To no one's surprise, it so far looks like "Brokeback Mountain" is a shoo-in for major nominations (as are "Capote," "Good Night, and Good Luck" and "Crash"), and "Munich" is a virtual shut-out (except for Steven Spielberg's DGA nomination -- shades of "The Color Purple" in 1985). Here are the guild nominees so far:
"Brokeback Mountain" "Capote" "Crash" "Good Night, and Good Luck" "Walk the Line"
