You didn't tabulate my score either. I ended tied for fourth with 20 points.

One of these days I'll learn not to put runner-ups in...I would have won!

You didn't tabulate my predictions.

I will aim not to be cynical about that. :)

I have 16 points. I would have had 21 had I not done runner ups.

THE RESULTS!!!

The correct answer to the tie-breaking bonus question is, as far as I know, THREE. (Denzel, Leo and Sly). Do correct me if I'm wrong. With that in mind here are the results which includes the three-point bonus:

Big Magilla = 12 points
dws1982, Heksagon and nightwingnova = 15 points
anonymous1980, Sabin, criddic3 and Snick's Guy = 17 points
Precious Doll, Oscar Guy, The Original BJ and Aceisgreat = 18 points
mlrg = 19 points
CalWilliam and flip525 = 20 points
FilmFan720 and ITALIANO = 22 points
Jefforey Smith = 24 points

and the winner of this year's Golden Globes predictions contest with a whopping 25 points is...

Mister Tee!

Take a bow! :)

Oh shit, I'm sorry. I was supposed to predict the winners. My bad.
