Best Ensemble: “Spotlight”
Teridax: I still think The Big Short will win BP over Spotlight. PGA has gotten it right far more often and consistently than SAG Ensemble has. Remember American Hustle? No ACE Eddie nom, No Bafta Directing nom, Spotlight to me is D.E.A.D. until it wins Best Picture at the Baftas and especially the DGA! 

Joe Burns: Well, the acting races just got a whole less exciting. BP is so up in the air though, can”t wait for DGA.

Amy the Coattail: Don’t be too excited Mark Ruffalo, it’s all because of the AFTRA voting. Your film is still 3rd at the Oscar race. 

Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio (“The Revenant”
SupaDupaFLy: That’s right Hammy Cranston. Remain seated and clap for Leo.

MrNova: Gotta love Leo and Kate’s friendship! đŸ™‚

TomIsInWilliams: With this win, its an absolute LOCK for Leo. There is no way he wont win the Oscar.

Best Actress: Brie Larson (“Room”)
cnmem10: Brie has been pretty much on lock all season yall just hating  I dont care about her speechs or her personality  she gave the Best perfomance with Saorise a close 2nd

Best Supporting Actor: Idris Elba (“Beasts of No Nation”)
England: Elba is such an outstanding actor. I am glad he is getting these awards.

Best Supporting Actress: Alicia Vikander (“The Danish Girl”)
DamianWayne: There’s your Oscar winner. (Wish it was for EM instead)

Mr. Nova: Jennifer Connelly 2.0 is happening.

SAG Awards 2016 winners:
‘Spotlight,’ Leonardo DiCaprio, Brie Larson, Idris Elba, ‘Downton Abbey’ …


AmytheCoattail: Just as I was about to cheer that someone other than Aduba have been elected to speak…. They have chosen the worst and whitest actor in that talented and diverse ensemble…. lol

Nick: I’d rather Aduba than Dreyfus.

MrGoodWood: Uzo Aduba is turning into those people who are going to keep on winning for years, even though she’s not even best in her own show.

Kevin: That was a great moment with Jason Bateman. That’s why these awards are so great; they really zero in on the performances rather than the noise.

Bradderz: YES Downton!! Take that, haters.

Bamaed: I guess if it keeps British actor playing Brits instead of coming over here and doing bad American accents, it’ll be worth it. Seriously, a flat accent is not an American accent, it’s just a flat accent.

Vincelette: Yay! Couse Viola is the Queen! Period! It’s a shame she didn’t win the Golden Globe. 

Nick: Viola is brilliant. Period

Kevin: I’m just going to pretend this one was for Robin Wright instead of Kevin Spacey.

TV Movie/Miniseries
jw79bull: I thought Queen was gonna kiss her Girlfriend on live TV….I love Dana Owens đŸ™‚ 

kazzia: Another Elba win , this one is deserved.
