While Oprah Winfrey is locked in a battle at the Oscars with "12 Years a Slave" newcomer Lupita Nyongo, she is certain to win the Supporting Actress Golden Globe for her scene-stealing performance in "The Butler."

All nine of our Experts agree that Winfrey -- who lost this race in 1985 for her film debut in "The Color Purple" to Meg Tilly ("Agnes of God") -- will prevail this time around.

Seven of our nine Experts have Nyongo in second place: Thelma Adams (Yahoo), Edward Douglas (Comingsoon), Thom Geier (Entertainment Weekly), Tariq Khan (Fox News), Michael Musto (Out),   Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby) and Keith Simanton (IMDb)

Tom O'Neil (Gold Derby) has Jennifer Lawrence ("American Hustle") in the runner-up position ahead of Nyongo while Peter Travers (Rolling Stone) has both June Squibb ("Nebraska") and Margo Martindale ("August: Osage County") in front of Nyongo.

All of this support gives Winfrey leading odds of 3/2 while Nyongo has odds of 9/2. In third place at 8/1 is Globes darling Julia Roberts for her sizeable supporting part in "August: Osage County" while Lawrence is in fourth at 12/1 and both Martindale and Squibb have odds of 20/1.
