Congratulations to our site Users jargreen, Keyser-So-So, Junk, and Max Rob who earned perfect 100% scores predicting the Visual Effects Society Awards winners. They all actually tied with 40 other Users with perfect scores but better used the 500 and 200 point bets for the most total points of 10,040.

Just three film categories were available for predictions, and the top Effects Driven Film award was given to the overwhelming favorite, “Gravity.” “Rush” was the favorite for Supporting Effects, but an upset winner was “The Lone Ranger” (which only 16% had correct). As expected, “Frozen” was awarded in the Animation Film category.
Daniel Montgomery was our only perfect Editor. The other four Editors — David Schnelwar, Marcus Dixon, Rob Licuria, and myself had 67% accurate.
Also perfect was our Expert Tariq Khan (Fox News). Getting two of three categories correct (67%) were Edward Douglas (Coming Soon), Gold Derby’s Tom O’Neil and Paul Sheehan, and Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood).
Collectively, the Editors and Experts tied with 73% correct, followed by our Users with 68%.
