SAG Awards Go To “Black Panther”, Emily Blunt, and The Oscar Frontrunners


Last night, the Screen Actors Guild brought forth their annual awards show, marking yet another point in the precursor season. With SAG in the books, we’re now only a few precursors away from it just being down to the Academy Awards. Before we get to Oscar, we need to look at what SAG opted to do. Faced with a chance to upend the race or confirm the presumed frontrunners, the actors union opted to…do both? Yes, it can never be simple. The nominations produced an unusual crop of nominees, so I suppose this only made sense, topped by one of the most unique Best Ensemble winners ever. More below…

In what some will see as an upset, Black Panther won Best Ensemble, beating previously seen as more likely Best Picture contenders in BlacKkKlansman and A Star Is Born. Elsewhere, Mahershala Ali in Best Supporting Actor for Green Book, Glenn Close in Best Actress for The Wife, and Rami Malek in Best Actor for Bohemian Rhapsody all furthered their presumed frontrunner (or close to it) status with wins yesterday. In Best Supporting Actress, however, with Regina King not nominated for If Beale Street Could Talk, an upset occurred. Emily Blunt took home the Actor for her role in A Quiet Place. If nothing else, that was a cool win to see.
