The SAG Awards were held tonight. I did not bother to watch them but apparently, a good time was had by all. Parasite won the award for Best Ensemble, which is the SAG equivalent for Best Picture. (1917, which won at the PGA Awards earlier this week, was not nominated for the Ensemble award.) This might mean that Parasite is the new front runner for Best Picture or it might not. Do you remember what won last year? Black Panther.
(I’m a little bit surprised that SAG didn’t go for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, which is is a film about actors. I mean, Birdman won a prize it didn’t deserve by appealing to the ego of actors. Then again, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood centers on an actor whose career is going downhill so maybe it hits too close to home.)
Joaquin Phoenix, Renee Zellweger, Brad Pitt, and Laura Dern won the acting prizes and I imagine that they’ll repeat at the Oscars. To be honest, it’s hard for me to remember who else is nominated in any of those categories.
Avengers: Endgame won for Best Stunt Ensemble. Why isn’t their an Oscar category for Best Stunts? Seriously, that’s messed up.
Anyway, here’s your list of film winners. They also gave out some TV awards but, to be honest, who cares about that in January? The Emmys are over! If you want to see a full list of winners, click here or do a google search. Whatever works for you.
