Congratulations to our Expert Bonnie Fuller (Hollywood Life) for an outstanding score of 85.71% when predicting the 2019 BAFTA Film Awards winners on Sunday. She is best among 13 Experts, journalists who cover the entertainment industry throughout the year. See Experts’ scores.
Over 2,200 people worldwide predicted these 21 categories chosen by British academy voters. The ceremony was held in London and was hosted by Joanna Lumley. Our top scorer got 18 of those categories, only missing for Best Score, Best Film Editing and Best Sound. That means correct picks for Best Picture and Director (“Roma,” Alfonso Cuaron) and all four acting categories (Olivia Colman, Rami Malek, Rachel Weisz and Mahershala Ali).
