Our savviest predictor among our users was Dillon Rosenblatt, who scored 89%, correctly foreseeing the winners in 23 out of 26 races.

The three categories Dillon missed were the same that almost everyone else got wrong: Play Revival, Play Direction, and Play Featured Actress (Sophie Okonedo) wins for “A Raisin in the Sun.” Overall, none of our experts and editors correctly predicted those results, while just  2% of users foresaw its Play Revival and Play Direction wins and 7% anticipated Okonedo’s victory.

Despite Dillon’s dominance, our Experts were the smartest collective predictors, scoring 74%, compared to 67% for Users and 63% for Gold Derby Editors.
