How I did, and how I racked up against the Gold Derby experts
PICTURE: (6/8) I predicted Ma Rainey and One Night in Miami over The Father and The Sound of Metal.
DIRECTOR: (4/5) I predicted Aaron Sorkin (Trial of the Chicago 7) over Thomas Vinterberg (Another Round) - well that came out of left field!
ACTOR: (5/5) Nailed it!
ACTRESS: (5/5) Nailed it!
SUPPORTING ACTOR: (4/5) I predicted Chadwick Boseman (Da 5 Bloods) over Lakeith Stanfield (Judas and the Black Messiah), despite the latter being the straight-up lead of that movie.
SUPPORTING ACTRESS: (5/5) Nailed it!
ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY: (4/5) I always miss one in each screenplay category - I predicted Mank over Judas.
ADAPTED SCREENPLAY: (4/5) I predicted Ma Rainey over The White Tiger.

SO: I got 36/43 in the top 8 categories - and while that isn't outstanding on its own, ZERO out of 30 "experts" on Gold Derby did better, and only one even tied me - the rest did worse!
