Tim's 26th Annual SAG Award Picks

Award Season is in full swing and tonight's stop is at the SAG Awards at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles!


Tonight's winners should give us a good look at who will potentially take home the acting Oscars in a few weeks. There are a lot of categories that seem pretty well set after some of the awards we've already seen throughout this season, but there's also going to be some surprises this year. Some of these categories could be decided by a coin flip they're so stacked. Here are my picks below. Who do you think will win?

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role

Joaquin Phoenix (“Joker”)

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role

Renée Zellweger (“Judy”)

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role

Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”)

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role

Laura Dern (“Marriage Story”)

If there's an upset here, my money would be on Jennifer Lopez taking the win for Hustlers. 

Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture

“Parasite” (Neon)

Possibly the toughest category of the night to pick. I could also see this going to Jojo Rabbit as well, but I think the voters are going to sway more towards the love everybody has had for "Parasite"

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries

Jared Harris (“Chernobyl”)

Another tough category but I think the Emmy winner repeats here

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries

Michelle Williams (“Fosse/Verdon”)

Michelle Williams and Patrica Arquette are clearly the front runners here, but I think Michelle Williams continues her winning tonight. 

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series

Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us”)

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series

Olivia Colman (“The Crown”)

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series

Andrew Scott (“Fleabag”)

Another tough category, but I think the love for "Fleabag" carries through here as a lot of people have been cheering for Andrew Scott all year. I think this is his win. 

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series


Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”)

Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series

“The Crown” (Netflix)

Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series

“Fleabag” (Amazon)

I feel bad picking against every one of these shows, but this is the year of "Fleabag" and I expect them to take this home. 

Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series

“Game of Thrones”

Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture

“Avengers: Endgame”

Tim's 77th Annual Golden Globe Picks

Award Season is officialy upon us as the 77th Annual Golden Globe Awards take place TONIGHT at the Beverly Hilton. This year's show is hosted once again by comedian Ricky Gervais.


As I mention every year, the Golden Globes are probably the most difficuly awards to try and predict. The Hollywood Foreign Press does show a lot of patterns with how they seem to vote for the Golden Globes, but even then they love to throw some curve balls at us.

So many of this year's categories are stacked with such incredible performances that I don't know how anybody could possibly pick who to vote for. I've spent a lot of time (that I probably should've been working) watching hours of these films and TV shows. Some I loved, some I couldn've done without, but even those I wasn't the biggest fan of doesn't mean they were bad. It simply means they weren't for me. There's so many great works of art throughout this years nominees that I hope you get a chance to see them all. Here are my predictions for this year's Golden Globe Awards.

Best Motion Picture – Drama

“The Irishman” (Netflix)

This will be the first category people will read and be angry with me not picking "The Joker". However when it comes to the Hollywood Foreign Press, they love Scorcese. I would be surprised to see something else win here. 


Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama

Renée Zellweger (“Judy”)


Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama

Joaquin Phoenix (“Joker”)

I wouldn't count out Adam Driver here. It's no secret that I'm not much of a fan of Joaquin Phoenix, and a lot of that comes from his attitude towards people. I think he's a brilliant actor, but I've seen and heard enough that I can do without him. I think hype is what potentially carries him to this win, but Adam Driver has been very open with the HFPA while doing the double press tour for Marriage Story and Star Wars


Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy

“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” (Sony)



Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy

Awkwafina (“The Farewell”)

Watch for the possible upset from Beanie Feldstein, but I think Awkwafina has this on lockdown. People have been talking about her performance in "The Farewell" since this premiered at Sundance last year. This is her time. Beanie will eventually get hers though, just not this year. But damn she was great in "Booksmart"!


Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy

Eddie Murphy (“Dolemite Is My Name”)


Best Motion Picture – Animated

“Toy Story 4” (Disney)


Best Motion Picture – Foreign Language

“Parasite” (Neon)


Best Actress in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture

Jennifer Lopez (“Hustlers”)


Best Actor in a Supporting Role in Any Motion Picture

Brad Pitt (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”)


Best Director – Motion Picture

Bong Joon-ho (“Parasite”)


Best Screenplay – Motion Picture

Quentin Tarantino (“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”)


Best Original Score – Motion Picture

Thomas Newman (“1917”)


Best Original Song – Motion Picture

“I’m Gonna Love Me Again” (“Rocketman”)


Best Television Series – Drama

“Succession” (HBO)

Look, I know the HFPA will most likely pick "The Crown". It's a fine show with great performances. But in a TV Drama I like a show that keeps me on the edge of my seat and can also make me laugh. That's what "Succession" does. If I need a nap I'll try and finish the last season of "The Crown".


Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama

Olivia Colman (“The Crown”)


Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama

Billy Porter (“Pose”)


Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy

“Fleabag” (Amazon)


Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy

Phoebe Waller-Bridge (“Fleabag”)


Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy

Bill Hader (“Barry”)

I would love to see Ben Platt win here for "The Politician", but after Hader lost last year, I think it's time for the HFPA to finally give him some love for one of the best shows of the year. 


Best Television Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

“Chernobyl” (HBO)

Don't be surprised if "Unbelievable" wins. Oh, you've never heard of "Unbelievable" before until this very moment and "Chernobyl" crushed at the Emmy's. Well that's basically dirty talk for the HFPA if past winners have taught us anything. But "Chernobyl" dominated the Emmy's for a reason. It was incredible. It should win. 


Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Michelle Williams (“Fosse/Verdon”)

Don't count out Helen Miren here, but Michelle Williams won this Emmy and I think the Globe is hers as well. 


Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Jared Harris (“Chernobyl”)


Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Toni Collette (“Unbelievable”)


Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

Andrew Scott (“Fleabag”)
