Gold Derby Goes All In for Roma to Win Best Pic — But What Will Be the Biggest Surprises?

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.

Update: ABC debunks the idea, says it's absolutely false.  The Guardian is reporting that people have been discussing Whoopi Goldberg as the possible Oscar host. 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?
