What show do you think will win the most awards at the Screen Actors Guild Awards this Saturday?
3 nominations-House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Homeland
2 nominations-Veep, The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, Downton Abbey, Mad Men, Orange is the New Black, Transparent
If you have a tie, vote for the one who you think has the best chance of winning them all.
Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.January 27, 2016 at 3:53 pm #367299
I have both Veep and Game of Thrones winning two. Veep winning Actress and Ensemble, and GOT winning ensemble and stunt ensemble.

I don’t consider stunt categories as main, so House of Cards is the only show that could win 3 to me.
So the whole guild can vote for stunt categories or are only real stunts able to vote? If the former is true, how did GoT beat more popular shows(back then) Boardwalk Empire and Breaking Bad in that category? Any SAG voter here?
People are sleeping on Peter Dinklage. It’s actually rare that one show can win just ensemble and nothing else. Yep, Modern Family managed to that for 3 years but their individuals were just splitting their own support. I’m still not completely sold on GoT’s ensemble win, but considering SAG voters sheep mentality; how possible is that for them to like the show enough to vote in top category but not in the other easier one?January 27, 2016 at 4:36 pm #367301
The whole guild votes for stunts. I saw Tom’s ballot.January 27, 2016 at 4:39 pm #367302
Ugh. They just don’t vote then. Thanks!January 27, 2016 at 4:52 pm #367303
I have “Orange is the New Black” and “Game of Thrones” both winning two.January 27, 2016 at 7:29 pm #367304
I have a feeling that OITNB and Uzo are going to repeat and win again this year…and I would be more than happy with that.January 27, 2016 at 9:05 pm #367305
Ugh. They just don’t vote then.
No, I think that it is a case of people not being able to distinguish a show from its ensemble, but being able to distinguish a show from its stunts.January 28, 2016 at 12:25 am #367306
I only have OITNB winning two, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Veep took it’s wins or Transparent taking Ensemble and Actor.January 28, 2016 at 5:47 am #367307
Yeah I have OITNB repeating unless veep scoops them upJanuary 28, 2016 at 7:28 am #367308
Orange Is the New Black: Ensemble, Uzo Aduba(2)
Transparent: Jeffrey Tambor
House of Cards: Kevin Spacey
How to Get Away with Murder: Viola Davis(strongly considering R.Wright upset)
Game of Thrones: Ensemble, Stunt(1+1)
If they voted for Uzo last year without knowing who she was, there is no reason why they should stop voting for her after a successful year in front of the media.
I still need to see strong evidence to really believe Veep has increased its popularity since last year. But right now, it looks like it has won Best Comedy-Emmy thanks to the Orange’s category placement.
