Today is the 2013 SAG Awards! For those of you that are not familiar with the SAG Awards, they are the Screen Actors Guild Awards. These awards are voted on by other members of the Screen Actors Guild. Basically, the the winner of each award was voted on by their fellow actors and actresses.
The SAG Awards have a very special spot in mine and Jordan's heart as we have been diligently working towards earning our SAG cards.
This years nominations are such a fine class of actors and actresses. When I make my picks of the nominations, I tend to stress myself out over them. I don't know why, but I do. There are just so many great performers to pick from. After my dismal 52% on my picks and overlooking Game Change during the Golden Globes a few weeks back, I took a little more time and watched a few extra shows before todays SAG Awards. Lets hope that I do better this time around. Here are my picks!
Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Supporting Role
Robert De Niro - Silver Linings Playbook
(Once again, I found this category really hard to make a pick. Every actor nominated in this category was phenomenal in their roles. I think they should just call Tommy Lee Jones name whether he wins it or not just to see if we can get any emotion out of him.)
Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Supporting Role
Ty Burrell - Modern Family
(Wow! What an incredible group of hilarious actors in this category. I really had a hard time making my pick. I think this could still go to Ty Burrell's co-star on Modern Family, Eric Stonestreet. I could also see Jim Parsons getting this for Big Bang Theory.)
Sofia Vargara - Modern Family
(I feel so guilty for picking against Tina Fey here. If she ever sees this, and we ever meet, I hope that she will forgive me. I think this is Sofia Vargara's year.)
Outstanding Performance By An Ensemble In A Comedy Series
Julianne Moore - Game Change
Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Television Movie Or Miniseries
Kevin Costner - Hatfields and McCoys
Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Drama Series
Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Drama Series
Bryan Cranston - Breaking Bad
(I was shocked when Damian Lewis won the Golden Globe for this. Nothing against Lewis, but I think most of them in this category are far better performers. I don't have to spend the whole episode of Breaking Bad asking what the hell Bryan Cranston just said like I do when I've watched Homeland.)
Outstanding Performance By An Ensemble In A Drama Series
Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Leading Role
(another category where I think there were better cast performances, but I think this will be how people voted. I would love to see it go to Argo or Lincoln though.)
Game of Thrones
To find out how I did, make sure to watch the SAG Awards TONIGHT on TBS or TNT @ 8PM ET.
