Screen Actors Guild Awards

Really hoping for a few spanners to be chucked into the awards race this year.

The SAG awards sometime do like to throw some odd choices out there when picking their winners. These are actors voting so I am hoping that performance will win over popularity.

Could Gabby get some recognition here? It seems likely as I cannot imagine actors rewarding Bullock. Sure she may be popular, but by performance it should be a race between Sidibe, Mulligan and Streep. Streep just won so could they reward a fellow American in Sibide?

Lets hope so.

My out of left field predictions are ripe for upset and mocking, but what the hey.
Best Actor: Jeff Bridges - 'Crazy Heart' - He has yet to win one and is well respected.

Best Actress: Gabourey Sidibe - 'Precious' - I am sure I will be disappointed here, but how wonderful would it be for her to get some credit for a turn as equally wonderful as Mo'Niques.

Best Supporting Actor - Christopher Plummer - 'The Last Station' - Remember Ruby Dee. They like to pay respect to a veteran.

Best Supporting Actress - Mo'Nique - 'Precious' - Head and tails above all the other performances.

Best Ensemble - 'Inglourious Basterds' - Has to be really, unless they go with 'Precious'. Both are truly wonderful examples of ensemble performance.
