84th Oscar Best Picture Updates (4/25/11)

EDITORS NOTE: These predictions were made in April 2011 and reflect what my thinking was at that time.  I have updated my predictions since then, but leave these on the blog for a historical record. For the most updated list of predictions, go to the Tracker Pages in the upper right hand corner of this blog.

I’ve updated the rankings for the 84th Best Picture race. One change that I will be incorporating into this and future predictions is that movies with release dates that are in question (like J. Edgar, Carnage and Extremely Loud And Incredibly Close) will be listed in the rankings for both years. Here are today’s rankings, with previous ranking shown in parenthesis after each entry.
