The Gurus 'O Gold jury of 14 Oscar prognosticators have weighed in on the top movies, actors and animated films so far in the Oscar race. Here's how it looks with at least four major movies (*) sight unseen. (BTW, I meant to include Up, which naturally leads the animation pack, in my top twelve.) George Clooney leads the actors, while Carey Mulligan Meryl Streep is the top contender among the actresses. UPDATE: Since November 4, MCN added votes which pushed Streep into the lead, by one point.
