More bad news for "J. Edgar." On top of Clint Eastwood's biopic about FBI dragon J. Edgar Hoover reaping only 41% at RottenTomatoes, it just fell off of Gold Derby's poll of Oscar Experts predicting Best Picture. Just two weeks ago, "J. Edgar" ranked fifth in the poll.

Over the past two weeks, "The Tree of Life" climbed one spot, and "Midnight in Paris" and "The Help" jumped up three positions.
