Make your SAG predictions

Posted by · 5:29 pm · December 15th, 2010

Now that most of the major critics’ groups have had their say, tomorrow begins the second phase of the precursor season, as the Screen Actors’ Guild makes the first of this year’s industry award pronouncements.

I always feel a twinge of dread about the SAG nomination list — frequently more middle-of-the-road than the critics’ picks, though with odd flashes of peer affection for unlikely veterans and character actors, they have a way of reducing the pool of Oscar hopefuls rather aggressively. More often than not, boredom ensues: last year, 19 of the 20 SAG individual performance nominees went on to repeat at the Oscars.

Suffice to say, a snub from these guys stings more than one from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, but Marcia Gay Harden will forever remain a beacon of hope to the SAG-ignored: 10 years ago, a diss from the Guild (and indeed from virtually every other precursor, save the New York critics) didn’t stop her taking the golden boy home for “Pollock.”

Predictions after the jump.

Tomorrow, I’m particularly interested to see what shows up in the Best Ensemble category, often mistreated by SAG voters as a catch-all category for Best Picture frontrunners — though not in 2007, where they threw in curious curveballs like “3.10 to Yuma.” Will “Inception” brush in ahead of more actor-y pieces like “The Kids Are All Right” and “The Town?” I have a feeling not, but if I’m wrong, the film’s campaign is clearly in rude health. The ubiquitous “The Social Network” will inevitably pop up in the top race, but will a group of peers be as taken with the film’s young, semi-outsider stars as the critics?

Also hoping for some displays of peer affection after missing out elsewhere are beloved vets like Robert Duvall and Dianne Wiest: if their friends at SAG don’t prop them up, I’m not sure who will. I’ve stuck mostly to the status quo in my predictions below, with a pair of wild cards: I’m starting to wonder if the lovefest for his “Fighter” co-stars could sweep Mark Wahlberg in as well, while John Hawkes is the kind of hardworking stalwart of screens big and small that SAG sometimes likes to throw a (ahem) bone.

The 2010 Screen Actors’ Guild nominations will be announced at 6 a.m. PST tomorrow morning. We’ll be on it. In the meantime, check out my predictions below and share yours in the comments.

    Has the Nominating Committee seen “True Grit”? Hard to imagine them leaving out Jeff Bridges or Hailee Steinfeld.

    Also, I went to a Committee screening for “Another Year” and Lesley Manville was treated like a rock star. Still got my fingers crossed for her.

    Sadly, I think you might be right about Wahlberg getting a nod for his close proximity to good actors.

    Graysmith said...

    I’m going with..

    Actor: Bridges, Duvall, Eisenberg, Firth, Franco
    Actress: Bening, Kidman, Lawrence, Portman, Williams
    S. Actor: Bale, Garfield, Renner, Ruffalo, Rush
    S. Actress: Adams, Bonham Carter, Leo, Steinfeld, Weaver
    Ensemble: The Fighter, The Kids Are All Right, The King’s Speech, The Social Network, The Town

    Alternates: Gosling, Manville, Hawkes, Kunis, Black Swan, respectively.

    Graysmith said...

    Oh, and I sure hope you’re right about Hawkes, Guy. I’ve got my fingers crossed, but not the guts to predict him.

  • 4 12-15-2010 at 5:46 pm

    Matthew Starr said...

    I also think, and hope, Manville will get something here.

    I also think either Black Swan or True Grit will get in for ensemble and replace The Town from your list.

  • 5 12-15-2010 at 5:47 pm

    SammysRun said...

    Yes! Also forgot to mention how badly I want to see this for Hawkes.

    Poor Sam Rockwell though…

    Andrej said...

    For Best Ensemble I’d say… uh…

    – The Fighter.
    – The Kids Are All Right.
    – The King’s Speech.
    – The Social Network.
    – Winter’s Bone.

    HOWEVER, in Bizarro World things would be like this:

    – Burlesque.
    – Inception.
    – The King’s Speech.
    – The Social Network.
    – The Town.

    It’s not a bad bizarro world though. 2007 was way more off.

    SammysRun: I like Wahlberg very much in The Fighter. I’m not being snide about him.

    JJ1 said...

    I’ll go:
    Firth, Franco, Duvall, Gosling, Eisenberg
    Bening, Moore, Kidman, Williams, Lawrence
    Bale, Ruffalo, Rush, Hawkes, Garfield
    Adams, Leo, HBC, Manville, Steinfeld

    Misses for Bridges, Wahlberg, Bardem, Renner, Weaver, Weist.

