- he’s George Clooney
- an almost flawless reputation
- Michael Clayton was critically acclaimed. Word is George wants a Best Actor trophy and he isn’t above asking for one.
- he the second solo two time winner, if there is ever going to be a first three time winner, George is the other likely choice
- there has never been a back to back winner. George is an excellent candidate to earn that distinction.
- he will never have a baby. And there is a currently a baby craze. The MiniVan goes crazy for marriage and for pregnancy and he has pretty much pissed on both institutions.
- he dates floozies.
- he has won twice already…do they need to give it to him a third time, and back to back at that?
Odds: 5 to 1
