Updated Oscars predictions from our experts
Check out the latest Oscar predix from our Buzzmeter panel of pro pundits. CLICK HERE, then click on "Individual Panelists' Rankings" and use the dated drop-down menu to switch back and forth between last week and now so you can note how fickle we all are.
First, checking out the roundup views of the top categories: Tommy Lee Jones ("In the Valley of Elah") kicks Tom Hanks ("Charlie Wilson's War") out of the number five slot for best actor. Promo around the DVD release of "A Mighty Heart" helps Angelina Jolie arrive on the best-actress list.
Indidvidual predix: EW's Dave Karger is unfazed by the gangbusters impact "American Gangster" just had on the box office. His top five ranking for best picture remains the same. Variety's Anne Thompson moved up "Gangster" from her fourth to second notch. "E.T.'s" Clay Smith rams it up to the top of his list, booting "Sweeney Todd." Speaking of "Sweeney," I was happy to see it emerge midway in Kris Tapley's list. Smart move, Kris!
