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?

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.
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
