Those were the only five people who beat our best Editor — David Schnelwar — who came in at 89% accuracy. Next best at 78% were Daniel Montgomery, Marcus Dixon, and myself. The next spot is held by Matt Noble with 67% and then Rob Licuria with 45%.
Our overall best Experts were Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood) and Edward Douglas (Coming Soon), who tied with 89% correct. Just behind is a six-place tie at 78%: Matt Atchity (Rotten Tomatoes), Scott Feinberg (Hollywood Reporter),Tariq Khan (Fox News), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), Kevin Polowy (Yahoo Movies), and Susan Wloszczyna (Roger Ebert). The final spot with 67% accuracey is a three-way tie: Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby), Sasha Stone (Awards Daily), and Peter Travers (Rolling Stone).
The easiest picks seemed to be for “Frozen” as Best Animated Feature, “Breaking Bad” as Best Drama Series, and “Behind the Candelabra” as Best TV Movie/Miniseries. If a person predicted either “Gravity” or “12 Years a Slave” for Best Picture (it was an unprecedented tie), that was counted as correct in their totals. Even though it continues to sweep most everything, not many people actually picked “Modern Family” as Best Comedy Series.
For actual totals in those interesting categories, we did best at predicting the winners for Animated Feature (100%), Movie/Miniseries (99%), and Drama Series (93%). The worst categories were Reality Series with only 5% and Comedy Series with 32% correct.
Collectively, the Experts were best overall with 77%, follwed by the Users at 74%, and then the Editors at 72%.
