Congratulations to Paul Sheehan, Gold Derby executive editor, for topping all Users and Editors with an outstanding score of 83.61% when predicting the 2018 Oscars nominations on Tuesday. He is just ahead of Jeremy Heilman with 82.79% and has a great point score of 20,522 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Over 8,700 people worldwide predicted these Academy Awards nominees in all 24 categories. The awards ceremony will be held on Sunday, March 4, in Hollywood and will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel for the second straight year. Sheehan had all five Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor nominees picked correctly and had a long shot pick of “Darkest Hour” in the Best Picture field. He was also perfect in picking both screenplay categories.
