Congratulations to Tyler G for having an excellent 66% accuracy rate predicting the 2015 Critics’ Choice TV Awards winners on Sunday. He actually tied with SimonJupiter, Dan_Quixote and Jen, but has the best point total of 4,296 by using his 500 and 200 point bets wisely on the 23 categories in our contest.
While several categories had expected winners — like Jeffrey Tambor (“Transparent“), Frances McDormand (“Olive Kitteridge“), and Allison Janney (“Mom” — others were much more difficult. On some of the tougher ones, Tyler G was able to correctly predict Amy Schumer (“Inside Amy Schumer“), Bob Odenkirk (“Better Call Saul“), Taraji P. Henson (“Empire“), and David Oyelowo (“Nightingale“).
You can see how your score compares to his in our leaderboard rankings of all contestants, which also includes links to see each participant’s predictions. Or you can find your score by clicking on “My Award Scores,” which appears in the gold menu bar when you’re signed in to your account.

In order to win, you must have the highest accuracy percentage – and maybe more than that. If more than one player has the best accuracy, the winner is the person with the highest accuracy plus most game points. So, remember to place your three super bets when making predictions. Each player gets one super bet of 500 points and two of 200 points with all the other categories worth 100 points. Strategy is key. Place those super bets wisely and they could crown you our winner.
