26th Screen Actors Guild Awards Highlight The Oscar Frontrunners


Seconds ago, the 26th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards came to an end. SAG voters had the option to confirm the frontrunners or upend the race. Unsurprisingly, they went almost entirely with the former, though an argument can be made that they did something pretty interesting with the latter. While four of the major Oscar categories are now essentially sewn up, the big Academy Award category of Best Picture just got some added chaos.

SAG went with the four frontrunners in the Acting categories, giving Joaquin Phoenix, Renee Zellweger, Brad Pitt, and Laura Dern wins. Phoenix (Best Actor for Joker), Zellweger (Best Actress for Judy), Pitt (Best Supporting Actor for Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood), and Dern (Best Supporting Actress for Marriage Story) are now all but assured of Oscars. Then, Best Ensemble went to Parasite, furthering its credentials as a real threat in Best Picture at the Academy Awards. Read on for more, and expect some further commentary very soon…
