Some thoughts: Brokeback Mountain still seems to be the strong Oscar  front runner for Best Picture and Best Director, although the acting categories seem a bit more interesting. It is good to see Phoenix and Witherspoon recognised for their sterling work in Walk The Line and I think they will both be strong candidates come Oscar time. However, it is worth remembering that the Globes (especially with the Drama / Comedy or Musical split) often throw up misleading signals.

My gut feelings (at the moment anyway) for the major categories at the Oscars are:

> Best Picture: Brokeback Mountain
> Best Actor: Philip Seymour Hoffman or Heath Ledger
> Best Actress: Reese Witherspoon
> Best Director: Ang Lee
> Best Supporting Actor: George Clooney
> Best Supporting Actress: Rachel Weisz

On Sunday, March 5th you can see just how wrong I was! ๐Ÿ˜‰