    I see Moore in Lead, Manville getting in, and with Supporting; just as nice SAG twists.

    Who the heck knows.

    I have a hard time thinking Wahlberg could get in. He seems to pale in comparison with the rest of the cast, and Best Actor just feels way too crowded with great performances for him to make the cut. Of course, I haven’t seen the film, maybe it’s a powerhouse performance that the trailers allude nothing to it being.. But I’m just not feeling it, especially with him so very likely getting a SAG nomination anyway for Ensemble.

  • 12 12-15-2010 at 6:04 pm

    Guy Lodge said...

    Watch the film, Graysmith. It’s not a powerhouse per se, but it’s rock-solid work.

    The Great Dane said...

    They studio have fucked up Manville by not placing her officially in a category. That’s how she misses a lot of nominations. Why didn’t they just place her in Supporting where she would actually win?

    Guy, what makes you think SAG isn’t likely to shine the light on some burdgeoning younger stars? I seem to remember years where the likes of Ryan Gosling, Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, Jamie Bell, Freddie Highmore, etc, etc were recognized by SAG but not by many other groups (including the Academy).

    Gathering from buzz lately…

    -Jesse Eisenberg/Ryan Gosling/Mark Wahlberg in…Robert Duvall/Jeff Bridges out

    -Michelle Williams in…Lesley Manville out

    Supporting could go anyway at this point. Looks like Christian Bale and Melissa Leo might have it all sewn up at this point.

    I agree with your ensemble picks. Though Inception or Black Swan could easily slip in.

    I got the craziest feeling Black Swan’s lack of ensembleness will lead to a singular nod for lead actress, but I’ve got my finger’s crossed for Kunis (and Hershey).

    Also to John Hawkes who gave a heck of a performance.

    Guy, you don’t think Eisenberg will get in for Best Actor? I know the guild would possibly nominate Robert Duvall or even Wahlberg but not over Eisenberg.

    ENSEMBLE:
    THE FIGHTER *WINS
    THE TOWN
    THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT
    SHUTTER ISLAND
    THE SOCIAL NETWORK

    ACTOR:
    JEFF BRIDGES – TRUE GRIT
    COLIN FIRTH – THE KING’S SPEECH *WINS
    MARK WAHLBERG – THE FIGHTER
    JAMES FRANCO – 127 HOURS
    LEONARDO DICAPRIO – SHUTTER ISLAND

    ACTRESS:
    NATALIE PORTMAN – BLACK SWAN *WINS
    NICOLE KIDMAN – RABBIT HOLE
    SALLY HAWKINS – MADE IN DAGENHAM
    ANNETTE BENING – KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT
    JULIANNE MOORE – KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
    CHRISTIAN BALE – THE FIGHTER *WINS
    GEOFFREY RUSH – THE KING’S SPEECH
    MARK RUFFALO – THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT
    SAM ROCKWELL – CONVICTION
    MATT DAMON – TRUE GRIT

    BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
    MELISSA LEO – THE FIGHTER *WINS
    AMY ADAMS – THE FIGHTER
    HAILEE STEINFELD – TRUE GRIT
    HELENA BONHAM CARTER – THE KING’S SPEECH
    JACKI WEAVER – ANIMAL KINGDOM

    And a little commentary — out of everyone being considered by SAG, I have to say, the beautiful quiet, understated, nuanced performance of Mark Wahlberg is, in my opinion, among the best of the year. That said, Colin Firth is winning.

    Julianne Moore is better than Annette Bening in the kids are all right. Yeah, I said it. But Natalie Portman should, and will, win.

    I didn’t even think Hailee Steinfeld was that good in true grit, but she’ll get nominated because it’s a weak category and could win if Amy Adams and Melissa Leo (who should win) split their vote. Crazy!

    And on a last note, please give Mark Ruffalo and Sam Rockwell their rightful nominations.

    Very Sincerely,
    A SAG Member who never gets chosen for the damn nominating committee!!!

    This whole Manville thing stinks.

    If Steinfeld, who is in almost every frame (so, I hear), can get a supp. campaign, why can’t Manville’s performance not get a less controversial placement by putting ‘her’ in supporting, too?

    I know category fraud stinks, but it happens every year, and Manville could have been a real contender instead of a hopeful.

    This isn’t a Winslet, Moore, Kidman whose clout can carry them a bit – this is Manville.

    Anyone thinking that ‘Mother and Child’ could pop up here in some capacity?

    An actors movie with tons of good actors in it; one of the first screeners sent out, etc..
