The SAG Awards are today at 8 pm est., airing on TBS and TNT. I’m very excited for this award show because the theme is CLASSIC HOLLYWOOD. For starters, Shirley Temple Black is receiving the lifetime achievement award and there is going to be a BIG surprise. (I hope it’s Paul Newman.)
Who Should Win: Phillip Seymour Hoffman Although I still have not seen Capote, I am convinced that he should win.
Who Will Win: Phillip Seymour Hoffman. His 15 wins in the critics’ circles compared to Heath Ledger’s lowly five practically guarantees him another win tonight. He’s been around longer than Ledger and is more respected. But actors are weird, so a surprise is likely.
Female Actor in a Leading Role
Judi Dench, Mrs. Henderson Presents
Felicity Huffman, Transamerica
Charlize Theron, North Country
Reese Witherspoon, Walk the Line
Zhang Ziyi, Memoirs of a Geisha
Who Should Win: Felicity Huffman. She should for taking on a challengeing role and being a consistent and excellent actress. But I’m expecting her to win for Desperate Housewives. If she doesn’t, then she will probably win in this category.
Who Will Win: Reese Witherspoon She was the heart and soul of Walk the Line. Honestly, I’m not sure who the winner will be but whoever wins will be the frontrunner for the Academy Award.
Male Actor in a Supporting Role
Don Cheadle, Crash
George Clooney, Syriana
Matt Dillon, Crash
Paul Giamatti, Cinderella Man
Jake Gyllenhaal, Brokeback Mountain
Who Should Win: Paul Giamatti. Just because I love him and he always delivers a top notch performance. And actors love him.
Who Will Win: George Clooney. Again, actors love him and by giving him the SAG Award, guild members will also feel like they are honoring Good Night, and Good Luck.
Female Actor in a Supporting Role
Amy Adams, Junebug
Catherine Keener, Capote
Frances McDormand, North Country
Rachel Weisz, The Constant Gardener
Michelle Williams, Brokeback Mountain
Who Should Win: Amy Adams. although I LOVED Rachel Weisz in The Constant Gardener, after I saw Junebug the other day I became convinced that she is the rightful winner.
Who Will Win: This one was a tough one but I’m guessing Rachel Weisz but Michelle Williams could easilyw in this category.
Good Night, and Good Luck
Hustle & Flow
Who Should Win: Crash. Easily the best ensemble in years.
Who Will Win: Crash. By awarding Crash with the Best Cast award, all the actors (including nominees Matt Dillon and Don Cheadle) will be rewarded for their risky and amazing work.
