You can now predict the SAG Awards nominees in the film categories in our predictions center. Who are your picks in these five categories?September 30, 2015 at 3:22 pm #195192
Cool. I also would like Grammys and Golden Globes ASAP. Please and thank you!
Call me crazy, but I have a weird feeling that Elizabeth Banks will get a nomination for Love & Mercy. I just have a feeling.September 30, 2015 at 3:48 pm #195193
Working on both of those, so they should be available soon.September 30, 2015 at 5:13 pm #195195
I’m still selfishly predicting Rose Byrne. She delivered one of the funniest performances of the year thus far and also, save us the potential category fraud!!!!!September 30, 2015 at 8:05 pm #195197
Jacob Tremblay for Lead Actor. I just have this hunch.
Will Smith will join the race, starting with SAG.
Bridge of Spies, Suffragette, Spotlight, Steve Jobs for Ensemble.September 30, 2015 at 10:23 pm #195198
I wonder if Waltz can sneak in like Bardem for Skyfall.
And will Hateful Eight suffer like Django did at the SAGs? I hope not. That cast looks great in the trailerOctober 1, 2015 at 2:01 pm #195200
For Best Ensemble, I think that Spotlight, The Hateful Eight and Joy are pretty safe bets. Steve Jobs should join them. I’m struggling to decide on a 5th pick, so I’m going out on a limb and going for The Big Short as it has the most impressive cast of any of the contenders. However, I can’t see it getting any nominations in Lead or Supporting Actor, and probably won’t be an Oscar contender.October 1, 2015 at 2:57 pm #195201
It’s make or break for Blythe Danner, who I can see SAG launching into an Oscar nom á la Démian Bichir.October 1, 2015 at 6:59 pm #195202
I think Spotlight is a lock and The Martian and Steve Jobs are front runners as well. I’m also predicting Joy and The Hateful Eight, but very hesitantly.
Remember Wolf of Wall Street, and Tarantino’s last film,Django Unchained? The late release could really hurt those movies chances as major awards contenders, let alone whether they can get Screeners sent to voters or not. I’m predicting the “Selma” of this year will be The Revenent, also because I think Academy voters will see more of an urge to recognize the long-overdue David O. Russell or Q.T. Instead of last year’s 3-time winner!
Alejandro G. Has won more Oscars last year alone than poor Tarantino has IN HIS ENTIRE CAREER!!! Crazy, huh?October 1, 2015 at 7:13 pm #195203
Ensemble in a Motion Picture:
THE HATEFUL EIGHT
STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON
Analysis: I think Spotlight and Steve Jobs are near guaranteed. The Hateful Eight hopefully doesn’t suffer the same fate as Django Unchained, the trailer looks promising as a real ensemble piece. Straight Outta Compton may get recognised here similarly to Hustle & Flow. Everest is my wildcard pick, it’s got the names attached to it so I can’t see why not. Joy would be in my sixth spot.
Male Actor in a Leading Role:
Bryan Cranston / TRUMBO
Johnny Depp / BLACK MASS
Leonardo DiCaprio / THE REVENANT
Michael Fassbender / STEVE JOBS
Eddie Redmayne / THE DANISH GIRL
Analysis: If I had to alter the category in anyway it would be to remove Bryan Cranston and add Michael Caine.
Female Actor in a Leading Role:
Cate Blanchett / CAROL
Emily Blunt / SICARIO
Brie Larson / ROOM
Jennifer Lawrence / JOY
Lily Tomlin / GRANDMA
Analysis: A tough one here, I think Blanchett and Lawrence are fairly safe. Tomlin will hopefully be safe as well. Larson might be the one to watch. Blunt isn’t safe IMO, she will be battling for this spot with Carey Mulligan, Saoirse Ronan, Maggie Smith and possibly Amy Schumer.
Male Actor in a Supporting Role:
Idris Elba / BEASTS OF NO NATION
Tom Hardy / THE REVENANT
Samuel L Jackson / THE HATEFUL EIGHT
Michael Keaton / SPOTLIGHT
Jason Mitchell / STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON
Analysis: IMO Jackson and Keaton are possibly the only safe bets at this stage. I think Hardy will get in like Armie Hammer did a few years ago. Elba should hopefully get in if his performance is strong enough. Mitchell is my wildcard here, something is telling me that there is going to be lots of support for this film. Next in line would be Mark Ruffalo, Robert DeNiro and Harvey Keitel.
Female Actor in a Supporting Role:
Jane Fonda / YOUTH
Jennifer Jason Leigh / THE HATEFUL EIGHT
Rooney Mara / CAROL
Alicia Vikander / THE DANISH GIRL
Kate Winslet / STEVE JOBS
Analysis: IMO Mara is the safest. JJL and Winslet should be ok as well. Vikander (this years Jessica Chastain) will either get in here or lead. Fonda should be able to get the showy performance and name recognition tick. Next in line would be Rachel McAdams, Helen Mirren and Elizabeth Banks.
Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture:
THE AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS
Analysis: I really have no idea, just guessing.October 1, 2015 at 10:30 pm #195204
Right now going with
Room in Best Ensemble
I think Room fits the bill of the ToE, DBC, sort of deal where it’s thought to only hold one or two strong acting bets and sneaks up with wider support.October 2, 2015 at 10:37 am #195205
Inarritu and Tarantino will deliver on time. The Hateful Eight already had multiple screenings, and Golden Globe members saw The Revenant. Count on those two movies at SAG. DiCaprio probably will start his campaign with a SAG nomination. I’m also predicting The Hateful Eight for Ensemble.October 2, 2015 at 9:19 pm #195206
The thing about the Martian ensemble is that it is a great group of fantastic actors but they aren’t fantastic all together in the movie. They do a good job each and every one but I don’t think they are strong enough to get a nomination. Plus we talk about the Oscars being anti scifi for wins in top categories the SAGs are even worse.December 2, 2015 at 10:31 pm #195207
