Nancy Johnson of Rochester said she liked both "The Aviator" and "Ray" but predicted that "Ray" will win best picture.

Keith Jeter of Rochester said he hadn't seen any of the best picture nominees but picked "Ray" because "it just looks like a good movie, the best one on the list."

Marilyn Carpenter of Spring Valley said she wants "Finding Neverland" to win.

Laura Flatden of Spring Valley, who picked "Ray," said she was surprised "Sideways" was nominated for best picture. "It was interesting," she said, "but I didn't think it had the caliber of an Oscar nominee."
