Most predictors expected critics' darling "12 Years a Slave" to win top honors. In fact, only two users anticipated the upset victory by "American Hustle," which only recently began screening for the press. The David O. Russell-directed film also won Best Supporting Actress (Jennifer Lawrence) and Best Screenplay.

Two users were ahead of the curve: Ryan_Fernand and RobertPius, who correctly predicted six out of nine categories, scoring 67%. Neither of them predicted the Best Picture win for "Hustle," but both saw Lawrence's win coming. Another seven users got five out of nine correct (56%). Since Ryan_Fernand earned the most game points, he wins Gold Derby's contest prize of $100 Amazon gift certificate.

They outscored the best of our editors: Matt Noble and Chris Beachum, both with four correct predictions (45%). Daniel Montgomery followed with three correct (34%). David Schnelwar and Robert Licuria were right twice (23%).

Our top expert, Keith Simanton (IMDb), also scored 45%, while Tariq Khan (Fox News) and Gold Derby's Paul Sheehan scored 34%. With one out of nine correct predictions, Edward Douglas (Coming Soon) and Gold Derby's Tom O'Neil scored 12%.

Our editors scored best overall, averaging 33%, followed by users (28%), and experts (27%).
