Nominations Scoreboard

How I did, and how I racked up against the Gold Derby experts

PICTURE:  (8/10)  I predicted tick, tick...BOOM! and The Tragedy of Macbeth; but those slots went to Drive My Car and Nightmare Alley


DIRECTOR:  (4/5) I predicted Denis Villeneuve (Dune) over Ryusuke Hamaguchi (Drive My Car)


ACTOR:  (4/5)  I predicted Leonardo DiCaprio (Don't Look Up) over Javier Bardem (Being the Ricardos)


ACTRESS:  (4/5)  I predicted Lady Gaga (House of Gucci) over Penelope Cruz (Parallel Mothers)


SUPPORTING ACTOR:  (3/5)  I predicted Bradley Cooper (Licorice Pizza) and Jared Leto (House of Gucci) over Jesse Plemons (The Power of the Dog) and J.K. Simmons (Being the Ricardos)


SUPPORTING ACTRESS:  (3/5)  I predicted Caitriona Balfe (Belfast) and Ruth Negga (Passing) over Judi Dench (Belfast) and Jessie Buckley (The Lost Daughter) - these were real shockers.


ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY:  (4/5)  I always miss one in each screenplay category - I predicted Being the Ricardos over The Worst Person in the World, which literally no one predicted.


ADAPTED SCREENPLAY:  (4/5)  I predicted West Side Story over Dune


- - - - - - -

SO:  I got 34/45 in the top 8 categories - which was perfectly par.

Of the 30 "experts" at Gold Derby, 11 beat me, 7 tied, and 12 did worse.

Aight, I'll settle for that! :)
