2009 Screen Actors Guild Awards Winners

Tonight show was definitively more entertaining than the Golden Globes as at least had clips from films and a remarkable In Memoriam where always I find actors that passed away and I was not aware. But this year the most remarkable thing about this remembrance was the absence of Heath Ledger that unless I blinked he was not included… I just found that the reason he was not there was because he was featured in the 2008 reel, but definitively looked like a huge omission in the 2009 reel, isn't?

There are some surprises among the winners suggesting that the Oscars could be more entertaining with categories that now does not seem will have a “sure” winner. So, here are some of the winners.

Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture: Slumdog Millionaire
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role: Meryl Streep in Doubt
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role: Sean Penn in Milk
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role: Kate Winslet in The Reader
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role: Heath Ledger in The Dark Knight

To check the TV winners go here.

What I believe will be more interesting is to find who will win the best actress at the Oscars as there is no doubt that the race has to be between Kate Winslet and Meryl Streep and both won awards today for the same roles the are nominated at the Oscars. Also the sort of winning strike by Mickey Rourke is broken and now we have Sean Penn in competition.
