Congratulations to our User FrantiAjek Forrai for an excellent score of 85.71% when predicting the 2019 Golden Globe film winners on Sunday. He is actually tied with two other people — Robert Hallett and Faisal H — but has the better point score total of 16,692 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Almost 4,000 people worldwide predicted these film winners for the 14 categories chosen by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. The Golden Globes ceremony was live in Beverly Hills and was hosted by Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh on NBC.
Our top scorer had 12 of the 14 categories correct. In fact his only misses were for Best Screenplay (choosing “The Favourite” over “Green Book”) and Best Score (choosing “Mary Poppins Returns” over “First Man”). That means he got the stunning upset correct of “Bohemian Rhapsody” winning for Best Film Drama.
