These kudos have an excellent track record of foreseeing many of the Oscar nominees. (Read report on Tuesday's nominations here and see full list here.)

Most of the categories at these awards bestowed by the Broadcast Film Critics Assn. are filled with our Oscar frontrunners, including all 10 of our top Best Picture contenders as well as the first six in each of the director and lead acting races. See the full breakdown of categories here

Using the Oscars as a guide, our Users, Experts and Editors did very well when making predictions.

Two Users -- WhitakerGardner and AlexMovieland-- scored 86%. Another dozen Users came in at 85%.  

Both our top Expert -- Matt Atchity (Rotten Tomatoes) -- and Editor Chris Beachum were right behind at 84%. 

Kevin Polowy (Next Movie) got 82% while Gold Derby's own Paul Sheehan and Tom O'Neil scored 81% and 79% respectively. Our other Editor, Daniel Montgomery, got 77%.
