Congratulations to our User Jake Robinson for an excellent score of 90.48% when predicting the 2018 BAFTA Film Awards winners on Sunday. That puts him just ahead of a large group of 15 people with 85.71% accuracy. He also has a point score total of 3,910 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Over 1,900 people worldwide predicted these British Academy Film Awards winners in 21 categories. The awards ceremony was held on February 18 in London and was hosted by Joanna Lumley. Our top scorer got 19 categories correct, only missing out on Best Film Editing (choosing “Dunkirk” over “Baby Driver”) and Best Foreign Language Film (choosing “Elle” over “The Handmaiden”). That mean he correctly chose “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri” for Best Picture and Beste British Film and the four acting champs — Frances McDormand, Gary Oldman, Allison Janney and Sam Rockwell.
