Experts predict the Oscars' best picture derby: 'Avatar,' 'Hurt Locker,' 'Inglourious Basterds' ...

Inglourious basterds 9

Since "The Hurt Locker" swept the New York and L.A. film critics' awards and "Avatar" got nominated by the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards and swept the box office, they're both picking up prophets' support in Oscar's best-picture race. However, I still remain the only pundit on the planet forecasting the big win for "Inglourious Basterds" as this contest really heats up. Below are the conflicting views of Ed Douglas (Comingsoon.net), Pete Hammond (Notes on a Season, The Envelope), Dave Karger (Entertainment Weekly), Michael Musto (Village Voice), Richard Rushfield (Gawker) and me, ranked according to likelihood to win. See pundits' predix for best actor and best actress.
