weren’t already HUGE.
Overlooked by many amid all this hub-bub is the potential for some lucky person (unknown to movie-goers and the press) to walk away with an even bigger prize just five days later. On Friday, February 27th, someone — maybe YOU – will definitely win The Publishers Clearing House “FOREVER” Prize. How much is it worth? Well, hold onto your seats — it’s a blockbuster: $5,000 A Week for Life, and after that another $5,000 A Week for Life goes to someone else the winner chooses. Even big moneymakers in Hollywood would be drooling over that kind of pay!
Yes sir, on February 27th the PCH Prize Patrol will drive up to someone’s home, jump out and approach the door with roses, balloons, video cameras, champagne and – tah dah! — The Big Check! Believe me, the footage we capture at the “winning moment” could win the award for Best Dramatic Performance. There could be tears, screams, dancing, kisses, hallelujahs, speeches, fainting spells or stunned silence for our big winner.
In fact we don’t care what happens; we just want TV viewers to see that the winners are totally unprepared and that the “winning moments” are absolutely unrehearsed – because that’s the way they are and always have been. You can see loads of them at pchtv.com and on our YouTube channel.
Here’s hoping your favorites win an Oscar® and that YOU will be a big winner too — in the PCH Sweepstakes!
