Congratulations to Joyce Eng (TV Guide) and Gold Derby president Tom O’Neil for topping all other Experts by scoring 84% when predicting the 2017 SAG Awards film nominations on Wednesday. They were the best scorers out of 13 Experts, journalists who cover the film industry throughout the year.
Both of them had almost all nominees correct, missing just one slot in each category. Eng incorrectly had “La La Land” (ensemble), Tom Hanks for “Sully” (actor), Annette Bening for “20th Century Women” (actress), Ben Foster for “Hell or High Water” (supporting actor), and Greta Gerwig for “20th Century Women” (supporting actress). O’Neil also had “La La Land” and Gerwig along with Jake Gyllenhaal for “Nocturnal Animals” (actor), Isabelle Huppert for “Elle” (actress), and Michael Shannon for “Nocturnal Animals” (supporting actor).
For our other 11 Experts, Sasha Stone (Awards Daily) and Anne Thompson (Indiewire) are just behind the leaders with 80% correct. We then have a three-way tie between Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), and Brian Truitt (USA Today) at 76%.
Jack Mathews (Gold Derby) and Kevin Polowy are a notch behind them with 75% right. The next group at 71% is Edward Douglas (Weekend Warrior), Tariq Khan (Fox News), and Scott Mantz (Access Hollywood). Thelma Adams (Gold Derby) is in the final position with 67% accuracy.
