CODA Is Peaking At The Right Time – Oscars Watch

While the traditional Oscar rules do not bode well for the film, CODA is starting to peak at exactly the right time ahead of the Oscars. The film critics have spoken and now the guilds are having their say in the matter. Both SAG and PGA gave the film’s awards campaign the biggest boost that it could get. The fact that CODA won WGA is potentially good news. What we need to factor here is…

Michael Keaton talks Massive Inequity

Dopesick actor Michael Keaton discussed massive inequity after winning for Male Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series. Michael Keaton started off humorous after running back from the restroom. If you’ve ever been to the Barker Hanger for an awards show, the restrooms are set up in outside trailers. It’s not ideal but it is what it is. Anyway, Keaton got political in his speech but he was breaking down by the end. If…

Brian Cox: Succession Star Talks Ukraine and Russia

When Succession actor Brian Cox accepted the Drama Series Ensemble win at the SAG Awards, he spoke about both Ukraine and Russia. One other thing I’d like to — is — I think is important to me and I hope important to you, and I think as actors and performers and writers and directors, you will be — this is a thing that’s come to me about what’s going on in the Ukraine. It’s truly,…

SAG Awards: Post-Show Pre-Oscars Analysis

Three acting races are largely decided with one month to go until Oscars Sunday but CODA benefited with a SAG Awards win for Best Cast. The SAG nominees do differ from CCA, BAFTA, and the Oscars but the largest voting body has spoken. While there could still be some acting surprises on Oscar Sunday, I fully expect three winners will repeat on March 27: Actor in a Leading Role: Will Smith, King Richard Actor in…

28th SAG Awards: Predictions For Tonight’s Awards

Solzy at the Movies presents predictions for tonight’s 28th SAG Awards taking place live from the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica. What we know about the nominations are that they are not completely in line with next month’s Academy Awards. During last year’s awards season, the guild went 2-for-5. In the previous year, the guild went 5-for-5 as Parasite went on to win Best Picture. Awards season should not be 15 months long but we’re…

SAG Awards: 27th Annual SAG Award Winners

The 27th Screen Actors Guild Awards were held this evening during what is probably one of the shortest SAG Awards telecasts. Tonight’s ceremony honors the best outstanding individual, cast and ensemble performances as chosen by the actors guild. Like with other major awards shows, SAG-AFTRA extended the eligibility period with February 28, 2021 being the last date.

27th SAG Awards: Screen Actors Guild Nominations

The 27th Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards nominations were announced by Lilly Collins and Daveed Diggs on Instagram. The SAG Awards are one of the pre-cursors to focus on heading into the Oscar nominations announcement because they have the biggest overlap with the actors’ branch of the Academy. One quick takeaway is that critics and the SAG-AFTRA voting body have a very different take on Hillbilly Elegy.  Hillbilly Elegy’s gain is Amanda Seyfried’s loss.…

The nominees were announced this morning for the 26th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG Awards) and will be held on January 19, 2020.
