    If that happens, would “The Big Short” become the frontrunner? Could that upset happen? Both are great casts

    I think Spotlight wins here but The Big Short takes PGA.

    It has a good shot of taking Spotlight down, because the cast has even more big name talent than Spotlight and there are more flashy roles.

    i think these categories where spotlight and big short goes head to head are really going to be interesting. big short winning won’t actually put it out as frontrunner for me. but if mckay gets a director nom, then look out spotlight. big short might just take over the frontrunner status.

    Big Short is already frontrunner

    I would be equally happy if The Big Short, Spotlight or Trumbo were to win. I am rooting for Trumbo – because the cast is fantastic (I don’t know their names but the actors who play Kirk Doulgas and Otto Preminger are so spot on!) and also because there would  be such an apocalyptic explosion  on here! (; I love it when unexpected things happen!

    SAG ensemble only predicts BP for Oscar about 50% of the time.

    I wish Room and Steve Jobs were nominated ):

    Winning Best Ensemble at SAG is not always telling. Inglourious Basterds, The Help and American Hustle are recent examples of movies with great casts, showy performances and loved by actors but that ultimately couldn’t translate this love to winning BP at Oscars.

    ^ True but with the possible exception of American Hustle those films were never really considered BP frontrunners anyway. If The Big Short and Spotlight are duking it out for Best Picture then SAG Ensemble could be very telling of which way the wind is blowing.

    If The Big Short win SAG ensemble that is a sign it is a long way ahead. Spotlight is a more classic ensemble piece where all the actor interact with each other whereas The Big Short is three distinct stories with very little crossover.

    Not necesarily, American Hustle won and it lost every single nomination, including Best Picture.

     Everywhere you look TBS seems to be gaining momentum  I’d like to see it happen.

    I think PGA’s choice is the only one I would take with certainty, but The Big Short has been gaining the right momentum at the right time and the shift to it might already be in the cards if Spotlight only gets like 3 nominations (and The Big Short gets in for Sound Mixing or something).

    Just TBS, and it’s a better film than Spotlight, in my opinion. Certainly one of three best films I’ve seen this year. The performances from the cast are amazing. I see this winning adapted screenplay. Direction and editing are actually pretty tight.

    The SAG award is sometimes given for biggest cast rather than best. I think Spotlight does better under those standards since Big Short has fewer standout performances.
