Congratulations to our Expert Erik Davis for a terrific score of 81.82% when predicting the 2018 Independent Spirit Awards winners on Saturday. He is best among 14 Experts, journalists who cover the entertainment world and awards shows throughout the year. See Experts’ leaderboard.
Almost 2,000 people worldwide predicted these Indie Spirits winners in nine categories. The ceremony was held by the beach in Santa Monica and was hosted by Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. Davis picked “Get Out” for Best Picture with its director champ Jordan Peele and the four acting winners of Frances McDormand, Timothee Chalamet, Allison Janney and Sam Rockwell. He missed on Best Screenplay (choosing “Get Out” over “Lady Bird”) and Best Editing (picking “Good Time” over “I, Tonya”).
