Who's your pick to win an Academy Award? 

The Oscars are coming up on Sunday, and participants in a CBS News poll are favoring Matthew McConaughey for the Best Actor prize.  The Dallas Buyers Club star has 36% of the vote -- and a healthy lead over Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street, who's getting nods from 22%.  Eighteen percent feel Bruce Dern deserves the honor for his work in Nebraska.  Chiwetel Ejiofor from 12 Years A Slave and Christian Bale from American Hustle are each getting nods from fewer than 15%. 

The competition is much tighter in the Best Actress poll.  Blue Jasmine star Cate Blanchett leads the list with support from 25%.  But 23% feel Judi Dench earned the honor with her performance in Philomena.  She's just edging out Gravity star Sandra Bullock, who's drawing a nod from 22%.  Twenty percent like Amy Adams' in American Hustle the best.  Only Meryl Streep -- who holds the record for the most Best Actress nominations -- doesn't appear to have made much of an impression.  Just 10% believe she should get the award for August: Osage County.

Who will win?! Check out coverage and updates from the awards this weekend, right here.
