Kate Winslet will win this year

You heard it here first. Even though (and especially because) Mirren is the 12-1 favorite. There are 27 days til voting closes -- a solid month for that kind of frontrunning to backfire. In other news, DZ Oscar Pool ballots will be available tomorrow.

Oh, how I so want her to win. Almost as much as I want to win the DZ oscar pool.

Very interesting.

I actually think the Best Actress race is the one with the greatest potential for upset...

Interesting....

I'll say. It all makes sense to me. Everyone loves Mirren, but they also love Winslet. They've nominated her five times in 12 years. Little Children obviously has decent support. And it's a tricky role that she pulls off beautifully. I think Streep will siphon some serious votage from Mirren -- enough to tilt things in Winslet's favor by only a handful of votes. It'll be embarrassing and grand.

(Of course, I'm the one who picked Cheadle and Staunton over Foxx and Swank.)
