Oscar Season: Screen Actors Guild Nominations

With the first big precursor to the Academy Awards in place, here’s what we know. “Steve Jobs,” despite being brushed off for its lack of box office, is still in the race at least as far as acting is concerned, with Michael Fassbender and Kate Winslet likely still in the front-running to getting Oscar nominations. Many pundits will now point out that a Best Picture winner needs a SAG nomination to be considered, with “Braveheart” being the last film to do so without a SAG nomination. That means many will be placing one of these five in the front running, and with “Spotlight” already landing on most people’s lists, that is the one with the most steam. No “The Martian” and no “Creed.” Also, no “Joy” and no “The Hateful Eight,” which pundits will say are not there for a reason. But I expect at least some love for these come Oscars. I’d go as far as to say Depp, DiCaprio, and Fassbender are locks for Best Actor. Larson, Ronan, and Blanchett are locks for Best Actress. I would love to see Michael Shannon get nominated for his role in “99 Homes,” just because I love his work in general. Mara, Vikander, and Winslet seem like safe bets for Best Supporting Actress. What I’m not expecting to get as much love from the Oscars is “The Big Short,” “Straight Outta Compton,” and “Trumbo,” although do not count any of them completely out either.
