This mini-site has charts on top 8 Oscar categories, tabulated from the predictions of Oscarwatch.com forum members. Rankings are based on the percentage of participators that predicted a nomination for a film/performance. For example, all members that participated in the third round predicted a Best Supporting Actor  nomination for Tim Robbins, hence the 100% rating. Not very scientific, yes, but it for sure gives a very good idea about the current Oscar buzz.
