The Felixes

Or, the Anti-Oscars.TM

Best Director 2005

George Clooney for Good Night, and Good Luck

PRO: Academy always loves it when pretty-boy actor shows he has a serious side.

CON: Seems cold compared to period pieces Quiz Show and Far from Heaven; would a little color have killed anybody?

Paul Haggis for Crash

PRO: Coming off breakthrough screenwriting triumph Million Dollar Baby; Hollywood loves movies about Los Angeles and are familiar with traffic problems.

CON: Racial issues a sore point since death of UPN.

Ang Lee for Brokeback Mountain

PRO: Makes people forget The Hulk.

CON: People remember The Hulk.

Bennett Miller for Capote

PRO: Finally, a bio-pic where the lead doesn't sing.

CON: Newcomer (his only previous film is a documentary about a tour guide) might get bruised by veteran competition.

Steven Spielberg for Munich

PRO: Gripping emotional rollercoaster; Munich better than original title, Schindler's List II: The Revenge

CON: Not as good a title as Saving Private Ryan II: The Revenge
