Congratulations to our Users Alexander Kaveh Kouhi, Nathan Labonta, Eric Close and myself for a perfect 100% score when predicting the 2018 Visual Effects Society winners on Tuesday. This quartet is actually tied with 312 others with that percentage but has the better point score of 3,900 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Almost 700 people worldwide predicted these VES winners in three film and two television categories. The awards ceremony was held on February 13 in Beverly Hills and was hosted by Patton Oswalt. Our top scorers had the correct movie picks of “War for the Planet of the Apes,” “Dunkirk” and “Coco” plus TV predictions of “Game of Thrones” and “Black Sails.”
