Final SAG Predictions

The Screen Actors Guild will announce its picks for the best in film (and television) tomorrow morning at 10am. I made a point to write up my predictions before the Golden Globe nominations were announced since I didn’t want them to unduly influence me since SAG voters may feel differently than Globe voters about certain performances. I didn’t expect Shia LaBeouf or Maggie Smith to earn Globe nominations, but it’s probably safer to leave in the latter than the former. I still think Scarlett Johansson might land a double nomination. Robert De Niro got snubbed by Globe voters, but I feel like SAG might like him. And the cast of “Little Women” still has a shot too, but if it misses, that’s bad news for its Oscar prospects. Antonio Banderas, Christian Bale, and Jonathan Pryce are still threats for Best Actor, Cynthia Erivo and Lupita Nyong’o for Best Actress, Anthony Hopkins for Best Supporting Actor, and Kathy Bates and Annette Bening for Best Supporting Actress. The only change I’ll make is to put Hopkins in for supporting actor, though it feels weird to do that without Pryce. Here’s hoping for good surprises! I’ll have reactions by category tomorrow.
