Four of these Oscar pundits -- Brad Brevet (Rope of Silicon), Mark Olsen (The Envelope), Anne Thompson (Indie Wire) and Peter Travers (Rolling Stone) -- predict Mark Boal will win the original screenplay Academy Award for "The Hurt Locker." Both Erik Davis (Cinematical) and I think Quentin Tarantino will prevail for scripting "Inglorious Basterds." See experts' predictions of the best actor race here, best actress race here, best supporting actor here, best supporting actress here and best picture here. Contenders are ranked according to their likelihood of winning.
