"The Social Network" has picked up a bit more support in the Best Picture race among the 23 experts predicting the Oscars for Gold Derby. According to our latest tally, eight foresee it winning; however a majority (12) say "The King's Speech" will reign. Latest racetrack odds: 6 to 5 for "King's Speech," 8 to 5 for "Social Network."

The 10 films cited by the pundits last week for Best Picture remain the same, but "127 Hours" dropped from third to sixth place, replaced by "Inception."

Twenty-two pundits back Colin Firth ("King's Speech") for Best Actor, giving him overwhelming odds of 1 to 4 over James Franco ("127 Hours") and others. Updated odds for Best Actress: Annette Bening ("The Kids Are All Right") 6 to 5, Natalie Portman ("Black Swan") 11 to 8.

Christian Bale ("The Fighter") increased his lead enormously in his heavyweight bout over Best Supporting Actor. Last week he was backed by eight pundits; now he has 16, giving him 10 to 9 odds. Geoffrey Rush ("King's Speech") still remains in second place with four seers picking him (15 to 8 odds).

Melissa Leo ("The Fighter") increased her lead a bit in the contest for Best Supporting Actress over Helena Bonham Carter ("King's Speech"). Miranda Richardson ("Made in Dagenham") and Dianne Wiest ("Rabbit Hole") fell off our list completely, replaced by Hailie Steinfeld ("True Grit") and Amy Adams ("The Fighter").
