Congratulations to Denton for an excellent 80% in predicting the 2016 Motion Picture Sound Editors Awards film winners on Saturday. He actually tied with three other people — ChristopherSwan, EMoushen, and Nathan Labonte — with that top percentage but had the best point total of 12,715 by using his 500 and 200 point bets wisely.
Almost 500 people worldwide predicted the winners in five categories. Our champ picked four correctly: “Mad Max: Fury Road” (foley; tie with “The Revenant“), “Bridge of Spies” (dialogue ADR), “Inside Out” (animation), and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (music). His only miss was the documentary category, where he had “Amy” instead of winner “Cobain: Montage of Heck.”
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.
