Update: Predicting the SAG Awards

Update: So I did a little bit better tonight, accurately guessing 11/15 of the awards, which is far and beyond what I am usually able to do. Sad to say, I think this pretty much solidifies how the acting categories at the Oscars are gonna pan out, so take a good look at Jeff Bridges, Sandra Bullock, Christoph Waltz, and Mo'Nique, cause you're gonna see them all give their speeches come March 7th.

While I hoped for a few surprises, like Bryan Cranston or Tony Shalhoub, as a whole it was a very droll slate of winners for SAG. All of the expected won, and no surprises.

After tonight, some might wanna read into Inglorious Bas**rds win for Best Ensemble in a Motion Picture seeing it as solidifying its stake in the Oscar race alongside The Hurt Locker, but one must not forget that Avatar is riding really high at the moment, and Up in the Air is still hanging in there, and a strong showing from the WGA and maybe the DGA could keep its Best Picture hopes alive. At least Best Picture is exciting at the moment.

Original Post: Tonight is the 16th annual Screen Actor's Guild Awards (SAG), the only one of the Guild Award's shows that comes on TV, but I digress. In all honesty, the SAG Awards had snuck up on me, I had been so wrapped up in school work the past week I haven't really had much time to be spending on the Award's trail like I typically do. Regardless I am here to deliver my best guesses as to who will win the Screen Actor's Guild Awards tonight. Let's get a move on:

Best Stunt Ensemble in a TV Series

Best Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture
Star Trek

Best Actress in a TV Movie or Mini-Series
Drew Barrymore, Grey Gardens

Best Actor in a TV Movie or Mini-Series
Kevin Bacon, Taking Chance

Best Actress in a Comedy Series
Toni Collette, The United States of Tara

Best Actor in a Comedy Series
Tony Shalhoub, Monk

Best Actress in a Drama Series
Julianna Margulies, The Good Wife

Best Actor in a Drama Series
Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad

Best Ensemble in a Comedy Series

Best Ensemble in a Drama Series
Mad Men

Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture
Mo'Nique, Precious

Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture
Christoph Waltz, Inglorious Bas**rds

Best Actress in a Motion Picture
Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side

Best Actor in a Motion Picture
Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart

Best Ensemble in a Motion Picture
The Hurt Locker

Well, that does it for my predictions. Tune in to either TBS or TNT tonight and watch the SAG Awards at 8/7 central.
