The 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards will be handed out on Sunday night, January 27, honoring the best performances by individual actors and ensemble casts in film and television. So who will take home top honors? Scroll down for our complete predictions in all six film categories ranked in order of their racetrack odds, with the projected winners highlighted in gold.
One category is so close there’s actually a tie in our odds. A tie at the actual event seems unlikely since ballots were sent out to more than 120,000 industry members who make up the SAG-AFTRA union, but it’s actually not unheard of at these kudos. The 1997 race for film supporting actresses resulted in both Kim Basinger (“L.A. Confidential”) and Gloria Stuart (“Titanic”) taking home statues.
Our odds are calculated by combining the predictions of thousands of Gold Derby users, including more than a dozen Expert journalists from top media outlets, the Editors who cover awards year-round for Gold Derby, the Top 24 Users who had the best predictions at last year’s SAG Awards, and the All-Star Top 24 Users who had the best predictions when you combine the last two years’ results. Then of course there are the thousands of everyday Gold Derby Users who make up our biggest predictions bloc; when the dust settles one of them usually outscores the rest of us in handicapping the race.
Who do you think will be this year’s big winners? Check out our predictions below. Make or update your own picks here in our predictions center before the winners are known.
