Judging by the Critics’ Choice Award winners, I think the SAG awards may go differently in some categories than my list below.  But I’m going with these nominees as my favorites since I either saw the movies or at least saw more about them up to this point.


  • Male Actor, Lead: Tom Hanks (“Captain Phillips”)
  • Male Actor, Supporting: Daniel Bruhl (“Rush”)
  • Female Actor, Lead: Sandra Bullock (“Gravity”)
  • Female Actor, Supporting: Jennifer Lawrence (“American Hustle”)
  • Cast in a Motion Picture: “American Hustle”
  • Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture: “Fast & Furious 6” or “Rush”


  • Male Actor, TV Movie or Mini-Series: Matt Damon (“Behind the Candelabra”)
  • Female Actor, TV Movie or Mini-Series: Helena Bonham Carter (“Burton and Taylor”)
  • Male Actor, Drama Series: Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”)
  • Female Actor, Drama Series: Claire Danes (“Homeland”) or Maggie Smith (“Downton Abbey”)
  • Male Actor, Comedy Series: Jim Parsons (“The Big Bang Theory”)
  • Female Actor, Comedy Series: Mayim Bialik (“The Big Bang Theory”)
  • Ensemble, Comedy: “The Big Bang Theory”
  • Ensemble, Drama: “Breaking Bad” or “Game of Thrones”
  • Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series: “Game of Thrones”

I’ll have to see more of the nominated films and sometime, get past seasons of various shows on DVD.  I’m looking forward to seeing which nominees win at the Oscars this year.
