    This is always one of the toughest categories to predict, and this year is no different. Plenty of excellent candidates, but right now my prediction is:

    1. Manchester By The Sea

    2. La La Land

    3. Fences

    4. Loving

    5. Hidden Figures

    —————————–

    6. Moonlight

    7. Silence

    8. 20th Century Women

    9. Jackie

    10. Hell or High Water

     

    What are your thoughts?

    Of your top 5, my only real concern is Loving, as I don’t think it has a strong “cast/ensemble” vibe to it. The individual performances are really good, but the interactions between the characters are severly lacking.

    I have my eye on Collateral Beauty because it has a really strong cast and the preview would indicate that the cast builds off of one another well.

    Right now, I’m thinking…

    1. Moonlight
    2. Hidden Figures
    3. Fences
    4. La La Land
    5. Manchester By the Sea

    6. Rules Don’t Apply (don’t forget Bobby was nominated)
    7. Hell or High Water
    8. Jackie
    9. Patriots Day
    10. Silence

    This is how I see it right now:

    1. Fences
    2. Moonlight
    3. Hidden Figures
    4. La La Land
    5. Manchester by the Sea
    ~
    6. 20th Century Women
    7. Hell or High Water
    8. Lion
    9. Nocturnal Animals
    10. Florence Foster Jenkins

    Hovering outside that: Eye in the Sky, Patriot’s Day, Miss Sloane, Loving, Sully

    And Btw, “Jackie” has absolutely no chance here. I highly doubt “Rules Dont Apply” will factor here (or anywhere) either.
    Also, “Silence” will screen too late and wont be seen by enough of the nominating committee members to grab a nod. And I’m not sure if “Collateral Beauty” will screen in time either. If it does, it certainly has the cast on paper to grab a nod.

    1. Moonlight
    2. La La Land
    3. Hidden Figures
    4. Manchester by the Sea

    I keep going back and forth for the last slot between 20th Century Women and Fences. I have the former right now, but not predicting Fences seems stupid.

    Loving, Fences , La La Land & Silence did not send out screeners for voters, so I’m not gonna predict them for an ensemble nod. Although I think La La Land could get in without screeners.

    Hell Or High Water
    Hidden Figures
    Manchester By The Sea
    Moonlight

    Fifth spot is either : La La Land / Eye In The Sky / Rules Don’t Apply / 20th Century Women

    Do not count out Fences. Three weeks ago, the SAG nominating committee was at a screening, along with journalists and select OScar voters, and the audience applauded three times during the movie and the theater erupted into thunderous applause afterwards. There is no way in hell, Fences, is going to be left off the list of ensemble nominees. Not with Oscarssowhite still hovering in the air out in Hollywood.

    They have Moonlight & Hidden Figures to fill that void. I’d Paramount doesn’t get screeners out before next week, Fences will get left out despite the household names as leads. I think Viola & Denzel gets individual nods though.

    Assuming that both Hidden Figures and Moonlight get an ensemble nod, I’m here for double SAG nominees Mahershala Ali and Janelle Monàe.

    I don’t care how many screeners some of these movies send out to voter’s during the voting period, some of them don’t stand a chance to be nominated.

    1. Fences
    2. Moonlight
    3. Manchester By The Sea
    4. La La Land
    5. Sully

    Sully has no chance. That’s purely a Tom Hanks show with a hint of Aaron Eckhart.

    There were key snubs in the past due to to NO screeners getting sent out. Fences’ actors could easily get in, but predicting a win in Ensemble (with no screeners out) just because you’re Viola’s biggest stan is doing the most.

    Fences is like Doubt. The acting is what stands out the most and it’ll get a lot of votes but Moonlight has overwhelming praise like Slumdog Millionaire did.
