Congratulations to our User Teresa Martins DeBarros for achieving a very impressive top score of 64.29% predicting the 2015 MTV Movie Awards winners at Gold Derby. In fact, she was the only one with that high score and also had a large number of 15,766 points won using her 500 and 200 point bets wisely.
This was a particulary tough year in predicting these MTV winners, with several choices further down our charts. Among the very strong picks by our winner DeBarros, she chose “The Fault in Our Stars” for Movie of the Year, Bradley Cooper (“American Sniper) for Male Performance, Elizabeth Banks (“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1“) for On Screen Transformation, Meryl Streep (“Into the Woods“) for Villain, Jennifer Lopez (“The Boy Next Door“) for Scared Performance, and Zac Efron and Dave Franco (“Neighbors“) for On Screen Duo.
You can see their scores and yours in our leaderboard rankings of all contestants, which also includes links to see each participant’s predictions. Or you can find your score by clicking on “My Award Scores,” which appears in the gold menu bar when you’re signed in to your account.
For her efforts, Teresa Martins DeBarros wins a $100 Amazon gift card, pending Gold Derby evaluating her eligibility based upon our contest rules.

In order to win, you must have the highest accuracy percentage – and maybe more than that. If more than one player has the best accuracy, the winner is the person with the highest accuracy plus most game points. So, remember to place your three super bets when making predictions. Each player gets one super bet of 500 points and two of 200 points with all the other categories worth 100 points. Strategy is key. Place those super bets wisely and they could crown you our winner.
To enter your predictions, make sure you are logged into your Gold Derby account or register for a free account via Facebook, Twitter or Google.
