"Psst! Tom, it's over. A monster sweep for 'Les Miz.' Mark this date down," says a private message I just received on Oct. 6 from someone who really knows his Oscars.

It's our user "Snuggle4" – who won Gold Derby's Oscar predictions contest last year and came in fourth place predicting the recent Emmys.

Obviously, he's a Hollywood hotshot because, when I asked him to reveal his true identity to claim a prize after his Oscar achievement, he refused, replying, "Can we just skip the name part and suffice it to say I'm an industry gadfly? … My philosophy on picking winners is easy - don't listen to bloggers and JUST SEE THE FILMS! Down to the last nominated documentary short. Listen to industry buzz, but pay no mind to film critics or you'll be 'Social Networked' right out of contention."

When I asked him if he's seen "Les Miserables," he replied with this tease, "I can neither confirm nor deny that I've seen it. Hope that helps … ;)."

Last year Snuggle4 scored 88% when forecasting the Oscars, which was much higher than the 80% reaped by the three Experts who won our predictions contest: Pete Hammond (Deadline Hollywood), Sasha Stone (AwardsDaily) and Tariq Khan (Fox News). At his Gold Derby account page, Snuggle4 uses the image of the mascot of Snuggle laundry fabric softener.
