No mistake here, Sean S. is an Oscar winner.
Not only was Sean ranked #1 for accuracy and #2 for total points in PTF’s Predict The Oscars Tournament, he even beat out expert Ben Zauzmer (#10 accuracy) and more than 5,000 other Futurists.
With this pedigree, we sat down with him to find out some of his secrets…
Location: Las Vegas, Nevada
Occupation: UPS Warehouse Worker
Fun Facts: The only movie from the awards I have seen is Arrival. I also have a 1 and a half year old girl with another girl on the way in a month! Also, my wife had my mom as her first grade teacher (we found this out on our first date!)
Congratulations! You had the most accurate predictions in our Predict The Oscars Tournament. How does it feel?
Feels pretty surprising! I don’t know the total amount of players but I feel like This something to actually brag about! Haha. Maybe I should go play the lotto…I must have the magic touch!
What was your process for making a prediction on the multiple choice questions?
I tried to go with the favorites for the most part. I almost picked Denzel Washington to win over Casey Affleck for best actor but changed my mind at the last minute. I am just mad I missed the best picture! Almost a perfect score!
And what was your process for making a prediction on the numerical questions?
I tried to use the hints as best as I could for these, that and lots of Googling! 😉 I remember for the total number of #Oscars tweets one it said how many had tweeted for the Grammys, and I knew the Oscars would be more popular so I guessed based on that.
Awesome. Last question: what everyday PTF questions do you enjoy playing the most, and why?
It’s always tough when a question has such a wide answer range or just random luck involved so I tend to like the twitter and stock questions the best ATM. I feel like there is actually some base to go off of on those to help you get a pretty close answer.
