The Oscars, which often fall in line with precursor awards and nominations like SAG, the Directors Guild, and the Golden Globes, went their own way in many categories this year, producing a number of surprises, including Best Director, where only two of our top five predicted contenders ("Lincoln's" Steven Spielberg and "Life of Pi's" Ang Lee) made the cut.

Despite the Academy's unpredictable mood, three of our users correctly picked 77% of the nominees: rbttk1721, aticus, and robhuang. Two others were 76% accurate: RyanSteinke and Zach Laws.

They outguessed all of our experts and editors, among whom the top scorer was Daniel Montgomery with 74%. Following close behind among editors with 72% were Darrin Dortch and David Schnelwar.

Our savviest expert was Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood), who scored 73%, followed by Chuck Walton (Fandango) with 72%. Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Edward Douglas (Coming Soon), Michael Hogan (Huffington Post), and Gold Derby's Paul Sheehan all scored 70%.
