Since my last report on the state of play this year just one of our celebrities has died - PD James. She was worth just six points so there isn't much change to the leaderboard.

And time is now up for calling time on our celebrities. It is quite possible for some deaths to not be reported for a while so I will wait a few days before announcing the results.

Just for the record: the 8th Duke of Wellington who I picked in 2013 died on the last day of 2014.

I am glad to see that all my old geezer pics get past the year on my list.

Another late entrant - Dave Comer who discovered many of the locations used in the Lord of the Rings films. His obituary speaks well of him.

I will sort out some final scores later today.

It's results time!

A grand total of 18 of our 301 nominees complied with our suggestions and the winner of the main competition is Tree Bee with 67 points. Runner up is Cottontail with 56 points and third is JFH with 51.

Winner of both the Inside Track with the Grim Reaper award and the Sudden Death award is Caissa for Ariel Sharon and PD James respectively.

The Quantity Not Quality award goes to kankucho who correctly anticipated 4 deaths.

Well done, everyone, especially the 22 entrants who managed to score bugger all.
