Congratulations to Sasha Stone (our Expert from Awards Daily) for an outstanding score of 91.67% when predicting the 2019 Oscars winners on Sunday. She leads all people predicting and is just ahead of six others at 87.50% —Manuela Coelho, Ruby Sparks, Joey Valentino, xxdee, Kevin and Jacqui Dee Davis.
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).
