For our newest round of Oscars predix, we made things tougher on our prophets. Instead of asking them merely to give us five films they believe will be nominated in the top three races, we asked them to rank each entry 1 (most likely to win) to 5. The result: "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "Slumdog Millionaire" each got two votes for best pic; "The Dark Knight" reaped one. Leading the acting races with three votes each: Frank Langella ("Frost/Nixon") and Meryl Streep ("Doubt").

Joining me in making daredevil predix: Thelma Adams (Us Weekly), Edward Douglas (ComingSoon.net), Dave Karger (Entertainment Weekly) and Susan Wloszczyna (USA Today).
