Congratulations to Cesar for a terrific 83.33% prediction rate for the 2016 Costume Designers Guild Awards winners on Tuesday. He actually tied with our User TWsatan but had the better point total of 22,805 by using his 500 and 200 point bets wisely.
Over 750 people worldwide predicted the winners in six categories. Our top scorer picked five of those six categories correctly: “Mad Max: Fury Road” (film fantasy), “The Danish Girl” (film period), “Beasts of No Nation” (film contemporary), “Game of Thrones” (TV fantasy), and “American Horror Story: Hotel” (film contemporary). His only miss was by picking “Mad Men” over champ “The Knick” (TV period).
You can see how your score compares to his 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 his efforts, Cesar wins a $100 Amazon gift card, pending Gold Derby evaluating his eligibility based upon our contest rules.
For the six Experts predicting CDG winners, Edward Douglas (Weekend Warrior) is on top with 50% accuracy. Tariq Khan (Fox News), and Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby) are next with 34% right.
