Congratulations to our User Sofya285 for an excellent score of 90.48% when predicting the 2019 BAFTA Film Awards winners on Sunday. She is actually tied with moviefan61794 at that percentage but has the better point score total of 8,238 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
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 19 of those categories, only missing for 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).
