Predicted Oscar Winners - 2007
The Numbers' annual Oscar polls have proved to be remarkably accurate predictors of
the final results on Oscar night.
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
example, we're pretty certain Helen Mirren will win the Best Actress award, while
The Departed is the narrowest of favorites for Best Picture.
Overall, as expected, this year's predictions suggest that the awards will be spread far and wide
among the nominees.
Dreamgirls is predicted to win the
most awards, but with a very modest total of four, including Best Song and Sound Mixing, as well
as supporting actor awards for Eddie Murphy
and Jennifer Hudson.
The Departed is tipped to win in three
major categories: Best Picture, Directing and Adapted Screenplay.
If it does so, it will most likely be hailed as the champion on the night.
In total, thirteen different feature-length movies are predicted to win at least one Oscar, which would
make this one of the most varied Oscar nights in history.
However, with many of the predicted wins coming from movies with only 30-40% of our votes, we can
expect a lot of surprises on the night.
