UPDATE: Scott Feinberg (Hollywood Reporter) reaped the highest score (87.5%) among the 27 pundits predicting the Oscars at Gold Derby. In our earlier report, we incorrectly cited his score as 71% because we did not know he had updated predictions after his last "Feinberg Forecast." See his final, correct predix here.

In second place with 84% are Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood), Edward Douglas (Coming Soon) and Gold Derby's Paul Sheehan.

Michael Hogan (Huffington Post) got 80% while Michael Musto (Village Voice) scored 75%. 

Tied with 71% apiece were Thelma Adams (Yahoo), Tom O'Neil  (Gold Derby), Richard Rushfield (BuzzFeed), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), Glenn Whipp (LA Times) and Susan Wloszczyna (USA Today).  

With 67% each were Thom Geier (Entertainment Weekly), Dave Karger (Fandango), Tariq Khan (Fox News), Guy Lodge (In ContentionKevin Polowy (Next Movie) and Alex Suskind (Moviefone).
