    I’m reminded of the year when Denzel Washington beat Casey Affleck to win the Screen Actor’s Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role. Washington, in spite of being a celebrated actor, had never won a SAG Award until that point. As such, he won the award against Affleck, who was the frontrunner at the time.

    I feel as if we could see the same scenario occurring in the Supporting Actor category this year. Of all the five nominees, Joe Pesci is the only one to have never won a SAG Award before. Hell, before this year, he had never even been nominated for one before. And, like Washington, Pesci too is a legend. With The Irishman, he delivered what plenty (myself included) believe to be one of the best performances of his career, as well as one of the year’s best performances. He has racked up a multitude of critics awards for his work and, more crucially, this is his first substantial performance in eons and it also is likely his swansong. With this in mind, not only would a Pesci victory be SAG’s way to give him his due, it could also be their only opportunity to give him his due.

    Do y’all think Pesci has a fighting chance? Or does Brad Pitt have this in the bag?

    Pesci could win at SAG, not so much because he is overdue there in particular, but because he is winning the Oscar (in this hypothetical).

    I don’t remember what Brad Pitt would have won for at SAG and so I don’t think voters will either.

    And even if they did remember, I can’t think of a voter who would say to themselves “well Brad Pitt won an ensemble award however many years ago so I should vote for someone who has never won before.”

    I don’t think this is a likely scenario.

    Pitt is sweeping and Once is winning Ensemble like Waltz and the cast of Inglourious Basterds did.

    I don’t think he’ll win anything

    I just love movies. And awards.

    SAG is the definition of sheep, no way they choose a different winner than the four frontrunners.

    Brad is winning, let me correct that statement. Brad is sweeping. And by a landslide. He deserves that Oscar though, he should have won for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. So he’s definitely overdue.

    It’s hard to imagine a timeline where Joaquin, Zellweger, Pitt, and Dern don’t sweep the whole season, but I do hope at least one if them loses one of the precursors to make things interesting, even Joaquin (though I still want him to win the Oscar).

    I feel he only really has two performances Brad should sweep for: The Tree of Life and The Assassination of Jesse James.

    I hate overdue narratives. They fuck everything up, and sometimes rob the actual deserving winners.

    Brad Pitt does not have a sexual harassment claim about him that occurred in the middle of the voting period. He also has one of the showiest roles in the contention. Pesci does not. The differences between these two seasons could not be starker.

    Pitt isn’t getting Mark Rylanced.

    Industry loves him.

    If they choose to award the best male performance of the year.
