Our odds were calculated by combining the predictions of more than 2,000 Gold Derby users who have placed their bets here in our predictions center. That includes the Expert journalists we’ve polled, the Editors who cover awards year-round for Gold Derby, the Top 24 Users who got the highest scores predicting last year’s winners, and the All-Star Top 24 who got the highest scores when you combine prediction results from the last couple of years.
