Visual Effects Society awards prediction scores Star Wars: The Force Awakens The Revenant

Congratulations to Axolotlman for a perfect score predicting the 2016 Visual Effects Society Awards winners on Tuesday. He actually tied with a User named Basketball but had the best point total of 9,148 by using his 500 and 200 point bets wisely.

Over 550 people worldwide predicted the winners in three film categories. The VES members chose “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” (feature), “The Revenant” (supporting), and “The Good Dinosaur” (animation) for this year’s trophies.
