Sunday Surprises?


The 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place on Sunday, January 27 at 5:00 pm Pacific Time on TNT and TBS.

The SAG awards are considered one of the major guild award lead ins to the Academy Awards and have been known to totally upset the race by indicating unsuspected momentum.  Whether or not that will be true this year will be determined this Sunday.  Nominations are made for both Motion Pictures and Television. Listed below are the nominations for motion pictures. To see the ones for television, you can visit the SAG website. My preferences are shown by using a picture of the nominee.  For cast award I would be fine with just about anything other than Silver Linings Playbook or Marigold Hotel.  While the casts were good, I don’t believe either film qualifies as a Best Picture Contender at the upcoming Oscars.

    I always liked the idea of the SAG awards because it rewarded ensembles. Sometimes you run into a great movie or program, and the reason it is good is because of the entire cast and the way it works together as a group. The show ER was like that, as was Friends.
