Three experts tied for having the most correct predictions (19) when forecasting for Gold Derby who’ll win the Critics’ Choice Awards: Pete Hammond (Deadline Hollywood), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby) and Anne Thompson (Indiewire). Thompson was the only pundit who foresaw the win by “The Fighter” as Best Ensemble. No one correctly predicted that “If I Rise” from “127 Hours” would win Best Song.
Bob Tourtellotte (Reuters) was the only pundit who forecasted two categories correctly: Best Score and Cinematography.
