Congratulations to our User Jason Nolette for an outstanding score of 90% when predicting the 2018 Writers Guild Awards winners on Sunday. He is actually tied with 112 others with that percentage but has the better point score of 5,955 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Over 1,300 people worldwide predicted these WGA winners in three film and seven television categories. The awards ceremony was held on February 11 in New York City (hosted by Amber Ruffin) and in Beverly Hills (hosted by Patton Oswalt). Our top scorer had the correct movie picks of Jordan Peele for “Get Out” (original screenplay), James Ivory for “Call Me By Your Name” (adapted screenplay”) and “Jane” (documentary screenplay) among his great selections.
