PrizeFighter: SAG/PGA awards only cloud Oscar race

As the Academy Awards nominees continue marching down various red carpets on their way towards Oscar night, stopping along the way to receive various honors from various groups, the picture for the big night is supposed to become more clear. But after this weekend’s big guild award ceremonies, the opposite seems to have happened.

Going into Saturday night, Richard Linklater’s 12-year odyssey Boyhood had nabbed the title of odds-on Best Picture favorite—the little film that could belie all the odds of Hollywood’s conventional wisdom, flouting the traditional rules of filmmaking. Now, though, that teeny indie is no longer a sure bet. READ FULL STORY

Debbie Reynolds to receive 2014 SAG Lifetime Achievement Award


In January, the Screen Actors Guild will award its 51st Lifetime Achievement Award to Debbie Reynolds. Reynolds has been on the big screen, television, and theater in over 50 roles in her 66-year career, breaking out as Kathy Selden in 1952’s Singin’ in the Rain.

The 82-year-old actress has been nominated for five Golden Globe awards and one Oscar (for The Unsinkable Molly Brown, in 1965), but has never been nominated for a SAG award. Her most recent role was as Liberace’s mother in the Steven Soderbergh-directed HBO movie Behind the Candelabra.

“I’m thrilled that SAG-AFTRA is presenting our Life Achievement Award to Debbie Reynolds. She is a tremendously talented performer with a diverse body of screen and stage work, live performances and several hit records,” said SAG-AFTRA president Ken Howard. “Her generous spirit and unforgettable performances have entertained audiences across the globe, moving us all from laughter to tears and back again.”

Rita Moreno won the last SAG Lifetime Achievement Award. The next SAG Awards ceremony will be held on Jan. 25.

Screen Actors Guild noms: '12 Years a Slave' leads while 'The Butler' surprises -- BREAKING


Good news for 12 Years a Slave and The Butler … not so good for The Wolf of Wall Street.

The harrowing drama about a free black man who is kidnapped and sold into bondage on a Southern plantation had a leading four nominations at the Screen Actors Guild Awards this morning: best ensemble, lead actor for Chiwetel Ejiofor, and supporting bids for Michael Fassbender and newcomer Lupita Nyong’o.

Among the notable snubs were Robert Redford, the lone actor in the survival saga All Is Lost, and The Wolf of Wall Street, which got zero nominations.

The big surprise was The Butler, the blockbuster drama about a black man who spends a lifetime working in the White House under eight presidents. It hasn’t been present in many of the critics awards this season, but came on strong with three nods from the actors union: best ensemble, lead actor for Forest Whitaker, and supporting actress for Oprah Winfrey.

Also with three nominations each, including best ensemble: August: Osage County and Dallas Buyers Club.

Contenders for the SAG Awards were announced in both film and television fields this morning. The guild awards are closely watched as an Oscar bellwether since actors are the single largest voting bloc within the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

A nod here can cement an actor’s chances, while a snub can sometimes reveal a fatal lack of momentum. There’s no Best Picture prize, but the Screen Actors Guild’s Best Ensemble award is typically seen as a key stepping stone in that race for that Oscar. READ FULL STORY

'Beasts of the Southern Wild' ensnared in award season trouble

Beasts of the Southern Wild has become trapped in red tape.

The little indie movie that wowed Sundance, and has big potential as an award season contender, has run afoul of Screen Actors Guild bylaws that leave it out of the running for the group’s awards, being presented on Jan. 27.

The dreamlike film, about a little girl named Hushpuppy who is trying to survive a biblical-scale flood alongside her boozy father, did not — and seemingly still will not — cover its actors under a SAG-AFTRA contract, which means the guild won’t consider it for the SAG Awards.
