The 2011 SAG Awards has just concluded and like they always do, the ceremony starts with random actors from the audience stating those lines – minus the ‘wish’ part of course. That one’s mine. Unlike other award shows, since it’s the Screen Actors Guild, the honours are awarded to the actors and the cast only for movies and television. So don’t expect any writing and directing nods. The list of winners is below, and they are as expected. I guess now it’s safe to predict that Colin Firth and Natalie Portman will win the acting trophies on the Oscars as well as Melissa Leo and Christian Bale. On TV, Boardwalk Empire and Modern Family won top honours and Betty White got a surprise win too. I guess the SAG is not much Gleeks since the cast went home empty-handed.
