The supporting acting races favor "The King's Speech" players Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter according to the latest batch of Oscarologists polled by Gold Derby: Tim Appelo (Hollywood Reporter), Michael Musto (Village Voice), Kevin Polowy (NextMovie), Keith Simanton (IMDB), Anne Thompson (Thompson on Hollywood, Indie Wire) and Susan Wloszczyna (USA Today).

While all of these pundits predict that Colin Firth ("The King's Speech") will reign as Best Actor, their support for Rush and Carter is less solid, leaving room for contenders like Christian Bale ("The Fighter") and Jacki Weaver ("Animal Kingdom") to eventually prevail.

Yesterday, we revealed their rankings for Best Picture, Director, Actor and Actress. Also check out the views of our first batch of pundits here. And see the racetrack odds based upon those predix here.
