screen actors guild awards this saturday!

here are my predictions to this weekend's highly anticipated SAG awards. these predictions now differ from the one i made in december when the nominations were announced. there were latest developments that made me rethink my picks. of course, my favorites remain the same. do i need to remind you it's "[500] days of summer" and "[500] days of summer"? lol

here are the nominees and my predictions in red:


Actor: Jeff Bridges, "Crazy Heart"; George Clooney, "Up in the Air"; Colin Firth, "A Single Man"; Morgan Freeman, "Invictus"; Jeremy Renner, "The Hurt Locker."
*** Predix: Jeff Bridges (after a rousing ovation at the globes, he is the man to beat!)

Actress: Sandra Bullock, "The Blind Side"; Helen Mirren, "The Last Station"; Carey Mulligan, "An Education"; Gabourey Sidibe, "Precious: Based on the Novel `Push' By Sapphire"; Meryl Streep, "Julie & Julia."
*** Predix: Meryl Streep (Sandra was my earlier predicted winner but a tepid reaction to her win at the globes was disquieting, hmmm)

Supporting actor: Matt Damon, "Invictus"; Woody Harrelson, "The Messenger"; Christopher Plummer, "The Last Station"; Stanley Tucci, "The Lovely Bones"; Christoph Waltz, "Inglourious Basterds."
*** Christoph Waltz (i hope a suprise springs from here to make the Oscars a lot more exciting)

Supporting actress: Penelope Cruz, "Nine"; Vera Farmiga, "Up in the Air"; Anna Kendrick, "Up in the Air"; Diane Kruger, "Inglourious Basterds"; Mo'Nique"; "Precious: Based on the Novel `Push' By Sapphire."

Ensemble cast: "An Education," "The Hurt Locker," "Inglourious Basterds," "Nine," "Precious: Based on the Novel `Push' By Sapphire."
*** The Hurt Locker (tough call but either this movie or "Inglourious Basterds" will walk away with the win)

Actor in a drama series: Simon Baker, "The Mentalist"; Bryan Cranston, "Breaking Bad"; Michael C. Hall, "Dexter"; Jon Hamm, "Mad Men"; Hugh Laurie, "House."
