SAG Winner Predictions: Best Actress in a Supporting Role

The nominees: Ruby Dee in “American Gangster”, Amy Ryan in “Gone Baby Gone”, Cate Blanchett in “I’m Not There”, Catherine Keener in “Into the Wild”, and Tilda Swinton in “Michael Clayton”.
Who’s not here: Saoirse Ronan in “Atonement”.
For your information: Blanchett has five previous ensemble nominations (one win for “The Return of the King”), three individual nominations, one win in this category (for “The Aviator”), and another nomination to this year. Keener has two previous nominations for herself and her ensemble work. Swinton has a nomination for her work in the ensemble of “Adaptation” and the rest are first-time nominees. “American Gangster” and “Into the Wild” are nominated in the ensemble category.
Who should win: Blanchett
Who will win: As it has been so far, a toss-up between Blanchett and Ryan. I give the edge to Ryan here.
