"Lincoln" set the record for most nominations (13), but like the previous record holder, "Black Swan," which was up for 12 in 2010, it lost Best Picture and Best Director; "Argo" won those prizes instead. "Lincoln" was also upset in the race for Best Supporting Actor, where Tommy Lee Jones lost to Philip Seymour Hoffman ("The Master").

Those weren't the only categories that defied our predictors' expectations, but three of our users still managed to correctly predict 75% of winners: ccg425, spittingnickels, and iamfromecuador. Another 13 users predicted 70%.

That was better than any of our experts, the best of whom was Matt Atchity (Rotten Tomatoes), who got 65% of winners right. Sean O'Connell (Hollywood News) and Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil were tied with 60%.

Our editors closely matched that performance, with Darrin Dortch also leading the way with 65%, while Daniel Montgomery and David Schnelwar scored 60%.
