Experts' Oscars predix: 'Slumdog Millionaire' and Meryl Streep out front

December 19, 2008 |  9:56 am

Oscars_predix_slumdog_millionaire_2

The Envelope's Buzzmeter has constantly updated Oscars predictions from experts, but I like to spotlight a few now and then to see how they compare. This random sampling of five views shows "Slumdog Millionaire" ahead for best picture by a score of 3 out of 5 votes. Meryl Streep ("Doubt") has the same edge in the best actress race, but there's no clear fave for best actor. Frank Langella ("Frost/Nixon") and Sean Penn ("Milk") have two votes each.

Our featured pundits: Patrick Kevin Day (The Envelope, L.A. Times), Scott Feinberg (Feinberg Files, The Envelope), Peter Howell (Toronto Star), Bob Tourtellotte (Reuters), Susan Wloszczyna (USA Today). Rankings are listed numerically from first choice (1) to last choice (5).

If someone can answer is that Sally Hawkins, maintained or is out
chance of being nominated for an oscar
after the snub of SAG?

I think Scott Feinberg has it right. Bob Tourtellote, not so much.
