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.

Oscars 2015: The Biggest Snubs…Surprises And….

What would the Oscars be without a few curveballs?

This year’s Academy Award nominations were full of many notable snubs and surprises, from critical favorite Selma getting largely ignored for major awards to surprise additions to the acting categories. Keep reading for a breakdown of the biggest shocks from this morning’s announcement.

Snub: Jennifer Aniston for Best Actress

Aniston was considered a surprise threat for the Best Actress category during the earlier part of award season, seeing as how Cake was getting drowned out by other films. However, when she scored a Globe nomination, it looked like Aniston had this one in the bag.

Before the nominations, Aniston told reporters at the movie’s Los Angeles premiere Wednesday that she wasn’t expecting one. “I have no expectations on anything,” she said when asked about getting a nod. “I don’t want to have any, and I will be thrilled, and of course over the moon if something like that happens, but I am so content with everything that has happened thus far.”

Surprise: Laura Dern for Best Supporting Actress

Dern recovered from her Golden Globe supporting actress snub by scoring an Oscar nomination for her masterful turn in Wild. Her nomination earned large cheers from those in attendance at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences headquarters in Beverly Hills, CA, while the nominations were being announced.

Even Mark Ruffalo was excited:

Snub: David Oyelowo for Best Actor

Selma was considered an award season frontrunner, with Oyelowo’s performance as Martin Luther King, Jr. a perceived lock for best actor. Sadly, Selma only walked away from this morning with two nominations.

Surprise: Bradley Cooper for Best Actor

After getting ignored at the Globes, Cooper managed to score best actor nomination for American Sniper in a particularly tough race. This marks Cooper’s third Oscar nomination in a row.

Snub: Ava DuVernay for Best Director

The Selma director was on the short list for the best director races this year, but she was passed over for a nod at the Oscars. Had she been nominated, she would have been the first black woman to score an Oscar nod for Best Director. Luckily, Selma did score a Best Picture nomination, which was greeted with applause by the nomination audience after several key snubs.

Surprise: Marion Cotillard for Best Actress

Despite not getting a lot of attention this year, Oscar winner Cotillard notched a surprise nomination for Best Actress for Two Days, One Night. The nod was so unexpected that it drew audible gasps during the nomination announcement.

Snub: Jake Gyllenhaal for Best Actor

Award fever for Nightcrawler had cooled considerably once the Oscar nominations were revealed, but many expected to see Gyllenhaal score a nomination thanks to his haunting performance, especially after he scored a Golden Globe nomination.

Snub: Clint Eastwood for Best Director

Considering that American Sniper scored several major nods, it was surprising to see Eastwood left off the list for directors. This marks the first time that one of Eastwood’s directorial efforts has been nominated for Best Picture but not also for Best Director.

Snub: Amy Adams for Best Actress

Big Eyes wasn’t exactly an award season favorite, but considering that Adams had just scored the Golden Globe for best actress in motion picture, comedy or musical, her nomination should have been on lock.

 

Snub: The Lego Movie for Best Animated Feature Film

It was one of 2014′s biggest commercial hits, got rave reviews and scored a Golden Globe nomination, but The Lego Movie was shut out for Best Animated Feature Film at the Oscars. At least it scored a nomination for Best Original Song for “Everything Is Awesome”?

For the record, Phil Lord, the co-writer and director of The Lego Movie, was taking the snub in stride.

Entrepreneurs that Dare to #ChangeTheWorld — Celebrating Entrepreneurship Globally

By Carla B.

EOTM “Entrepreneurs On The Move” Awards — Celebrating Dreamers/Risk-Takers That Are Changing The World.

In entrepreneurship, as with most other worthwhile endeavors in life having a role model can be hugely valuable. Not only is it helpful to follow their footsteps and avoid their missteps, these entrepreneurial icons are always good for a healthy dose of inspiration. With this in mind, I have put together some of the best quotes and positive affirmations for entrepreneurs. Below are just a few, which also happens to be my favorites!

Entrepreneurs Changing The World

“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” — Steve Jobs
