SAG Awards: Quick Rundown

There were only five film categories, so there isn't much to write home about here. My prediction for Annette Bening to eclipse Natalie Portman was incorrect, and otherwise we have the frontrunners taking home the gold: Melissa Leo, Christian Bale, and Colin Firth. At this point, I think they're all unstoppable. The big game-changer tonight was the Best Ensemble win for "The King's Speech," which also won Tom Hooper the Directors Guild of America award last night. Both are somewhat surprising, putting "The King's Speech" in a very similar position to "The Hurt Locker" last year, which didn't even win the SAG ensemble award. I'm sad to say it, but at the moment, it looks like "The Social Network" may have peaked too early and may not win Best Picture. Any thoughts on the SAG show? I don't really have anything to say other than that it was cool to have the real Dicky up there when Bale was giving his speech.
