With the Oscars just hours away, A Beautiful Mind remains the frontrunner to take home best picture of the year, according to the experts at GoldDerby.com. Mind is also favored to win for best director (Ron Howard), best supporting actress (Jennifer Connelly) and best adapted screenplay. Denzel Washington (Training Day) holds a slim edge over Mind man Russell Crowe in the best actor race, and Sissy Spacek (In the Bedroom) and Halle Berry (Monster's Ball) are running neck-and-neck among best actress contenders. Ian McKellen, meanwhile, is considered a sure thing to snag supporting actor honors for The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. The Oscars air Sunday at 8 pm/ET live on ABC.
