All of the major pundits at Gold Derby are 100% in for Roma. That is quite a stronghold. Either they will all be right or all be wrong, but when that many jump on a bandwagon, does that make it too big to fail? Possibly. I think what's going on is that no one knows what is going to win (because no one can possibly know) and Roma seems like the safest bet.

For the past several days we've seen our good and clever friends here at Awards Daily make their best stabs at predicting this insanely unpredictable year, with hundreds of projections about the way things may come down Sunday night. Let's collect all those keen predictions in one post, to get everyone on record in a single all-embracing place. For the final stretch, our pal JasonMovieGuy has put together this glamorous video to inspire you. (Even if bits of it infuriate you.

Have you filled out your ballot? Our indispensable ballot meister Dr. Rob has generously extended the deadline for a final 24 hours. Voting will close Thursday, 10pm PST. It’s all come down to this. Here’s our final ballot. As Rob says: "We want to know what you think is best. We are not asking what you think will win. That will be handled over at The Awards Daily Predict The Oscars contest. We want you to say what you think is best." Thanks so much for participating.

If so, and if they're planning on springing this on the Oscar audience, are they hoping that word will travel fast on Twitter, blow up, and then blow up the ratings? Or are they spreading the news this way, feeding it out into the collective? Or is it completely wrong. No one knows for sure. So why wouldn't they publicize it? The Guardian brings up the — wait for it — "problematic" original...
