The 19th Annual SAG Awards


I’m sick so I ended up sleeping through most of the SAG awards and I missed Argo beating Lincoln for best ensemble. Does this victory mean that Argo is the new front-runner for Best Picture or did the SAG just want to reward a film directed by one of their own? I’m not sure but what I do know for sure is that the Actors’ Branch (made up, of course, by members of the same SAG that embraced Argo) is the biggest voting bloc in the Academy.

Lincoln, by the way, is a pretty good film but it’s also a rather conventional and stately film.  For a lot of people, Argo, which I think is good but not great, connects emotionally in a way that Lincoln doesn’t.

That said, I still think Life of Pi is the best of the all the nominated films and my two favorite films of the year — Anna Karenina and The Cabin In The Woods — weren’t even nominated.

Here are the winners of the 19th Annual SAG Awards.

  1. Was nice to see Dick Van Dyke, creator of my personal 0 on the Ohno-death-scale for dying, laughing, off-screen at end of Mary Poppins. Yes, I realize this is far from a Syfy flick – but is it really? Flying nanny, possessed penguins, army of undead chimney sweeps? You tell me..
