The Globes often favor new and buzzworthy shows and big-name stars, and this year was no exception, with Showtime's watercooler thriller "Homeland" winning Best Drama Series for the second year in a row, while HBO's edgy "Girls" won Best Comedy Series. Acting prizes went to A-listers including Maggie Smith ("Downton Abbey"), Julianne Moore ("Game Change"), and Kevin Costner ("Hatfields and McCoys").

Were the winners predictable? Yes, according to our users' results. A whopping 16 correctly predicted 91%: jal2170, JdannyBF, Vektor, pgrimald, february77, LeonardHuang, ssfweb, pcioth01, Max, tomglee92, aticus, PopOfCulture, amflag, uncreativename, igottafindbubba, and vinipereira.

That matches the performance of our top expert, Tariq Khan (Fox News). He was followed by Peter Travers (Rolling Stone) with 82%. Matt Atchity (Rotten Tomatoes) and Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil were tied for third with 73%.

Our editors were less reliable this time around. Tied at 73% were Matt Noble and Darrin Dortch, followed by a four-way tie between Chris Beachum, Marcus Dixon, Robert Licuria, and Daniel Montgomery with 64%.
