Oscars v. Screen Actors Guild Nominees

By Paul Sheehan – GoldDerby

HollywoodNews.com: Of this year’s 20 Screen Actor Guild nominees, 17 are now Oscar contenders. The only ones to miss out were SAG Actor nominee Robert Duvall (“Get Low”), SAG Female Actor nominee Hilary Swank (“Conviction”) and SAG Female Supporting Actor nominee Mila Kunis (“Black Swan”).

Last year, 19 of the 20 SAG acting nominees contended at the Academy Awards. SAG supporting actress contender Diane Kruger (“Inglourious Basterds”) was replaced on the Oscars ballot by Maggie Gyllenhaal (“Crazy Heart”).

In 2008, 18 of the 19 SAG acting nominees repeated at the Academy Awards. As double SAG nominee Kate Winslet was bumped up by the Oscars from supporting to lead for “The Reader,” she was denied a lead nod for “Revolutionary Road.” However, that film’s Michael Shannon managed to knock SAG nominee Dev Patel of “Slumdog Millionaire” out of the supporting race.

In 2007, 15 of the 20 SAG nominees went on to compete at the Oscars while in 2006 it was also 19 of the 20 with the one variation coming from the same film — “The Departed” — as SAG nominee Leonardo DiCaprio was replaced at Oscar time by Mark Wahlberg.

All five of this year’s SAG nominees for Best Ensemble number among the Best Picture lineup at the Oscars. Last year, four of the five SAG-nominated ensembles appear in Oscar-nominees with only “Nine” not making it into the academy’s top 10. In 2008, four of the five SAG-nominated ensembles also did so, with SAG contender “Doubt” replaced by “The Reader.” “Slumdog Millionaire” won both awards. In 2007, only one SAG ensemble nominee — “No Country for Old Men” — made it into the Best Picture race, although that film won both prizes as well. Back in 2006, it was three of five, with “Little Miss Sunshine” taking the SAG prize but losing the top Oscar to “The Departed.”
