In just a few days a lot of the mystery looming over the Oscar Best Picture race will finally be zapped. We Oscar bloggers will get to see the following front-runners: "Les Miserables" (Nov. 24), "Zero Dark Thirty" (Nov. 25), "Django Unchained" (Nov. 29 or thereabouts) and "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" (Nov. 30).

Meantime, we're all throwing darts in the dark, but, hey, the suspense is fun and we might hit actually the target with our relentless prognosticating. Here's where we stand with all that.

EXPERTS' VIEWS: "Argo" leads Gold Derby's poll of 26 experts with 12 votes, followed by "Les Miserables" (6), "Zero Dark Thirty" (3), "Lincoln" (3), "Silver Linings Playbook" (1) and "Life of Pi" (1).

EDITORS' VIEWS: Our editors are split thus – 5 for "Argo," 3 for "Les Miserables."

USERS' VIEWS: "Lincoln" leads with 11/2 odds, followed by "Les Miserable" (6/1), "Argo" (6/1), "The Master" (8/1) and "Silver Linings Playbook" (12/1).
