SAG Winner Predictions: Best Actor in a Leading Role

The competition: Demian Bichir’s hard-working dad (A Better Life), George Clooney’s Hawaiian businessman (The Descendants), Leonardo DiCaprio’s J. Edgar Hoover (J. Edgar), Jean Dujardin’s silent film actor (The Artist), and Brad Pitt’s baseball manager (Moneyball).

For your information: Oscar winner Clooney has never actually won an individual SAG Award, but this is his fourth acting nomination in seven years. Pitt was nominated previously in this category for “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.” DiCaprio has been nominated three times before, twice in this category. Bichir and Dujardin are both first-time nominees. Clooney and Dujardin are nominated as part of their films’ ensembles.

Who should win: Dujardin

Who will win: While I still think the Oscar will go to Dujardin, I think Clooney wins this award from this group.
