Full List of 2004 Oscar Winners

Every year since 1998, we've been asking you to predict who will win at the annual Academy Awards. And now, for the 7th year running, you've correctly predicted the all-important Best Picture Winner. Add to that a 3rd-straight correct call on Best Animated Feature (every year since the category was introduced), and the site readership is 10 for 10 in major predictions.

This year we did even better than usual, correctly predicting 20 out of 24 winners, with 3 of the misses coming in documentary and short film categories. The only major mistake was predicting Best Actor for Johnny Depp - definitely a popular favorite, but he clearly didn't get Academy voters behind him in quite the same way.

Here's the complete list of last year's Oscar winners, along with the percentage of Numbers readers who predicted they would win in our Predict the Academy Awards competition.

Lines in bold below indicate where our predictions where spot on.

We're currently running the numbers on the competition. We'll announce results tomorrow. It's too early to be sure, but it looks as though you'll have had to predicted a lot of winners to be in with a chance.
