These kudos confounded almost all of our predictions (read full report here). Only two of the 11 races went to the frontrunners: Best Foreign Language Film (“Amour“) and Best Ensemble (“Les Miserables“). See the full breakdown of categories here.
Not surprisingly, our Users, Experts and Editors did not fare that well when making predictions.
Three Users — MatthewDiFeo , foxmulder and Jack Dudley — scored 45%. And 21 more Users came in at 37%.
These results are more impressive when you consider our top Expert — Kevin Polowy (Next Movie) — scored only 28% as did our three Editors (Chris Beachum, Marcus Dixon and Daniel Montgomery).
Sasha Stone (Awards Daily) and Gold Derby’s Tom O’Neil and Paul Sheehan got 19%. Edward Douglas (Coming Soon) and Tariq Khan (Fox News) did not get any of the races right. Peter Travers (Rolling Stone) missed on his three predictions as did Steve Pond (TheWrap) who weighed in only with his thoughts on Best Picture.
