Screen Actors Guild Awards Update: The Winners

sag-awards-logo

Hi all,

Our final update for the day, in which we bring you the winners from last nights SAG Awards ceremony, held in Hollywood. The SAG Awards, as well as the Golden Globes, are a pretty decent lead in to February’s Oscar show, and we get a chance to see how sentiment and emotion is swinging the votes for our favourite actors and directors. Here’s a short list of the winners of the major categories.

Best Cast (ie, Best Film): Slumdog Millionaire.

Best Male Actor (Film): Sean Penn, for Milk.

Best Actress (Film): Meryl Streep, for Doubt.

Best Actor in Supporting Role (Film): Heath Ledger, for The Dark Knight

Best Actress in Supporting Role (Film): Kate Winslet, for The Reader.

And so say all of us. Why they decided to use the term Best Cast in place of Best Film is beyond me: it’s almost like they went a little too politically correct. Slumdog Millionaire has now firmed as favourite to take home the Oscar next month. I, for one, hope it does.

Normally detesting these kinds of bios, Rodney's keen love of film more often outclasses his ability to write convincingly about them. Never blessed with a body worthy of a porn star, nor being the heir to a wealthy industrialists fortune, nor suffering the tragedy of having his parents murdered outside a Gotham theater, Rodney is, contrary to popular opinion, neither Ron Jeremy, JD Rockefeller, or Batman. As a serious appreciator of film since 1996, Rodney's love affair with the medium has continued with his online blog, Fernby Films, a facility allowing him to communicate with fellow cineasts in their mutual love of all things movie.
