Congratulations to our User Monty for getting the highest score of 83.64% when predicting the 2021 Golden Globe film nominations on Wednesday. He is actually tied with two other people — EMoushen and Crackleking — but has the high score of 13,672 by using his 500 point bets wisely.
Almost 4,000 people worldwide predicted these Globes nominees announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for 11 movie categories. Our top scorer got 46 of the 55 nominee slots correct. That included all five of the drama film nominees of “The Father,” “Mank,” “Nomadland,” “Promising Young Woman” and “The Trial of the Chicago 7.” Other long shots that paid off: Anya Taylor-Joy (“Emma”), Jodie Foster (“The Mauritanian”) and Andra Day (“The United States vs. Billie Holiday”).
The winners ceremony will be presented by the HFPA on February 28 for an NBC ceremony hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Actress Jane Fonda will receive the Cecil B. DeMille Award for film life achievement. Producer Norman Lear will be presented with the Carol Burnett Award for television life achievement.
