SAG predictions

The SAG nominations will be announced tomorrow morning at 8:00 am central.  I expect Meryl to be nominated in Supporting for her role as the Witch in Into the Woods.  Of course there's a chance she misses, but with the early word of mouth the film, and particularly Meryl, has received, she should be in really good standing for consideration.  My five picks for Meryl's category are as follows:

1. Meryl Streep (Into the Woods)
2. Patricia Arquette (Boyhood)
3. Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game)
4. Emma Stone (Birdman)
5. Jessica Chastain (A Most Violent Year)

Laura Dern could very well sneak into the fifth slot for her role in Wild, with a smaller chance for Carmen Ejogo in Selma.  I'll add my Golden Globe predictions (which are announced Thursday) tomorrow after SAG announcements are made.

In related news, yesterday was the world premiere of Into the Woods, with Meryl present on the red carpet. She's looking pretty good these days.


  1. Meryl is no where to be found in the
    Critic nominations. Does that not concern
    You regarding her chances for the guild

    1. It's a mild concern, but SAG members are a very different group from Critics groups, as is the Hollywood Foreign press. I'd be shocked if she did not make it into both.

    2. I was mildly surprised but it's nice to share the applause with lesser actresses as well. I would love Meryl to at least win one big one whether it be the SAG ensemble, a Golden Globe or Bafta.

      I am thinking she stands a very good chance of winning for Ricki next year at the globes so depending on her placement this year, I'm not too concerned for a loss. Maybe they will throw Aniston a bone in the Musical/Comedy section.

      I don't care too much for her dress but she looks just as hot as she did in It's Complicated 5(!) years ago!
