SAG Awards 2015: Winners often go on to win Oscars

Follow us @eotmonline on Twitter |EOTM.Media on Facebook

The Screen Actors Guild awards have become an accurate predictor for the Oscars, largely because actors’ union members who vote in the SAG comprise the Academy’s largest voting block.

If the winners of Sunday night’s Screen Actors Guild awards seem particularly excited on their way up to the podium, it isn’t completely an act.

Now in its 21st installment, the SAG awards have been an accurate predictor of next month’s acting Oscars, largely because the 111,228 actors’ union members who vote for the SAG-gies comprise the Academy’s largest voting bloc.

Last year’s Academy Award winners — best actor Matthew McConaughey, best actress Cate Blanchett, and supporting actors Lupita Nyong’o and Jared Leto — all took home SAG statuettes first.

The ensemble category, however, have been less of a barometer of Oscar gold: The cast of “American Hustle” took the SAG trophy last year — but then watched as “12 Years a Slave” won the Academy Award for best picture.

This year’s SAG awards had the requisite pre-show controversy, thanks to a nominees list without Bradley Cooper and the ensemble cast of “American Sniper.”

Going into Sunday night, industry watchers considered the outstanding leading male actor too close to call between Michael Keaton (“Birdman”) and Eddie Redmayne (“The Theory of Everything”). Benedict Cumberbatch (“The Imitation Game”), Steve Carell (“Foxcatcher”) and Jake Gyllenhaal (“Nightcrawler”) rounded out that category, but were considered longshots.

“As an actor you pour everything you have into every role you do, there’s something alchemic that’s happens a film, you don’t know how it will be received,” Redmayne, who plays the ALS-stricken physicist Stephen Hawking, said as he entered Los Angeles’ Shrine Auditorium. “And the fact that so many people seem to.

Julianne Moore (“Still Alice”) was considered the favorite for the leading actress award, though Reese Witherspoon (“Wild”) had earned some buzz. Though she was shut out for an Oscar nom, Jennifer Aniston (“Cake”), can take solace in the old adage, “It’s an honor just to be nominated” (albeit for a SAG). Rosamund Pike (“Gone Girl”) and Felicity Jones (“The Theory of Everything”) were the other two nominees.

J.K. Simmons (“Whiplash) and Patricia Arquette (“Boyhood”) are considered the overwhelming favorites in the supporting actor categories.

Considerably more drama awaited on the television side, where the above-the-marquee talent vying for the best actor in a drama series included Steve Buscemi (“Boardwalk Empire”), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”), Woody Harrelson and McConaughey (“True Detective”) and Kevin Spacey (“House of Cards”).

Claire Danes (“Homeland”), Viola Davis (“How to Get Away with Murder”), Julianne Margulies (“The Good Wife”), Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”), Maggie Smith (“Downton Abbey”) and Robin Wright (“The Good Wife”) are up for best actress in a drama series.

Coincidentally, Cassie was spotted with a new rock on her engagement ring finger.  You ever notice that what a girl finally gets their rock their hand is always up and out?  I’m not mad at her, I’d be doing the same damn thing.

 

This is funny because who would think that Diddy would ever pop the question? He always maintained the stance as a bachelor and he’s held it down proudly.

“It definitely would be a dream come true for me to just one day be ready for that (marriage). I’m not really looking because I know the responsibility that comes with that, and I think that a lot of people, they jump into that and they’re not honest with themselves. I’m brutally honest with myself. I don’t want to get married and not make that woman be the best. I’ve been close to it, and when I’m ready, I’ll make the announcement, but when I do it, I’m doing it forever.”

So, did Diddy REALLY propose to Cassie? Read more via UnlimitedWhispers.com now.
