Gold Derby editors predict the New York & L.A. film critics’ awards

Some Gold Derby’s editors have very different notions of who’ll win the L.A. film critics’ awards (to be unveiled on Sunday) and the New Yorkers (Monday). Below are the forecasts of our editors Cassandra Belek, Robert Licuria, Matt Noble and Andrew Pickett. Compare these to the predictions we pooled from more than a dozen other journalists. Both sets of predix say “The Social Network” will win out west, but two of our editors foresee a “Black Swan” swooping down back east. Our editors have lots of other contrary views.
