The 78th annual edition of these kudos was full of surprises (read full report here). Only two of these nine races went to the frontrunners: Best Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis, “Lincoln“) and Best Foreign Language Film (“Amour“).
Not surprisingly, our Users, Experts and Editors did not fare that well when making predictions.
One User — coni21 — scored 67% while nine — MarhsallFlores, xander1, FEDEclown, RyanSteinke, baharatnayak2002, ENGLAND, isomac, nlaher and Mickymick0104 — earned 56%.
Among our Experts, Sasha Stone (Awards Daily) and our own Tom O’Neil scored 45%. Three of our Experts — Edward Douglas (Coming Soon) Guy Lodge (In Contention) and Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby) — scored 34% as did Editor Daniel Montgomery. Kevin Polowy (Next Movie) earned 23% while Tariq Khan (Fox News) got 12%. Steve Pond (TheWrap) scored 100%, but only predicted one race — Best Picture.
