Congratulations to our Experts Thelma Adams (Gold Derby), Eric Deggans (NPR), Scott Mantz (KTLA), Brian Truitt (USA Today) and Susan Wloszczyna (Gold Derby) for getting the highest score of 64.29% when predicting the 2021 Golden Globe film winners on Sunday. They are best among 30 Experts, journalists who cover the entertainment industry throughout the year. See Experts’ scores.
Over 4,600 people worldwide predicted these Globes champs announced by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for 14 movie categories. Our top scorers got 9 of the 14 categories correct on a night filled with such upsets as Andra Day (“The United States vs. Billie Holiday”), Jodie Foster (“The Mauritanian”) and Rosamund Pike (“I Care a Lot”) in lead actress races.
The HFPA winners ceremony aired live on NBC and was hosted by Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. Actress Jane Fonda was the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award for film life achievement. Producer Norman Lear was presented with the Carol Burnett Award for television life achievement.
