Congratulations to our User jmpatison for a terrific 89% prediction rate for Saturday’s Producers Guild Awards winners. He actually tied with 21 other people but wisely used his 500 and 200 point bets for the best overall score of 12,755.
Over 400 Gold Derby readers forecasted this year’s PGA champs in nine categories, logging more than 3,600 predictions. To see how you fared, log in to your account and under your profile picture click Producers Guild Awards 2014.
PGA members chose several frontrunners as their new champs, including “The Lego Movie” as Best Animated Film, “Breaking Bad” as Best Drama Series, and “Orange is the New Black” as Best Comedy Series. Hardly anybody expected for them to award “Birdman” as Best Picture, but that is another one that our winner jmpatison predicted correctly. In fact, the only one that he missed for the ceremony was Best Variety Series where he selected “The Colbert Report” over “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.”
For our eight Experts we polled, the most impressive score was from Gold Derby’s own Paul Sheehan, who correctly predicted 78% of the winners. We then had a five-way tie at 67% between Edward Douglas (Coming Soon), Scott Feinberg (Hollywood Reporter), Tariq Khan (Fox News), Jenelle Riley (Variety), and Susan Wloszczyna (RogerEbert.com). Thom Geier follows at 56% and then Sasha Stone (Awards Daily) with 34% correct.
Matt Noble was proclaimed Gold Derby’s best Editor with 78% correct this year. I was next at 67%, folowed by Marcus Dixon, Rob Licuria, and Daniel Montgomery at 56% right
