Harris poll: 'Crash' should win best pic

If the Oscars were decided like the People's Choice Awards used to be — by a formal polling of public opinion (now they're decided by Internet voting) — then we'd now know the winners.

A Harris Poll reveals Americans pick "Crash" for best picture, Joaquin Phoenix for best actor and Reese Witherspoon for best actress.

Only 9% of adults say they're more likely to watch the Oscar telecast because Jon Stewart is hosting; 7% say they're less likely to tune in and 84% claim that his presence makes no difference.
