SAG recognizes the stars of ‘The Kids Are All Right’

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: Funny, I’m just so not tired of writing about ‘The Kids Are All Right’ getting award nominations!

We just don’t have many films about same-sex parents and their children – especially any that reach a mainstream audience, make some decent money at the box office and get all kinds of awards attention.

‘Kids’ stars Annette Bening and Julianne Moore as a longtime couple raising two children whose lives are turned upside down when their daughter, about to leave for college, tracks down her sperm donor father (Mark Ruffalo).

The cast was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award earlier this week for best ensemble, the SAG Awards equivalent of a best picture nod. They compete against the casts of ‘Black Swan,’ ‘The Fighter,’ ‘The King’s Speech’ and ‘The Social Network.’

Prediction: ‘The Social Network’ unless ‘The Fighter’ comes on strong.

Miss Bening, who won the SAG Award for ‘American Beauty,’ is nominated for best lead actress. In what must be a recurring nightmare for her, the competition includes Hilary Swank for ‘Conviction.’ Swank beat Bening both years where she was considered a front-runner for the Oscar when she was up for ‘Beauty’ and ‘Being Julia.’

But this time around, it is Bening who has more momentum as Swank was a surprise nominee. The rest of the field was expected, however: Nicole Kidman for ‘Rabbit Hole,’ Natalie Portman for ‘Black Swan,’ and Jennifer Lawrence for ‘Winter’s Bone.’

Prediction: It will come down to Bening and Portman. Bening is deserving and due but Portman is in the role of a lifetime. Still, my pick to win is Bening.
