    Fun video, cool to see everyone together in one room.

    What no one mentioned regarding Vikander (I think) is that ‘Ex Machina’ was nominated at PGA, so voters have seen her give two very good performances this year.

    Also (January 8):

    “Dylan thinks “The Big Short” is “definitely the frontrunner. For so long we’ve heard the media trump up ‘Spotlight’ was going to win best picture; and we’ve heard it was an actor’s movie and thenMichael Keaton and Mark Ruffalo got snubbed at SAG; and then we heard it was an editor’s movie and it got snubbed by ACE. This movie is just weak everywhere.” 

    I did have ‘The Revenant’ for PGA, however I had ‘Spotlight’ third. And I think ‘The Revenant’ is 100% in second place for BP at the Oscars — it has a good shot to win BAFTA and DGA. What will ‘Spotlight’ have won? Critic’s Choice? Doesn’t matter.

    Boomer mentions Christian Bale and how his prospects have gone up for another win. Suddenly, I dont feel so crazy anymore. Lol.

    But he isnt going to win anyways.

    Tom shooting down Mark Rylance was funny.

    That was a good discussion. Supporting actress is tricky I agree. But I ultimate think Winslet win at GG is like JLaws win for Hustle. And SAG will recognize the unknown. I do feel bad for Mara. She had best performance but Harvey is such s flop. Like there was a Carol Q and A yesterday with SAG foundation and it didn’t end up live streamed because of tech difficulties. It’s like everything that could go wrong with that campaign did,

    I also think if Bale wins SAG and BAFTA, there is chance he gets swept up with the love of the film. Rylance kinda flat lined.

    This video was fun. May the best man win. By both at prediction and at SAG.

    Paul’s points were intriguing.

    Chris, i am with you on this one. Mark Rylance will win SAG on Saturday, and BAFTA after that. Just because Christian Bale is in a Best Picture frontrunner does not mean he wil automatically win an acting award. That is not how it works.
    Argo and Birdman proved that. And so many more. If Rylance’s performance is deemed as subdued and not showy, what is Bale?

    Bale has a quirky character.

    Rylance plays an important, real life historical character, in a Best Picture nominee. A dramatic role, with an emotional payoff. I don’t see where the confidence for Christian Bale comes from. Especially when that confidence wasn’t there for Alan Alda (Argo), nor Tommy Lee Jones in Lincoln. Nor any of the others who lost even though they were in Best Picture winners.

    Beating Arkin who was in the SAG Ensemble winner and Best Picture winner, and losing to Waltz at the Oscars. The similarities are uncanny. Bale could very well win on Saturday. But i am not buying it until it happens. He is beloved, but his role and performance is not a slamdunk winning role.

    AFTRA’s power(They make up nearly half of the union now) is the main reason I’m hesitating to switch The Big Short for Ensemble.
    Not saying they automatically vote for Spotlight because it is about them, but it should help. And yes, I know that AFTRA does not only cover journalists.

    Alan Arkin being nominated for ARGO was a complete joke. There was nothing in that performance that was outstanding.
