I had been thinking that betting Brokeback for Best Picture would be nearly as safe as betting on the onset of summer, but 1/6 is pretty steep. Were I a betting man, I might put down just a bit on Heath Ledger at 9/2.
No serious surprises, as far as I can see. It’s a fair enough job when the best picture noms include two of my probable top five. Should have my 2005 top ten prepared by the end of the week, although I still have to see Munich and Match Point.
