Congratulations to our User bondzzz for an outstanding 88% prediction rate for Sunday’s Screen Actors Guild television winners. He actually tied with six other people but wisely used his 500 and 200 point bets for the best overall score of 10,356.
Almost 900 Gold Derby readers forecasted this year’s SAG TV champs in the eight categories, logging more than 7,200 predictions. To see how you fared, log in to your account and under your profile picture click SAG Awards (TV) 2014.
Some of this year’s SAG winners were fairly predictable, including Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards“), “Orange is the New Black,” and Frances McDormand (“Olive Kitteridge“). But our winner bondzzz also picked some underdogs like William H. Macy (“Shameless“), Uzo Aduba (“Orange is the New Black”), and “Downton Abbey.” In fact, his only miss was choosing Billy Bob Thornton (“Fargo“) instead of winner Mark Ruffalo (“The Normal Heart“).
Out of 12 Experts we polled, three of them top the list with a 50% score: Joyce Eng (TV Guide), Tariq Khan (Fox News), and Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby). We then have a four-way tie at 38% between Scott Feinberg (Hollywood Reporter), Thom Geier, Ken Tucker (Yahoo), and Susan Wloszczyna (RogerEbert.com).
Marcus Dixon and I had the best score among Gold Derby’s Editors with 63% scores. Daniel Montgomery was next at 50%, and then Rob Licuria and Matt Noble with 25%correct.
