These odds are based on the combined forecasts of more than 5,000 Gold Derby users who have entered their picks in our predictions thus far, and that number has been going up every day as the big night approaches.

Even with the awards right around the corner it’s hard to find a clear consensus for Best Picture. Our users are primarily split between three films: “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri,” “The Shape of Water” and “Get Out.” “Billboards” won Golden Globe and BAFTA Awards for Best Picture, while “Shape” took Critics’ Choice, the Producers Guild and the Directors Guild. The biggest industry prize for “Get Out” was the Writers Guild Award, but it could still win on the same consensus-driven preferential ballot that elevated “Spotlight” (2015) and “Moonlight” (2016) to surprise Oscar victories.
