SAG Nominees: Best Ensemble Cast in a Motion Picture

My predictions: 4/5
What’s missing: Hugo, Moneyball, The Tree of Life, War Horse, Drive, Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, J. Edgar, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Ides of March

One big surprise here: comedy Bridesmaids makes the cut, which is a fun choice. Actually, depending on how things sort out tomorrow, this could be the Best Motion Picture – Comedy/Musical list, which would be extremely interesting. The Help comes out strong today with three acting nominations, while The Artist has two, and The Descendants has one. Rounding out the list is Midnight in Paris, which may still be a Best Picture Oscar contender, but it’s too early to tell just yet if it will make it all the way. In terms of the snubs, “Hugo” might have done well to get in here, but otherwise nothing that needed to be here wasn’t. The Golden Globes should still offer much helpful information on what Best Picture might look like.

What could win? Probably “The Help.”
