These kudos are always unpredictable (read full report here). Just four of our frontrunners in the dozen races prevailed: Best Director (Paul Thomas Anderson, "The Master"); Best Actress (Emmannuelle Riva, "Amour"); Best Supporting Actress (Amy Adams, "The Master") and Best Animated Feature ("Frankenweenie"). See the full breakdown of categories here

Not surprisingly, our Users, Experts and Editors did not fare that well when making predictions.

Only one User predicted that Foreign Language Film win for "Holy Motors" and four foresaw Roger Deakins winning Best Cinematography for "Skyfall." 

Five Users -- ccorleone, vin13ish, DiggsWu, ShatishRaj and Jjamesat27 -- scored 42%. 

They matched our top Expert --  Tariq Khan (Fox News). Our top Editor was Daniel Montgomery at 34%.

Experts Sasha Stone (Awards Daily) and Matt Atchity (Rotten Tomatoes) scored 25% while Edward Douglas (Coming Soon) and Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil got 17% as did our Editor Chris Beachum while Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby) scored 9%. Alex Suskind (Moviefone) missed his only prediction, which was for Best Picture.
