OSCARS PREDIX: Hey, Meryl Streep — Watch out for Kate Winslet!

November 11, 2008 | 11:55 am

"The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," "Slumdog Millionaire" and "The Dark Knight" assume the win, place and show positions in the Oscars' race for best picture, according to our latest batch of prognosticators: Brad Brevet (Rope of Silicon), Anthony Breznican (USA Today), Peter Howell (Toronto Star), Mark Olsen (The Envelope), Jeffrey Sneider (The Insneider, contributor to Variety), Kris Tapley (InContention.com) and Tom Tapp (TheDailyBeast.com).

Tied for first place in the best actor race with two votes each are Frank Langella ("Frost/Nixon"), Sean Penn ("Milk") and Mickey Rourke ("The Wrestler"). Meryl Streep ("Doubt") remains ahead in the actress' contest, but Kate Winslet ("Revolutionary Road") has gained so much momentum in recent days that she's in solid second place, bumping Anne Hathaway ("Rachel Getting Married").

Compare these predix to others we pooled recently from other Oscar seers HERE, HERE and HERE.

DiCaprio only deserved it for Gilbert Grape out of those films. And best actor is the most strongly contested category this year so he has no hope. Winslet is the stand-out in Rev Road. Executioner's Gong has a different take on the predictions: http://executionersgong.blogspot.com/

Slumdog Millionaire has definite Best Picture potential. With the love it's received from critics and fans alike, Curious Case of Benjamin Button ought to be a little worried - it's not a lock for sure!

won't there be a buzzmeter this year??

Will it ever be the time when Leonardo Dicaprio is finally the front runner in the oscar race? What's Eating gilbert grape, titanic, departed, blood diamond.... he has long deserved the award.

Sarah Jessica parker for Sex and the city has got to be included on this list. She delivers a powerhouse performance -- very dramatic and moving.
