More predictions from around the web

Just for the hell of it, here are the supposed frontrunners for the other categories, from In Contention, The Oscar Breach, Oscar Addict, Oscar intel, and of course, me.

Every category has five sets of predicitions, except for Sound Mixing which has four.

So what do all of these obscure statistics mean? Not much, really. But if you're trnnig to come up with your own early predicitons, these numbers are as good a place to start as any.

By the way, kudos to the Oscar Addict, for being the only pundit I can find who has the balls to make predicitons for best Original Song and Documentary!
