Predicted Oscar Winners
The Numbers' annual Oscar polls have proved to be remarkably accurate predictors of

We call results based on the hundreds of Numbers readers who vote in our
Predict the Oscars competition.
We've received all the votes now, and are ready to make predictions in all categories.
Percentage figures are the percentage of Numbers readers who believe a movie or performance
will win in a particular category.
They are a rough guide to how likely a particular movie is to win in a category - for

we think Lost in Translation is, by a fraction, the most likely winner of
the Original Screenplay award.
