Congratulations to our User Paul Rankin for a perfect score of 100% when predicting the 2018 Directors Guild Awards winners on Saturday. He is actually tied with 15 others with that percentage but has the better point score of 6,672 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Over 1,300 people worldwide predicted these DGA winners in three film and four television categories. The awards ceremony was held on February 3 in Beverly Hills and were hosted by Judd Apatow. Our top scorer had the correct movie picks of Guillermo del Toro for “The Shape of Water” (feature film), Jordan Peele for “Get Out” (first-time feature film), and “City of Ghosts” (documentary feature) among his great selections.
