The Screen Actors Guild Awards Recap!

The Screen Actors Guild Awards were last night, and these are the last major awards to be handed out before the crème de la crème of the award season; the Oscars.

The SAG awards are a pretty big deal, because a lot of the time the winners go on to take home the little golden man that will be awarded at the end of February.

While there have been a few shoo-ins for certain categories (like Anne Hathaway, who has cleaned up this awards season for her portrayal of Fantine in Les Misérables), it has been pretty wide open competition with many surprises.

One of the big questions going into this award show was who was going to take best actress. The race has been between Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook) and Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty), who have both won for their respective categories – lead actress in a drama, and lead actress in a comedy/musical. 

But now with the categories added together there can only be one winner – and tonight, it was Jennifer Lawrence. Now does this mean she is the shoo-in for the Oscar? Definitely not; the race continues.

As for the rest of the winners: Argo won for best cast in a motion picture, Daniel Day-Lewis won best actor in Lincoln, Tommy Lee Jones also won for his supporting role in Lincoln, and Anne Hathaway for Les Misérables.

The SAGs are not just for film though, they also cover television, and with the way the television award season had been going there were definitely a few surprise wins here.

For lead actor and actress in a comedy series the awards went to Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin for 30 Rock (which is having its series finale on Thursday).

Another big shock came when the award was announced for best ensemble in a drama series. Downton Abbey came out on top beating shows like Homeland and Breaking Bad which have been dominating the award season.
