The trailers at the movieplex this weekend were one long menu for the upcoming smorgasbord of Oscar bait. And even though many of these films haven't opened yet -- and it's barely October -- we already have our first round of Oscar predictions!

The Envelope, another awards-show blog, has a chart of early predictions up now, pooling the opinions of seven different entertainment pundits.

No surprise: This early, the only conclusion to be reached is just "how wide open the top races are." Two women begin to stand out as contenders for best actress, though: Kate Winslet for "Revolutionary Road" and Angelina Jolie for "Changeling." And get ready for the comeback of Mickey Rourke for his already much talked-about role in "The Wrestler."

I sure hope Mickey Rourke wins this year. He's a great actor and hasn't won an award yet. This should be his year.
