Oscars predictions from 18 top experts

By Tom O’Neil at GoldDerby.com

hollywoodnews.com: “The Social Network” has picked up a bit more support in the Best Picture race among the 18 experts predicting the Oscars for Gold Derby.

Most Oscars pundits (by a slight margin) bet on “The King’s Speech” to win Best Picture — for several good reasons. It’s the kind of stylish historical drama that’s reigned in the past. It’s probably going to have the most nominations thanks to those crafts categories for costumes and art direction. And people really, really love it because it rips their hearts in half. All excellent arguments. (See a rundown of all experts’ predix pooled by Gold Derby here; racetrack odds here.)

But I’m stubbornly sticking by “The Social Network” because voters haven’t been picking traditional faves recently. They’ve chosen gritty fare (“No Country for Old Men,” “Slumdog Millionaire,” “The Hurt Locker”) being led by the New York and L.A. film critics awards, which announce their next batches of winners on Sunday, Dec. 12, (Angelenos) and Monday, Dec. 13 (Gothamites). “Social Network” is more to their taste.
