Gold Derby voids SAG Awards prediction scores due to security leak

Turns out that SAG nomination for Nicole Kidman in “The Paperboy” was not such a surprise after all, at least to those who discovered a hole in the security fence at the guild’s website. 

Over at our pal Sasha Stone‘s Awards Daily, a comment was left leading the way to determining who the nominees were prior to the announcement at 9 am PT. All you had to do was search for a film or performer at www.sagawards.org to see if they had made the cut for these 19th annual kudos. 

The intrepid A.V. Club TV editor Todd VanDerWerff did just that and sent out a series of Tweets with all the nominees.

Because of this breach, we will be voiding the predictions made by our users for both the film and TV SAG Awards. Check your results today, because they will be removed from the menu tomorrow.

  1. @Christophe: There really isn’t anything GD can do besides void its predictions, and possibly implement an earlier cutoff time just in case something like this happens in the future. GD can’t possibly prevent the upload of nominees to an AWARDS site before the official announcement; that’s the SAG Awards’ own fault. (Apparently IF there was a leak before the Critics’ Choice announcement, it didn’t become public the way the SAG leak did.)
