These official odds are derived from the predictions of Expert film journalists we've polled, along with Gold Derby Editors who cover awards year-round, the Top 24 Users who got the top scores predicting last year's Golden Globe nominations and the more than 1000 total Users who make up the largest (and often savviest) bloc of predictors

Remember that coming out on top doesn't just mean making the correct predictions. You also have to use your three big bets (one of 500 points and two of 200 points) strategically to score the most game points. If you bet on a long shot who pulls off an upset, you can really rack up the points. As we use those point totals to break ties when more than one user tops our leaderboard with the same number of correct predictions, don't take them for granted.
