Congratulations to Rkenny4, Joseph, DanQuixote, and Magic8Ball for finishing with perfect scores predicting the 2015 DGA Awards nominees on Tuesday. There were actually a total of 193 people with perfect scores, but these four Users tied with the best point total of 12,670 by using their 500 point bet wisely.
Over 1,100 people worldwide predicted the DGA Awards category of Best Feature Film Directing. The nominees are Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (“The Revenant“), Tom McCarthy (“Spotlight“), Adam McKay (“The Big Short“), George Miller (“Mad Max: Fury Road“), and Ridley Scott (“The Martian“).
You can see how your score compares to theirs 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 their efforts, these four Users will equally split the prize of a $100 Amazon gift card, pending Gold Derby evaluating their eligibility based upon our contest rules.
For the 11 Experts predicting the DGA nominees, there is a six-way tie with perfect scores between Thelma Adams (Gold Derby), Tariq Khan (Fox News), Tom O’Neil (Gold Derby), Sasha Stone (Awards Daily), Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood), and Peter Travers (Rolling Stone).
The other five Experts are at 80% accuracy: Matt Atchity (Rotten Tomatoes), Edward Douglas (Weekend Warrior), Jack Mathews (Gold Derby), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby), and Susan Wloszczyna (RogerEbert.com).
Among the five Editors, Daniel Montgomery and I also have perfect scores for first place. We then have a tie between Marcus Dixon, Rob Licuria, and Matt Noble with 80% correct.
