Mathematically I guess he does have a greater chance but the question was "who do you think will be the first to a second Oscar?" I"m still going with Affleck.
Matt Damon deserved a best actor nomination for his work in The Good Shepherd. He may even deserved to have won. I think it's more worthy than Forest Whitaker's performance in The Last King Scotland.
