2014 Screen Actors Guild Award Winners

sag_logo

The SAG is the largest guild who vote for the Oscars, and that’s exactly the reason why people pay close attention to the SAG awards. The nominees for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture were:

12 Years a Slave
American Hustle
August: Osage County
Dallas Buyers Club
Lee Daniels’ The Butler

Of these nominees, 12 Years a Slave and American Hustle are favorites for Best Picture, though Dallas Buyers Club is certainly gaining momentum with its support for McConaughey and Leto. But when they announced the winner, the front-runner took the award, American Hustle. Does this make it the clear favorite to win Best Picture? At the moment, yes.

Here are the other winners from the ceremony (winners are in bold):

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role

Bruce Dern (Nebraska)
Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave)
Tom Hanks (Captain Phillips)
Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club)
Forest Whitaker (Lee Daniels’ The Butler)

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role

Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine)
Sandra Bullock (Gravity)
Judi Dench (Philomena)
Meryl Streep (August: Osage County)
Emma Thompson (Saving Mr. Banks)

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role

Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips)
Daniel Bruhl (Rush)
Michael Fassbender (12 Years a Slave)
James Gandolfini (Enough Said)
Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club)

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role

Jennifer Lawrence (American Hustle)
Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave)
Julia Roberts (August: Osage County)
June Squibb (Nebraska)
Oprah Winfrey (Lee Daniels’ The Butler)

Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture

All is Lost
Fast & Furious 6
Lone Survivor
Rush
The Wolverine

It’s noteworthy that Jennifer Lawrence didn’t win the Supporting Actress category, falling to Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave). This will be a huge shift to what everyone thought was a lock for Lawrence to win her second Oscar. Nyong’o might be 12 Years a Slave’s best chance at snagging a Top 6 Oscar award, and people may very well vote that way.

  1. As a SAG member, I voted for “American Hustle” for Best Ensemble because I believed it was the most interesting and eclectic collection of performances. However, I do NOT feel it is the best overall film of the year, and selections such as “Her” and “Nebraska” are much better movies. The SAG ensemble choice is NOT a clear indicator for the Best Picture Oscar—look no further than the SAG win for “The Help” a couple of years back. That being said, I think the 3 frontrunners for the Academy Award are “Hustle”, “Slave” and “Gravity”. ML

      You’re right, the SAG ensemble choice isn’t a clear indicator, but it’s certainly an indicator nonetheless with the largest guild leaning towards one film. As for Best Picture – SAG Ensemble goes, it has matched six times out of the last decade, which makes it important.

      It’s most definitely a race between Hustle, Gravity, and Slave at the moment. The PGA awards mixed everything up with Gravity and Slave tying for the big award. Assuming Cuaron will win the DGA, it’s practically a toss-up with no film riding a lot of momentum going into March.
