More than 1,000 Gold Derby readers predicted the winners in 14 categories at the Golden Globes for film. In total, our Users logged almost 14,000 predictions.

To see your results, log into your account and under your profile picture click Golden Globes (Film) 2012. And to find out where you rank on our leaderboard, click here.

For a full breakdown of our results by category, click here.

Frontrunner "Lincoln" won only one out of its seven categories -- Best Drama Actor for Daniel Day-Lewis -- far less than the five awards our experts forecast. "Argo" won Drama Picture and Director instead, while "Django Unchained" won Supporting Actor (Christoph Waltz) and Screenplay (Quentin Tarantino).

Despite the surprises, seven of our users managed to correctly predict 86% of the winners: JackDudley, RJ, bclores, Wilkomirsk11, Vincent_van_Cleemput, LoganPeterson, and AlbertoRodriguezGutirrez.

Gold Derby's Paul Sheehan matched that score, leading the way among experts. Peter Travers (Rolling Stone) followed with 79%. Glenn Whipp (LA Times), Richard Horgan (Fishbowl LA), and Tariq Khan (Fox News) were tied at 72%.

Chris Beachum was our top predictor among editors, with 79%. Darrin Dortch and David Schenlwar were next with 72%.
