I think you're right.

I really liked that for Rutger Hauer they used his "Tears in the Rain" speech from Blade Runner for the In Memoriam.  He wrote that speech himself.

I won't be mad if Pitt finally wins, but the same 4 leading the pack all season sort of makes for a dull telecast.  Best picture and director are up for grabs, but there isn't much excitement this time.  I think the shorter time this season leaves little room for unpredictability.

They just need to make sure they give a good speech. Brad's a sure thing so we'll worry about the other three.

Joaquin has come a long way since the Globes. Renee seems to be getting worse.

Yes it does. Which is why to be honest, I barely watched the Oscars two years ago. It was nothing against the actors but since I'm hardly some huge Frances McDormand or Gary Oldman, etc. fan, it was just "whatever".

And it wasn't just the acting. All the major categories that year was all but sewn up. The only thing that did have some intrigue was Best Picture because it was a close fight between Shape of Water and Three Billboards.

I think he realized he drank way too much at the Globes and adjusted his behavior accordingly.

I'm excited to see Pitt and Joaquin finally win, even if it's predictable. 

And there's a surprise, Parasite!

Parasite wins? 

Well then, at least Best Picture is going to be a tough one to call. 

The Irishman is losing steam very fast.

Interesting that Parasite won best acting ensemble and no individual nominations at all.  I've never even heard of this movie and everyone in the SAG audience is just going crazy for it.

Parasite really is an ensemble piece.  It would be very difficult to separate out a lead vs. supporting role.

I should have guessed that Parasite might win with the ovation it received. Best Picture might be the most up in the air award left.

I think that happened last year with Black Panther.

Seriously go see it, it's such an amazing movie. It's a movie that will stay with you long after it's over.

I actually called this. I think it's a nice way to reward the actors who all did such a great job but none were singled out for their individual performances.

IT IS FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!

The individual actors are brilliant and their lack of recognition at the Globes, SAG, and Oscars has been a point of controversy this awards season.

I don't know if Allison Janney has a project she's promoting or not but it's sweet that she's sitting with Margot Robbie.

Allison's there as part of Bombshell ensemble.

Irishman and Marriage Story have both lost a lot of steam. Heading into Oscars, this is all about Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, 1917 and Parasite.

That's how I felt about Spotlight some years ago. I know Rachel McAdams and Mark Ruffalo got individual acting nods for it but honestly, I felt the film was such a collective work.

Ok does anyone know why the SAG awards are so sober? Compared to the Golden Globes and even the Academy Awards the SAG awards often seem like a funeral.

Because it’s a televised work event. The actors are the voting body and the winners, so they’re hosting the event too.

I thought it was a good show but I think it seems more serious for a few reasons: 1) anyone who got a little too drunk happy at the Globes is probably on their best behavior, 2) this is their own guild awarding them instead of 100 foreign journalists so the award automatically means much more, and 3) the Oscar nominations are already announced so the winners here know their chances of winning there have increased dramatically which then has a major effect on their careers.

I think when the field got defined and the coast cleared, people realized there are much more creative and fresh films out there. 

Plus who knows, there may still be a bias against Netflix in the industry. 

I'm just so happy for Parasite - the little engine that could. Hopefully, this opens more doors for Bong Joon Ho in Hollywood. He really is a creative storyteller.

Yeah, I agree. Other than the Tom Hanks tribute I enjoyed this show more (and the Robert DeNiro tribute here was really good.) Brad Pitt is coming with the jokes in all his speeches and it's great. I LOVED what DeNiro said about how it doesn't matter if you're an actor, musician, athlete, etc. you have every right to speak up about what happens in this country.

Even though he's been losing all of the major awards for some reason I had a feeling Sam Rockwell would win tonight. Clearly he had no idea which might be why he forgot to comb his hair. Jharrel Jerome might need to work on his gracious loser face because he looked kind of pissed.

I was livid with the curtain call montage. Once again Elementary was left out. It sucked when they did that at the Emmy's but they left off a lot of shows. This time they were a whole bunch of shows and still it was left out despite being on air for seven years.

Luke Perry in the In Memoriam gets me every time! 😭

Joaquin's speech was my favorite, though. So sweet and sincere and cute. I don't know if they just didn't have time or she wasn't in the audience at the time or they weren't prepared for it, but I was almost surprised after he mentioned Heath they didn't cut to a shot of Michelle Williams. But it was really sweet that he mentioned him.

Looks like Joey King pulled a Susan Lucci this award season-- she was nominated for all four awards (Emmy, Globe, Critics, SAG), and went 0-for-4, all to Fosse/Verdon!

So humor me this - I haven't seen The Morning Show, but obviously it was beloved by SAG with 3 noms and a win for Jennifer. If it was that beloved enough, does it make sense for it to miss the Ensemble nom?

Elementary--the red headed step-child that never got the love it deserved. Like you said, it was on for seven years, made a shit ton of money for CBS, and hardly ever got any recognition, during or after its run. It will forever annoy me that Jonny Lee Miller was never recognized for his portrayal of Sherlock.

<sigh>

I wonder how Clyde is doing.

Aside from that glaring omission, I enjoyed the show.

Not that I'd ever want Brad Pitt to get back together with Muff Mouth, aka Jennifer Aniston, but I'd like to imagine smoke coming out of Angelina's ears seeing them together after the SAG awards.

Clyde is munching on his lettuce and ignoring whatever antics the strange humans are up to now.

When she took a break from acting she went home to Texas. I think the accent came back and she's just going with it now.

This reminds me of Hugh Grant talking about Renee during his Inside the Actors Studio interview.  He said that her British accent was so good that when "Texan Renee" finally came out at the wrap party, he found her "frankly, unconvincing."  Hee.

Always. She was born and raised in Texas.

My sisters and I grew up outside Houston and I now live elsewhere.  Sometimes people think I have no accent, and sometimes they laugh at how strong it is. Some of my sisters have really thick accents and some have none.  It’s kinda fascinating.

I wonder if Renee’s nerves play a part in how much Texas comes out.
