"Argo," according to voting by moviegoers on BlockbusterAwards.com, an interactive website designed for people to host, manage and participate in a fantasy league celebrating the Academy Awards.

The balloting continues on the the site, with "Argo" leading the best picture race (39 percent to 22 percent for the second-place "Lincoln"). Other Oscar front-runners: actor, Daniel Day-Lewis, "Lincoln," 67 percent; actress, Jennifer Lawrence, "Silver Linings Playbook," 47 percent; supporting actor, Tommy Lee Jones, "Lincoln," 32 percent; supporting actress, Anne Hathaway, "Les Miserables," 68 percent (thus robbing runner-up Sally Field of the chance to admit yet once again "I guess you really like me.")

The Oscars of course are Sunday night (starting at 7 p.m. on ABC), and fans still have a chance to sign up and join or host a league for free at blockbusterawards.com. Or cast a ballot for gentle Ben Affleck (above, at the Oscar nominees luncheon earlier this month), the director-producer-star of "Argo," who though snubbed in the best director category, may walk away with the top prize Sunday, after all.
