Congratulations to Josh A for a very impressive top score of 85% predicting the 2015 Producers Guild nominations on Tuesday. He actually ties with Gold Derby executive editor Paul Sheehan for the top score but edges him out with a higher point total of 3,216 by locking in better odds.
Over 700 people worldwide predicted the nominees in three categories. Our scoring champ was able to get eight of the 10 nominees correct for Best Picture. His only misses were “Ex Machina” and “Sicario,” favoring “Creed” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” instead.
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.
For his efforts, Josh A wins a $100 Amazon gift card, pending Gold Derby evaluating his eligibility based upon our contest rules.
