SAG Awards Celebrate Best among Actors

The SAG Awards are around the corner, with members of the Screen Actors Guild nominating and voting for who they believe to be worthy of the Shakespearean gold statue. Nominees were announced December 16, 2010 and voted on by the SAG members. The award show airs Sunday, January 30, 2011 at 8 p.m. on TNT and TBS.

Based on the movies and TV shows you watch, who do you think is most deserving of a SAG award?

Check out the nominees here and let me know who you are pulling for!


  1. I'm not much of an award show buff, but I did watch part of one with you (VMA's??? ha), so I figured I'd hook you up with a comment. From the top down:
    Fighter: unreal movie, plus I'm a closet Wahlberg fan
    Franco: love this guy, and a movie I can identify with, just too bad he sucked in Spiderman, Flyboys is a great movie
    Portman: I know she's your girl, and I just saw her on Top Chef
    Bale: sick performance - in every possible meaning of the word
    Kunis: didn't see it, just going with the underdog here
    Mad Men: great show
    30 Rock: waaaaay better writing than The Office
    Laurie: still the best
    Hargitay: anyone who beats up rapists wins in my book
    Baldwin: hilarious
    Fey: can you tell I'm a 30 Rock fan?
    Stewart: didn't see any of these, but a Star Trek fan
    Ryder: same scenario as above, and hot
    Inception: people falling everywhere, had to be great stunts
    Burn Notice: best show nobody knows about

  2. Christian Bale deserves to win for Male Actor in a Supporting Role in Fighter. Bale was incredible in that movie. He's unbelievably dedicated to the roles he plays, even to the point of looking emaciated – give the man the statue!

  3. "The Fighter" and "Mad Men."

    Just the fact they even MADE "The Fighter" makes me happy.

  4. I'll be 100% honest with you, I rarely watch any movies, but the one I saw this year was "The Social Network," and even though I don't have a Facebook account (I tweet!) I was thoroughly enthralled with the storyline from beginning to end.

    I've heard great things from my boss and co-workers about the HBO show "Boardwalk Empire." And I'm not really a fan of "Glee," because it doesn't accurately portray choir work in schools (but what do I know, I went to a school with no girls?).

    So take my opinions for what they're worth, but I liked "The Social Network."

  5. i'm with adam, not a big movie watcher but a good topic might be the do's and donts for celebs at awards shows i.e. speed up the speeches, don't wear something someone else is wearing, don't speak when hammered drunk...etc. i like knowing the dates of the shows too. i'll watch but i rarely know when they're going to be on.

  6. I'm torn between Social Network and Black Swan, both were great movies that I wouldn't mind seeing again.
