Congratulations to our User Max for a great score of 57.14% when predicting the 2019 Directors Guild Awards winners on Saturday. He is actually tied with 24 other people at that percentage but has a better point score total of 12,834 by using the 500 super bets wisely.
Over 1,400 people worldwide predicted these three film and four TV winners in a total of seven categories chosen by DGA voters. The ceremony was held in Hollywood and was hosted by Aisha Tyler. Our top scorer had four of the seven categories correct: “Roma” (feature film), “Barry” (comedy series), “Escape at Dannemora” (limited series) and “Saturday Night Live” (variety). He missed on “Eighth Grade” (first-time director), “Three Identical Strangers” (documentary) and “Succession” (drama series).
