Congratulations to Cederick for a very impressive top score of 79% predicting the 2015 SAG Awards TV nominations on Wednesday. He actually tied with remm824 and cp13 but had the better point total of 13,686 by using his 500 and 200 point bets wisely.
Over 700 people worldwide predicted the nominees in eight categories. Among our scoring champ's best picks were Kristen Wiig ("The Spoils Before Dying") as Best Movie/Mini Actress, "Mad Men" making a return as Best Drama Ensemble, a category where he had all five correct. He was also perfect in choosing all five nominees as Best Comedy Actor.
