Last night’s SAG awards were the first time during their guild run that The Artist didn’t win. They weren’t expected to win, mind you but Kris Tapley and I thought at the last minute The Artist’s ensemble win might signal an early sweep of the Oscars, as it did with Slumdog Millionaire....
Final SAG predictions and a No Guts, No Glory — up to three only please!
My problem is this: I don’t think The Artist is going to go home empty handed tonight. So, if The Help is going to win ensemble, Jean Dujardin is going to win Best Actor. The King’s Speech and Slumdog Millionaire both won SAG ensemble. Therefore, my final predictions are:
The actors will chime in with their favorites this Sunday when the Screen Actors Guild awards unfurl. We can expect little surprises, I’m guessing,...
Right after the SAG noms, EW’s Dave Karger, who has been predicting The Artist to win since very early in the season, tweeted out “bad...

My three are:
1. Harry Potter for ensemble
2. Drive for ensemble
3. Demian Bechir for Best Actor
There seem to be three things that drive the actors to choose performances for the SAG awards, which will announce tomorrow bright and early, 6am Pacific – Performance, popularity, notoriety/reputation. The big question for tomorrow will be whether voters will choose some of the wild cars that haven’t been showing up lately – Glenn Close in Albert Nobbs,...
The SAG schedule is already being released and my enthusiasm has yet to become fully engorged. It was left a half mile back along with my faith, hope and charity. The SAGs have a gigantic membership so they try to look moderately intelligent by only having a tiny bit of their membership (aka, closer to the Academy’s actual membership number) do the screening and...
