My answer is B...

"Neither the Judge nor I.." means that there are two people and therfore the plural "are" is more appropriate than the singular "am". That leaves B, C or E and out of those I choose B because "...who the winner is" counds correct to me and "...who is the winner" in C and E seems like the statement is ending in a question when it shouldn't.

"A"

Paddy is right, last subject determines the verb.

Two singular subjects connected by either/or or neither/nor require a singular verb as in,
Examples
1)Neither John nor Susan is available.
2)Either Kiana or Casey helps today with stage decorations.

When a singular subject is connected by or or nor to a plural subject, put the plural subject last and use a plural verb.
Example The book or the magazines are on the shelf
