The Guilds, some things to note.
SAG (Best Cast) Prediction:
Silver Linings Playbook
This weekend can mark a weekend of great change. In 2006, Little Miss Sunshine won the PGA, and became a hopeful to a true contender. It lost the Golden Globe and was mainly skunked out of a directing nomination. 2006's PGA also marked the beginning of the end of Dreamgirls.
2006 was one of the more messy years in recent memory, and I would like to see a major upset within this weekend. Like Zero Dark Thirty winning the PGA, but that's all just a dream.
Complete SAG predictions below:
Best Actor- Daniel Day-Lewis, Lincoln
Best Actress- Jennifer Lawrence, Silver Linings Playbook
Best Supporting Actor- No idea. Hoping for an upset, so Phillip Seymour Hoffman, The Master (No Django nominees)
Best Supporting Actress- Anne Hathaway, Les Miserables (duh!)
More after the jump discussing this weekend's significance.
Last year on this weekend, we saw Jean Dujardin win the SAG, and at that point was the beginning of the end.
Two years ago, The King's Speech won PGA, beating the much-loved The Social Network.
Three years ago, The Hurt Locker won the PGA, after Avatar won the Golden Globes. This is not a game-changer, since Hurt Locker won the lion's share of critics prizes.
Interesting thing to note this weekend- no Amour, no Beasts of the Southern Wild, despite their Oscar success.
