Almost 1,200 Gold Derby readers predicted the winners in all 24 races at the Academy Awards. In total, our Users entered more than 25,000 predictions. To see how you fared, log in to your account and under your profile picture click on Oscars 2011

Certain categories, like Best Picture and both supporting acting races, had the overwhelming support of our Users, Editors and expert Oscarologists.

Then there were those, like Best Actress, where almost all of Experts (26/31) expected Viola Davis ("The Help") to prevail. Just five of them foresaw victory for Meryl Streep ("The Iron Lady") but hundreds of our Users thought she would finally win her third Oscar. Check out the category breakdowns here
