SAG Awards Winners

No big surprises at the SAG Awards tonight. In fact, one could've just copied and pasted the winners from last week's Golden Globes ceremonies and no one would be the wiser (which is why I just took the winner's portraits from last week's Golden Globes for the image above). The only differences are Inglourious Basterds winning the Best Ensemble which is their Best Picture equivalent and Tina Fey taking home Best Actress in a Comedy. Avatar and Toni Collette won those respective awards at the Globes.

The other winners are:

Best Ensemble: Inglourious Basterds
Best Actress: Sandra Bullock, The Blind Side
Best Actor: Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart
Best Supporting Actress: Mo'Nique, Precious
Best Supporting Actor: Christoph Waltz, Inglourious Basterds

Best Ensemble, Drama: Mad Men
Best Ensemble, Comedy: Glee
Best Actress, Drama: Julianna Marguilies, The Good Wife
Best Actress, Comedy: Tina Fey, 30 Rock
Best Actor, Drama: Michael C. Hall, Dexter
Best Actor, Comedy: Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock
Best Actress, Miniseries: Drew Barrymore, Grey Gardens
Best Actor, Miniseries: Kevin Bacon, Taking Chance

It's hard to really say what this means for the TV winners, but for the film winners, this is just another step to the Oscars. Winners of a SAG award almost always go on to get nominated and more often than not, win at the Oscars. And the four acting winners have won other big awards before this, so watch out for all of them to not only reap nominations, but perhaps their first Oscar statue.

The only real wildcard, if you really want to call her that, is of course the great Meryl Streep. She tied with Bullock at the Critics Choice Awards and won Best Actress in a Comedy at the Globes (Bullock won Best Actress in a Drama). The SAG Awards was supposed to be the unofficial tiebreaker especially with Bullock not eligible at the BAFTAs. So will Meryl Streep go yet another year without nabbing her third Oscar? Who knows really, but Bullock definitely has the momentum right now.
