IT’S ALL OVER, FOLKS! What a mix-up at the end of the night! We were freaking out! In case you didn’t see, La La Land had been announced the Best Picture winner, only to be told a few minutes later that there was a mistake. Moonlight was the real winner! And guess what? 2.7% of you were all-star prognosticators and predicted it to win! WOW! You guys beat all the experts! 😉
Casey Affleck and Ryan Gosling were head-to-head in Best Actor predictions for a good week. However, 34.8% of PTF Players were right in predicting that Casey would win the Oscar!
Pat yourselves on the back because PTF Players predicted the outcome of Hollywood’s Biggest Night!
The winners will be announced tomorrow! Goodnight!

PTF’s Brittni has been trying to watch all the Best Picture nominees before the big show, and though she predicts that La La Land will take home the trophy, she really wishes that it would go to Hidden Figures! She still has yet to watch Moonlight though! 😉 Aaaand…as of right now, Moonlight has only 2.7% of the predictions.

It’s officially one week before the Oscars! The percentages haven’t fluctuated much, and Ryan Gosling is holding onto the top spot for PTF Best Actor predictions. At this rate, the only question in people’s minds is how many Oscars will La La Land actually win? It has 14 nominations, which ties it with 2 other movies for most Oscar nominations in history!
[Feb. 18 at 12:00 PM EST]
Ryan Gosling did it! He overtook Casey Affleck for Best Actor predictions. This is at odds with all of the experts listed, but we think our Futurists know what they’re talking about! He did win this year’s Golden Globe for Best Actor, after all!
[Feb. 17 at 3:00 PM EST]
Another day, another prediction update! PTF Futurists are making their predictions, but the nominees in the PTF column haven’t changed yet. There seems to be a consensus…except for Best Actor! Now, only .1% of predictions separates Casey Affleck from Ryan Gosling!
[Feb. 16 at 1:30 PM EST]
The race between Casey Affleck and Ryan Gosling for Best Actor is getting even tighter (Gosling now has 36.9% of the predictions), while the divide between Best Actress nominees gets even wider! Emma Stone is the clear front-runner there with 73.7% of the predictions so far!
[Feb. 15 at 4:30 PM EST]
The first day of predictions is wrapping up, and many of our Futurists agree with the experts (and everyone else) that La La Land will clean up at the Oscars! The only category that seems up in the air at this point is Best Actor. 38.9% of our Futurists think the Oscar will go to Casey Affleck, while 36.8% think it will go to Ryan Gosling! Unlike Variety and AwardsCircuit.com, only 16.7% of our Futurists think it will go to Denzel. One thing is for sure, however, we’re really excited to find out the result on the 26th!
