You wouldn’t think it, but there is a significant different in the mind of an Academy voter and a Hollywood Foreign Press voter.  To end an excellent festival, “The Imitation Game” went home with the TIFF Audience Award. One of the runner-up films was “St. Vincent” another Weinstein film that should farewell in the comedy categories at the Globes.

We went ahead and updated everything, including television categories as we start seeking into a new Fall season for shows.

Awards: SAG Predictions

Awards: SAG Predictions

The Screen Actors Guild awards can be a little bit difficult to predict. They happen early in the year where it is hard to tell which December films SAG has seen and hasn’t seen. For example “Django Unchained” got nothing last year, because not one had seen it yet. Even though it had a very strong acting ensemble.

This year “The Wolf of Wall Street” has reportedly screened for the nominating committee, but what about the members? It is likely “The Wolf of Wall Street” won’t go anywhere here, but I’m going to take that road and say that it will get some attention (But I won’t completely fall for it here).

So here are my final locked-in predictions for SAG (with my runner-up choices):
