Oscars 2016: SAG Award Nominations

And now the SAG Awards. Oscar season is here, people.

These are the first awards that truly matter. BFCA was medium, the Globes were light. This is the one that will truly set the pace.

I’m already thinking about what the outliers are gonna be, and which random acting nomination Harvey Weinstein is gonna manage to get this year

Oscars 2015: 22nd Screen Actors Guild Awards

Here’s the recap of last night’s SAG Awards.

It won’t be that much in depth, since it’s one of the most boring shows to actually sit down and watch. They speed through a bunch of categories and all that really matters is the results.

I’ll hurry through the categories and then tell you what it means for the Oscar race at the bottom.

Oscars 2015: SAG Awards Preview

The SAG Awards are being given out in about four hours or something. So I figure I’ll preview those now. The list of favorite supporting male performances will go up later on. That’s not as interesting as an Oscar race.

Actually, it’s appropriate that article is going up today, since Best Supporting Actor is going to be the most interesting category of tonight’s awards. But I’ll get to that in a second.

Here’s what I’m thinking is going to happen tonight at the SAG Awards: (more…)

Oscars 2015: Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations

All right. We have our first set of nominees that matter. The SAG Awards.

A reminder — this isn’t what will be nominated. This is just what stands a good chance at being nominated. It’s what wins here that you need to watch out for.

This is based on the thousands upon thousands of members of SAG vote for. The Academy acting branch is much smaller and skews older and features more Brits. Don’t be slavishly devoted to whatever is nominated here. Because they tend to nominate weird stuff. And you have to factor into it that people who aren’t in SAG won’t be nominated here, and some films that are coming out late won’t have been seen in time.

That said, let’s see who SAG nominated this year: (more…)

Oscars 2014: SAG Awards

The SAG Awards were tonight.

They’re an important awards show, but they’re also boring as shit. They never change the format at all. They start with the boring “I’m an actor” speeches, which are so poorly written. And then they just rush through categories and make speeches about the union and stuff.

But we’re in it for the winners, so we trudge on.

Here are the winners of the 21st Screen Actors Guild Awards: (more…)

Oscars 2014: SAG Awards Predictions

Coming right on the heels of last night’s Birdman PGA win, we have the SAG Awards, which could provide a huge momentum swing in the favor of Birdman. If Birdman walks away with more than one statue tonight, then you need to really look out and see if it’s gonna take Best Director. (And more so, see which way the BAFTAs go next month. Because if they go Imitation Game, and go off the board entirely, then you’re looking at a really close race that’s firmly in the favor of Birdman.)

Anyway, the real factor tonight is going to be who wins the acting awards. As SAG has always been the best prognosticator for who is going to win the acting categories at the Oscar, since the Acting branch is the biggest branch of the Academy.

So, let’s take one last look at the categories and see who is most likely to win the awards in… oh, about thirty minutes. (more…)

Oscars 2014: Screen Actors Guild Nominations

Oh boy. The first big set of nominations are here. (And are gonna be followed almost immediately by the second.)

The SAG Awards are a big deal. Mostly because the acting branch is the biggest branch in the Academy. So whoever gets nominated here is essentially short-tracked to a nomination. It’s not completely set in stone. But it helps.

Anyway, I won’t get into too much in the intro. It’s SAG. We know them. We know how important they are.
