SAG Winner Predictions: Best Actress in a Leading Role

The nominees: Sandra Bullock’s Southern humanitarian housewife (The Blind Side), Helen Mirren’s Countess Tolstoy (The Last Station), Carey Mulligan’s perky student (An Education), Gabourey Sidibe’s pregnant underprivileged 16-year-old (Precious), and Meryl Streep’s Julia Child (Julie & Julia).
Who’s not here: Abbie Cornish (Bright Star), Emily Blunt (The Young Victoria)
For your information: Streep won her first SAG film award on her sixth nomination last year for “Doubt.” Mirren has gone two for two, winning for “The Queen” and “Gosford Park.” This is the first individual nomination for the other three. Mulligan is also up for Best Ensemble this year. For the past two years, the winner of this category has not gone on to win the Oscar.
Who should win: Mulligan
Who will win: This is one race where veteran Streep should take it over newbie Mulligan.
