16th Screen Actors Guild Awards Winners

By sheer coincidence I was able to watch the end of the awards show and was able to learn the winners that now I'm posting here in *RED. These awards are "fairly reliable" indicators of Actors awards at the Oscars, but I still believe that the Best Actress category will be interesting as there has to be a race between Sandra Bullock and Meryl Streep.

Today we start with the Guilds as the Actors announced their nominations. These nominations start to give light on possible Oscar nominations as many SAG members are also academy members. I believe that we can start to see a pattern for the actors and for Best Actress I will be very surprised if Meryl Streep does not get an Oscar nod and well, seems Sandra Bullock could get one too. Anyway here are the nominations.

An Education
The Hurt Locker
