2004-2005 Academy Awards
Grading the Oscar Winner Predictors


The Top 18:





The standings on the left are an attempt at seeing how the Oscar winner predictors did at predicting the actual Oscar winners. This list was created with those predictors with the highest number of correctly predicted winners ranked highest. When a tie was determined, an attempt at breaking that tie was made by determining the percentage correct. When ties still existed, those ties were broken by the predictor's predicted top eight category prediction percentage. Even still, ties remain and we've attempted to list these ties in alphabetical order. We can now either stick with the ties or break them with the winner of future fist fights.

Please, keep in mind that this is by no means a scientific standing and was determined only from the 76 prediction lists featured here where you will find what is believed to be an accurate reading of the final Oscar winner predictions of these predictors. Though I've tried to remain as accurate as I can, these standings and the snapshot below may very well contain errors and miscalculations. Please send comments, corrections, updates and additions to us via our comment form.

Additionally, please see the 2003-2004 pundit chart and results.

Congratulations to all... see you next year!
