As things stand now, here are the Oscars predix of our Top 24 Users:
The concept of this section at Gold Derby is to spotlight the 24 users who had the best Oscar predix last year and highlight them this year in a league to compete against our Experts and Editors. However, given the quirks of human nature, only 8 out of last year’s Top 24 are currently making predix. Therefore our Top 24 chart fills in with people who are next down in our 2013-2014 ranking in our leaderboards.
CURRENT TOP 24 CHARTS
But beware: if others from last year’s Top 24 return before the Oscars and make picks, they will bump down anyone with lower score. That means that if you are now in our Top 24 chart, you are vulnerable to be booted if you weren’t actually in our Top 24 ranking last year.
We GD editors don’t do enough to tout the predictions of our Top 24, which is insane, considering 23 of our users scored better than all of our Experts last year. We’ll try to ballyhoo them more in the future.
