SAG Awards nominees announced!!



BEST ENSEMBLE CAST
The Artist
Bridesmaids
The Descendants
The Help
Midnight in Paris



My take: No Harry Potter? Booo!! This was the last chance to show recognition to the cast of the film which contained almost every working actor in Britain today.  Boo!! It warranted a second boo.  That being said, this award practically belongs to The Help.  


BEST ACTOR
Demi├ín Bichir, A Better Life
George Clooney, The DescendantsLeonardo DiCaprio, J. EdgarJean Dujardin, The ArtistBrad Pitt, Moneyball



My take: Is it finally time for Leonardo DiCaprio to win his first Oscar? Probably but Brad Pitt is the one who is receiving more buzz this year.  Looks like Leo will have to wait another year.  PS- Whatever happened to Michael Fassbender's nomination? Is Shame too risky a movie for SAG members?


BEST ACTRESS
Glenn Close, Albert NobbsViola Davis, The HelpMeryl Streep, The Iron LadyTilda Swinton, We Need to Talk About KevinMichelle Williams, My Week With Marilyn



My take: Meryl, Meryl, Meryl.  She's nominated again for the billionth time and I'd love to see her win again but Violas Davis was something else in The Help.  Those eyes!! She totally deserves to win.


BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Kenneth Branagh, My Week With Marilyn
Armie Hammer, J. Edgar
Jonah Hill, Moneyball
Nick Nolte, Warrior
Christopher Plummer, Beginners



My take: Having seen both Beginners and Warrior recently, both Nolte and Plummer have given career defining performances.  I'd say Plummer would be the one to beat.  Way to go Jonah Hill on his nomination!  Please don't give up on comedy though.  


BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Berenice Bejo, The Artist
Jessica Chastain, The Help
Melissa McCarthy, Bridesmaids
Janet McTeer, Albert Nobbs
Octavia Spencer, The Help



My take: It's all about Melissa McCarthy for this category unless the ladies from The Help have something to do about it.
