Pay attention to the Oscar predictions of Keith Simanton (IMDB). Last year he reaped the top score by our Experts (84%) and just yesterday he led our pundit pack again by scoring 100% correct picks at the Indie Spirit Awards. (See official score report.)
Here are Keith’s current Oscar picks. Compare them to the rankings of our other 27 experts and decide for yourself: Will he do it again?
Beware: Keith likes to scoot out onto thin, shakey limbs sometimes. This year he’s going all out for “Spotlight” for Best Picture, but so I’m I, so I think he’s a genius, of course. We disagree about his pick for Best Song, but his reasoning is smart and I fear that he may be onto something. Hmmm … should I steal his pick (“Writing’s on the Wall”) while there’s still time?
