Steven Spielberg‘s terrorist drama Munich and Ang Lee‘s controversial Brokeback Mountain have emerged as the front runners for Best Film at the 2006 Oscars, in
the latest release from top movie industry odds site GoldDerby.com.
But O’Neill is convinced it will be Spielberg‘s movie– about the hunt for
the killers of Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympics–that will claim the big prize.
He says, “It’s the lead pony in this upcoming Oscar derby.”
Meanwhile, O’Neill and his online critics consortium, favor Tommy Lee Jones
to beat Jake Gyllenhaal (Jarhead), Heath Ledger (Brokeback Mountain), Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote) and Joaquin Phoenix‘s turn as Johnny Cash (Walk the Line) to the Best Actor prize for his role in Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada.
Theron will compete with Judi Dench (Mrs. Henderson Presents), Desperate
Housewives star Felicity Huffman (Transamerica), Diane Keaton (The Family Stone) and Ziyi Zhang (Memoirs of a Geisha) for the award.
