Congratulations to our Expert Sasha Stone (Awards Daily) for a tremendous score of 91.67% when predicting the 2019 Oscars winners on Sunday. She leads 37 Experts, journalists who cover the entertainment industry throughout the year. See Experts’ scores.
Over 8,000 people worldwide predicted these Academy Awards champs at the Hollywood ceremony. Our champ got 22 of the 24 categories correct, only missing for Best Actress (choosing Glenn Close over Olivia Colman) and Best Documentary Feature (choosing “RBG” over “Free Solo”). That means she got Best Picture (“Green Book”) and the other three acting winners (Rami Malek, Regina King, Mahershala Ali).
