If the huffy pronouncements of Oscar pundits at the Venice and Telluride Film Festivals are correct, then "Albert Nobbs," "Carnage" and "A Dangerous Method" are no longer frontrunners in the Best Picture derby. They still contend in other races like acting, but let's stay focused just on the top contest now. Here's how it is shaping up.
