Producers Guild Awards nominations: ‘Boyhood,’ ‘Birdman’ and (surprise!) ‘Nightcrawler

Umurtas was one of an impressive 32 users who correctly predicted nine out of this year’s 10 nominees (90%), but he earned the highest score by betting 500 points on the race and correctly forecasting nods for the three biggest longshots: “American Sniper,” “Foxcatcher,” and “Nightcrawler,” all of which had 100/1 odds at the time he made his picks.

The only nominee umurtas missed was “The Theory of Everything.” Instead of the Stephen Hawking biopic, he expected the Martin Luther King biopic, “Selma,” to make the cut.

Those 32 users had better predictions than even our best experts and editors. I had the best predictions among editors, scoring 80%. Marcus Dixon was next with 70%, and Chris Beachum had 60%.

Selma, ‘Unbroken,’ ‘Interstellar,’ can rebound at Oscars after PGA snubs

Our savviest expert was Sasha Stone (Awards Daily), who also scored 80%. She missed “American Sniper” and “The Theory of Everything,” but she was one of the few to predict the bid for “Nightcrawler.”

Almost all of our other experts were 70% accurate: Gold Derby’s Tom O’Neil, Scott Feinberg (Hollywood Reporter), Edward Douglas (Coming Soon), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Michael Musto (Out.com), Thom Geier, Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood), and Tariq Khan (Fox News). Gold Derby’s Paul Sheehan, Susan Wloszczyna and Thelma Adams followed with 60%.
