Cate Blanchett, Matthew McConaughey Predicted To Win Oscars
Posted February 28th, 2014 @ 11:35am

Who's your pick to win an Academy Award?  The Oscars are coming up on Sunday, and participants in a CBS News poll are favoring Matthew McConaughey for the Best Actor prize.  The "Dallas Buyers Club" star has 36-percent of the vote -- and a healthy lead over Leonardo DiCaprio in "The Wolf of Wall Street," who's getting nods from 22-percent.  Eighteen-percent feel Bruce Dern deserves the honor for his work in "Nebraska."  Chiwetel Ejiofor from "12 Years A Slave" and Christian Bale from "American Hustle" are each getting nods from fewer than 15-percent. 

The competition is much tighter in the Best Actress poll.  "Blue Jasmine" star Cate Blanchett leads the list with support from 25-percent.  But 23-percent feel Judi Dench earned the honor with her performance in "Philomena."  She's just edging out "Gravity" star Sandra Bullock, who's drawing a nod from 22-percent.  Twenty-percent like Amy Adams' in "American Hustle" the best.  Only Meryl Streep -- who holds the record for the most Best Actress nominations -- doesn't appear to have made much of an impression.  Just ten-percent believe she should get the award for "August: Osage County."
