    Nothing shocking, save perhaps for the double Django win. Laughed a little at the fact that this sheds zero light on the Best Actress race specifically, given the circumstances.

    • Elaine

      There was something “Shocking” last night. The loyal supporters of the Awards Circuit came on early so they can be a part of something they have been doing for years. But that “BOOB” Clayton couldn’t leave well enough alone and left many people stranded without participating with others. Once you start giving the impression that this site is “exclusive” to select people, thats when something you created so beautifully (The Awards Circuit) can crash and burn so quickly. Let’s hope this nonsense won’t happen again for the SAG Awards.

  • JamDenTel

    What does this mean for Best Picture? Neither Argo nor Les Mis have a Best Director nomination, and Lincoln only won for Best Actor. I think one of two things will happen:
    1. Argo wins regardless, being only the second Best Picture since 1932 to do it without a Director nomination;
    2. Lincoln takes it.

    That said…who knows?

    • Chucho E. Quintero

      Since 1932? What about “Driving Miss Daisy”?

      • JamDenTel

        That’s what I said. The second since 1932–the other being DMD.

        • PhiLL

          It looks like Argo for picture and Hanake for director. It seems like any chance of Silver Linings taking it died last night with the Catastrophe voting in the comedy/musical category. Made me sick. Can’t believe Les Miz beat out Silver Linings, let alone, won an award.

    • Divya

      It’s that kind of a crazy year, when anything (seriously, ANYTHING) is possible. Even SAG can’t be relied upon for Best Actress – last year, Viola Davis won SAG, but Meryl Streep won the Oscar.

      Django’s two wins were definitely a surprise. But fortunately, both those wins have been nominated for the Oscar – so it’s nothing completely outlandish or anything. Philip Seymour Hoffman won the Critics Choice Award, Christoph Waltz won the Golden Globe, any more surprises in store…who knows.

  • Kevin

    I was really happy with the awards tonight. Loved Argo winning big and making a statement, and also liked seeing Waltz win. Tina and Amy were excellent as well, and might have passed Ricky best hosts. The only thing that really irritated me about the Globes was how short of a time they let the winners talk. I realize they can’t talk too long, but cutting off a guy like Daniel Day Lewis, who I think looked a tad pissed, and who also won one the biggest awards of the night, after barely a minute of speaking. They did it all night, and I think it’s just disrespectful to the winners.

    • Divya

      I have now accepted Christoph Waltz as a major contender for Supporting Actor. I had no problems with him winning (despite supporting Philip Seymour Hoffman). Heck, I wouldn’t have had a problem even if ZDT or Lincoln had won.

    Pretty satisfying overall…

    • Ben

      I was not satisfied because I wasn’t able to blog. Clayton changed it during the show. This is outrageous. I know many people complained. But isn’t it funny how those posts are nowhere to be found??? The Awards Circuit has tainted itself with such a deplorable move against their followers

      Ben

      • http://TheAwardsCircuit Joey Magidson

        See what happened below…

      • Kevin

        It’s been explained thoroughly. What’s outrageous is you throwing a fit over a little problem.

    • Elaine

      Joey, Any comments on how loyal bloggers of the Awards Circuit were screwed royally last evening?

      • http://TheAwardsCircuit Joey Magidson

        I think Clayton’s explanation of what happened is concise and efficient…

  • Carrie

    Just a shame how the blog was changed midshow and others who don’t have Facebook were left not to participate during the show. Quite unprofessional.

    Carrie

    • Kevin

      Oh my god get over it. It wasn’t done on purpose and its not even that big of a deal. The fact people are crying about it is pathetic. Clayton explained what happened and apologized. Now get over something that wasnt even a huge deal.

      • Ryan

        Now Kevin, you’re reply makes things worse. Learn not to stir things up again. It’s over and done with. Clayton explained himself hours before your comment and no one has said anything. You or I can’t tell people to get over things. Take a moment and think about the things that would really bother you. You wouldn’t want someone saying “it’s not a big deal” to you on the things that set you off. :) Have a good day, Kevin.

        • Kevin

          You’re right, it was just bothering me people are calling it unprofessional and everything else when it was clearly unintended and explained. Have a good day as well.

    An explanation to everyone that was LIVE Blogging last night:

    The first thing to do would be to apologize to the bloggers that were inconvenienced by the mid-LIVE blog switch. Here’s the rundown.

    The Awards Circuit has been using CoverItLive.com for about 3 years now for night’s like the Golden Globes, SAG, etc.. We’ve never had a problem until last night. Without any prior notification, CoverItLive changed their settings for basic accounts ONLY allowing 100 clicks PER MONTH on a LIVE blog account. When we reached that threshold at only 10 minutes into the Golden Globes show, I had to act quickly. Doing a bit of research, I located another, more reliable LIVE blogging service “Blyve” that was able to be constructed and put together in just a few minutes. For the ones that were upset because they were in mid-conversation on the Cover It Live account, there were others that couldn’t even see the conversations that were being had.

    Cover It Live let the Awards Circuit down last night but in the process we found a more reliable, faster, and easier to navigate service as others were saying. Hopefully all the kinks have been worked out and I do apologize if anyone felt I was being unfair or unprofessional. I thought it would be more unfair and unprofessional to let the 22 people in Cover It Live to talk amongst themselves while the other 1000 readers that wanted to join the conversation would not be able to do so.

    I’ll see you all of you on SAG night!

      Clayton,

      These things happens. Unfortunately, it happened when everyone looks so forward to these special nights. Hopefully it won’t happen on SAG night. Look at it as passionate followers who don’t want to be left out. I’m sure it will be back to normal and great on SAG and Oscar night. :)

      Mike

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=26801810 Clayton Davis

        Thanks.

        Well since we switched to this new service which guarantees a lot more, we shouldn’t have a problem.

        Again, apologies to everyone but we look forward to having everyone on SAG night.

    Glad to see Affleck win something else, but I can’t be the only person who thinks Affleck missing the Oscar nomination isn’t a huge deal. Bigelow is by far the bigger snub. This movie trounces Hurt Locker and now she won’t have a chance to even compete. There were a lot of great directors this year and from the final five I’d probably swap Spielberg and Zeitlin out for Bigelow and Affleck. And nobody has yet to win these awards other than Affleck so who knows what’s going to happen! Especially if one of the two of them win the DGA. As for the Live Chat issue…were there really that many more people participating once it was switched over?

  • kailor

    adele is now the frontrunner!!

  • George

    Poor Affleck…every award he gets must sting even more after not even being nominated for Director. Sad Zero Dark Thirty got screwed out of screenplay and picture, but I think it can win those come Oscar night.

  • Jeremy DC

    I think Affleck not being nominated for director may be the best thing to happen to Argo’s chances at best picture. The way the rooms reacted at golden globes and critics choice makes me think they feel the need to make things right and they will award Affleck through best picture. I’ve thought Tarantino would win original screenplay for awhile now. His only competition is Haneke and he will be awarded with foreign language film. I think Mark Boal should win it but they won’t give it to him because of the controversy and he just won a few years ago and they won’t award him over Tarantino twice. I really liked Moonrise Kingdom but it has no chance and neither does Flight.
