Congratulations to our site User KevinDillon, who reaped a perfect 100% score predicting the SAG Awards film winners. In fact, over 100 of our users were completely accurate, but Kevin best used the 500 and 200 point bets and had the most total points with 90,256.
About 1,100 Gold Derby readers forecasted this year’s SAG film champs, logging almost 5,600 predictions. To see how you fared, log in to your account and under your profile picture click SAG Awards (Film) 2013.
Also scoring perfect scores were two of our Editors, Daniel Montgomery and Rob Licuria. I was tied for second place at 80% (missing one category) with David Schnelwar and Marcus Dixon. Matt Noble was in the final spot with 60%.
While almost everyone expected the wins by Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine“) and Jared Leto (“Dallas Buyers Club“), the ones that tripped up some people were the victories by “American Hustle” as Best Film Ensemble, Lupita Nyong’o (“12 Years a Slave“), and even Leto’s co-star Matthew McConaughey.
Compared with all predictions, the Gold Derby editors were best at 83%. The website Users were next at 74% and then the Experts at 73%.
