The nominations for the 18th annual Screen Actors Guild awards were announced this morning, the awards will be given out Sunday January 29th on TNT at 8pm EST/5pm PST.
NO Ryan Gosling, not one nomination, the man was in three major movies this summer, he showed depth and range and he couldn’t get one nod. But they had plenty of time to nominate 2 foreign dudes. Really!!!!
Maybe the Golden Globes will come thru, or even the Oscars, but that is soooo political and Ryan doesn’t play the kissy face Hollywood game.
Remember the SAG’s, unlike the Oscars are only voted on by actors, so predicting the winners is more about rewarding the craft of acting then playing politics.
Male Actor in a leading role (film)
2 Foreign dudes, whatever
George Clooney for The Descendants – I haven’t seen this one yet, but I have heard nothing but great things about George’s performance.
Brad Pitt – Moneyball – I saw this and I must saw this is one of Pitt’s finest performances, it’s a master class on being not acting.
Leonardo DiCaprio – J. Edgar – I saw this, and he was incredible, but his performance was weighed down by that horrible script.
Prediction – If they don’t go with a foreign dude, I say Pitt should go home a winner.
Female Actor in a leading role (film)
Glenn Close – Albert Nobbs – Didn’t see it, I heard she impersonates a man.
Viola Davis – The Help – I saw this, and she was magnificent. If she doesn’t win, I will be very disappointed
Meryl Streep – The Iron Lady – She is the great one, so I am sure she is magnificent, but come on Viola needs some love.
Tilda Swinton – We Need To Talk About Kevin – ah no
Michelle Williams – she is a few more nominations away from her win
Prediction – Viola Davis
Ensemble Nomination (Film) – its kind of like Best Picture
The Artist – enough already with this movie, you know it is going to be nominated for an Oscar.
Bridesmaids – Totally shocked at this one. You go girls.
The Descendants – We know, deep family tragedy, blah blah
The Help – Please let these ladies get there due.
Midnight in Paris – Clever, but come on Owen Wilson was in it.
Prediction – The Help
Some of my favorite nominations
Nick Nolte for Warrior
Octavia Spencer for The Help (I hope she wins)
Jessica Lange for American Horro Story (I hope she wins)
Kyra Sedgwick for The Closer, the show is going off the air, she can be nominated next year for the episodes airing this summer, but it would be nice if she won. Julianna Margulies has won enough already.
Not a single nomination for Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
Nothing for Hugo
Bryce Dallas Howard was not nominated for The Help
Connie Britton and Taissa Farmiga were not nominated for American Horror Story
Kathy Bates for Harry’s Law
Christine Baranski was not nominated
Patrick J. Adams from Suits was nominated. This is a great show, USA was must be so psyched one of their actors got nominated.
