So … who are the real experts when making predictions at Gold Derby? Apparently, not the gang we officially call “Experts” if we compare their recent performance against our other groups: this site’s Editors, Users and the Top 24 Users who scored best last year and now take on the Experts and Editors.
Congrats to our Top 24 (76.6%) for besting all rivals forecasting the Oscar nominations. See chart above to see how each group performed. Our Editors (77.7%) came in first predicting who’ll win the Critics’ Choice Awards. Our regular Users (64.2%) reaped the top score picking Golden Globe film categories. Turns out that the “Experts” didn’t beat any of our other groups recently, but did tie them all predicting DGA and PGA nominations.
The last time the Experts came in first place was a month ago when they scored 66.8% of the Golden Globes’ TV nominees.
