Congratulations to our User Pamela Almeida for a near perfect score of 95.83% when predicting the 2018 Oscars winners on Sunday. She is actually tied with four others — Kayla Freeman, Abdulrahman Mohammed, Joshua Wye and Gautam — with that percentage but has the better point score total of 5,876 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Almost 7,000 people worldwide predicted these Academy Awards winners in 24 categories. The ceremony was held in Hollywood and was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel. Our top scorer only missed out on one category — choosing “DeKalb Elementary” over “The Silent Child” for Best Live Action Short. That means she got “The Shape of Water” for Best Picture with its director champ Guillermo del Toro and the four acting winners of Frances McDormand, Gary Oldman, Allison Janney and Sam Rockwell.
