Once again, this Southern California based group came up with some real headscratchers among their roster of winners. The frontrunner — “12 Years a Slave” — was all but shut out, taking just one award while “Her” proved to be a surprisingly strong contender, tying “Gravity” for Best Picture.
Even so, one of our Users — Christian — scored an impressive 82% and won our reader contest. His prize: a $100 Amazon Gift Certificate.
Another 13 Users scored above our best Expert — Edward Douglas (Coming Soon) and Editor — Matt Noble — who both came in at 64%.
I got 55% as did Daniel Montgomery while Rob Licuria and David Schnelwar got 46%, Tom O’Neil scored 37, Chris Beachum got 30 and Tariq Khan (Fox News) was at 28%.
Overall, we did best at predicting two of the races with ties — Actress and Supporting Actor — as well as the Cinematography award for “Gravity.” Our worst categories were Production Design which went to “Her” and that Animated Feature win for “Ernest & Celestine”.
