A total of 28 Users beat our best Editors — David Schnelwar and Marcus Dixon — who came in at 75% accuracy. Next best at 70% was Matt Noble. Rob Licuria and Daniel Montgomery followed with 6% correct. I brought up the rear with just 60%.
Our overall best Expert was Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood) with an excellent 80% correct. In second place was Gold Derby’s own Tom O’Neil with 70%. He was followed by five Experts at 65% — Edward Douglas (Coming Soon), Scott Feinberg (Hollywood Reporter), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby), Sasha Stone (Awards Daily), and Peter Travers (Rolling Stone). Tied with 60% each were Matt Atchity (Rotten Tomatoes) and Susan Wloszczyna (Roger Ebert). Claudia Puig (USA Today) scored 55%, and Tariq Khan (Fox News) was at 50%.
For actual totals in those interesting categories, we did best at predicting the winners for “Frozen” for Animated Feature (100%), “Gravity” for Visual Effects (99%) and Cinematography (99%), and Cate Blanchett for Actress (97%). The worst categories were “Rush” for Editing (0%), Barkhad Abdi for Supporting Actor (2%), and Jennifer Lawrence for Supporting Actress (6%).
