Nominations Scoreboard

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

PICTURE:  I got a full 9/9 - only my second perfect Best Picture score since they expanded beyond just 5; it's hard to do, so I'm proud! (Though half of the 32 experts at Gold Derby did the same...)

 

DIRECTOR:  (4/5) I predicted Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit) over Todd Phillips (Joker) - can't believe Joker did as well as it did!!!!  Ugh, so dumb.  Jojo forever... 

 

ACTOR:  (4/5)  I predicted Taron Egerton (Rocketman), as most did (sad to see him excluded).  I missed Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes), who only about two experts predicted - but I'm DELIGHTED to see him land a nomination for this very deserving performance, and it's his first nod!

 

ACTRESS:  (4/5)  I predicted Awkwafina (The Farewell), as did most.  I missed Cynthia Erivo (Harriet), which many predicted, though fewer than half.

 

SUPPORTING ACTOR:  (5/5)  Nailed it!!  Most were predicting Song Kang-ho (Parasite) over Anthony Hopkins (The Two Popes), but I knew Hopkins would land in here - he was just exquisite.

 

SUPPORTING ACTRESS:  (4/5)  I predicted Jennifer Lopez (Hustlers), as did almost everyone.  Instead, Kathy Bates (Richard Jewell) scored a nod, only prognosticated by two experts (who each missed one or two other nominees).  This is the most absurd snub & nomination of the day.

 

ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY:  (4/5)  I predicted The Farewell, as did most.  I missed 1917, which many predicted (but fewer than half).

 

ADAPTED SCREENPLAY:  (4/5)  I predicted A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, which almost half predicted.  Instead, Joker landed in, which slightly more than half predicted - I just couldn't bring myself to believe that that movie would be acknowledged for its writing, but... there ya go :/

SO:  I got 38/44 in the top 8 categories - solid work, if I may say so! :)

Out of 32 experts, I beat 22, 2 tied me, and 6 beat me.

Bravo, me!
