Congratulations to our User jtys for an excellent score of 81.37% when predicting the 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards film nominations on Wednesday. He is one position ahead of a trio of people — PJBrass, Oz, and Damiansport1 — who had 80.39% correct. Our top scorer also has an excellent point score of 12,371 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Almost 1,000 people worldwide predicted these critic nominees in 17 categories announced along with the television nominees. The winner ceremony will be held on January 11. Our top scorer got nine of the 10 Best Picture nominees, only missing out on “Mudbound,” which was replaced by actual nominee “The Big Sick.” He was perfect predicting directing and three of the four acting categories. In fact, his only acting miss was for Best Supporting Actor, where he chose Mark Rylance (“Dunkirk”) over actual nominee Patrick Stewart (“Logan”).
