“Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” surprised us by earning the most Screen Actors Guild Award nominations (four), and it’ll win every category it’s up for according to the combined predictions of over 2,000 users who have made their forecasts thus far. There’s still time to enter or edit your own picks here to influence our odds and potentially win our predictions contest before the prizes are handed out on Sunday night, January 21.
We’re betting on “Three Billboards” to win prizes for its ensemble cast, for the lead performance by Frances McDormand as a grieving mother, and for the supporting turn by Sam Rockwell as a violent racist cop. This would be the third SAG Award victory for McDormand and the first for Rockwell, who is up against his co-star Woody Harrelson as the chief of police in the title Midwestern town.
There are only three other awards being presented in film categories at the SAG Awards, and they will be split among three different films. “Darkest Hour” will claim lead-acting honors for Gary Oldman for playing the iconic role of Winston Churchill in the World War II-era drama. He was nominated just once before, for his supporting performance in “The Contender” (2000).
The stunt ensemble for “Dunkirk” will prevail on that film’s only nomination. It would be the third Christopher Nolan film to receive that award, following “The Dark Knight” (2008) and “Inception” (2010), and it would be the fourth war movie in five years after “Lone Survivor” (2013), “Unbroken” (2014), and “Hacksaw Ridge” (2016).
Rounding out our projected winners is “I, Tonya” for the supporting performance by Allison Janney as Tonya Harding‘s abusive mother LaVona. This would be the seventh win for Janney, who previously took home two individual prizes for her performance in the TV drama series “The West Wing” (2001-2002), two ensemble awards for “The West Wing” (2001-2002) and two more ensemble awards for the 1999 feature film “American Beauty” and the 2011 film “The Help.”
