Final SAG Predictions

With the announcement of the Critics’ Choice nominations today, we’re well into Oscar season. The Screen Actors Guild, announcing unusually before the Golden Globes (by one day), will provide the first certifiably semi-accurate look at what the Oscar list could shape up to be. I’m wondering whether Glenn Close will in fact get in, and this is going to be an important moment for “The Artist” and “Drive” and several other films that may waver in the acting categories. I’m still banking on “The Ides of March” doing very well here, but we’ll see. “Young Adult” may make a showing in several categories. Nominees will be announced in the morning, and I’ll be here with reactions by category.
