Gurus o’ Gold: Frontrunners & Potential Upsetters

This week, The Gurus offer their weekly look at the Top Ten and then, a look at the category frontrunners and potential upsets.

A “1″ is a vote for a frontrunner and is worth 10 points. A “*” is the vote for an upsetter and is worth 1 point. Gurus also had the option of voting for “none” or “multiple” in the upsetter category.

In the 10 categories being voted for, 5 frontrunners got a perfect score… but still, “none” is not the leading answer to potential upsetters in only the Animated Feature category.
