SAG Awards 2012 Predcitions

28 Jan

TNT will air the 2012 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards on Sunday January 29th at 8/7 central.

Here are my predictions, I select by who will win, who should win, and if applicable my dream win.

Cast in a Motion Picture  – Some people think this is the same as Best Picture. Based on SAG voting history the voters evaluate the film on the acting merits only.

The Artist


The Descendants – should win, this cast knocked it out of the park, there wasn’t a weak link among them. 

The Help – will win, don’t get me wrong there were some strong performances in this movie, but not everyone was up to the same level.  

Midnight in Paris

outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role

Demian Bichir (A Better Life) – I only want him to win because he is soooo pretty. Between this and his Oscar nomination we will be seeing a lot more of him. Thank you members of SAG and the Academy, you know how to bring the pretty.

Gorge Clooney (The Descendants) – will win

Leonardo DiCaprio (J. Edgar)

Jean Dujardin (The Artist)

Brad Pitt (Moneyball) – should win

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role

Glenn Close (Albert Nobbs)

Viola Davis (The Help) – will win and should win

Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady)

Tilda Swinton (We Need To Talk About Kevin)

Michelle Williams (My Week with Marilyn)



Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role

Kenneth Branagh (My Week with Marilyn)

Christopher Plummer (Beginners) – will win






Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role

Berenice Bejo (The Artist)

Jessica Chastain (The Help)

Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) – SAG voters could pull a surprise and award it to Melissa, it would be a big surprise

Ryan Gosling was ROBBED SAG Nominations 2011

14 Dec

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.

The full list can be found here SAG Nominations.

Don’t forget the Golden Globe nominations are announced tomorrow, Thursday December 15th.
