Full List of 2010 Oscar Winners

Every year since 1998, we've been asking The Numbers readers to predict who will win at the annual Academy Awards. The vote totals have proved to be remarkably accurate at predicting the Oscar winners, and this year 15 out of the 24 categories turned out as predicted, including all the acting awards. The biggest miss was Best Picture, where The Hurt Locker was just pipped by Avatar among our readers, but turned out to be the big winner on the night. Our lifetime score in the Best Picture category is now ten out of thirteen. With Up winning as expected for Best Animated Feature, the contest has now predicted eight out of nine winners in that category.

Outside of the minor categories, the overall prediction rate was hit by The Hurt Locker's unexpected wins in the sound categories and two slightly surprising results for original and adapted screenplays.

Here's the complete list of this 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.
