      Quvenzhane Wallis isn’t eligible for SAG. Gotta leave her out. :(

  • Amanda

    The SAG are voted by THE ACTORS and there is no chances Jennifer Lawrence get even a nomination. Marion is gonna win. She is praised by a lot of actors and directors for her commitment to work, her perfect career’s choices and the fact that she lost to Julie C. right before wining the oscar, so they kind of own her big! And I’m not talking about the fact that she’s been totally forgot for previous performances (“Nine”, “Inception” or “Midnight in Paris”) despite several others nominations ( Golden Globe, cesar…)

    • Roger

      The SAG are voted by THE ACTORS and there is no chances Jennifer Lawrence get even a nomination.

      Sorry, but this is a ridiculous statement. Jennifer Lawrence can win, even she got the SAG nom in 2010 against more famous names like Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams and Halle Berry. If she’s the favorite to win, she’ll win doesn’t matter her age, or the personal perception… Also, SAG loves child and young actors.

      The youngest winner ever for Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role was 26 (Gweneth Paltrow). Except maybe Angelina Jolie who was 24 but It was for a TV role.

      Let me ask this: How many times, an early 20s. actress have a real chance for winning in these 17 years of SAG?

      They didn’t gave it Marion Cotillard back in 2008 for “la vie en rose” so I think they will make up for it.

      They didn’t make up for it for George Clooney this season, even with three unsuccesful individual nominations, or maybe Alan Arkin, even when he’s veteran against Eddie Murphy

      Amanda/Antonio, I seriously think you’re Mika -The same troll / person from thefilmexperience and awardsdaily-, I love Marion Cotillard as an actress, but really dismissing Lawrence as an “average actress” who doesn’t win at any chance is troublesome for me. Please, give us a favor for the racional Cotillard fans, don’t make us as hooligans.

    • Antonio

      I agrre with the nice things you said about Cotillard but come on! No nomination, seriously? You must really don’t like her.

  • Guesto

    Speaking frankly, and especially considering the fact that Argo isn’t likely to be nominated in the leading categories (and even if it was) the acting powerhouse that is Lincoln should win this prize walking away. It’s main competitor would be Les Mis. Also wouldn’t be shocked to see Best Exotic replaced by Silver Linings.

    Seriously, though. Lincoln for the Win.

  • Guesto

    “and I’m not talking about the fact that she’s been totally forgot for previous performances (“Nine”, “Inception” or “Midnight in Paris”) ”

    She had no chemistry with DiCaprio in Inception and fine but not really a standout in Midnight in Paris. These weren’t exactly major snubs.

  • Guesto

    Absolutely have nothing against Cottilard though.

  • Antonio

    The youngest winner ever for Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role was 26 (Gweneth Paltrow). Except maybe Angelina Jolie who was 24 but It was for a TV role.
    I don’t see how Jennifer Lawrence could win.

      • Antonio

        It’s not me who said “The SAG are voted by THE ACTORS and there is no chances Jennifer Lawrence get even a nomination.”
        So please don’t attack me for something I didn’t said.
        I also didn’t said a word about Jennifer Lawrence or her chances. You clearly are a super Fan of her because you automatically thinks of her when I say that Marion Cotillard should win and you try to find any argument for proving me wrong.

        Are you in their head for knowing what they love or not? I don’t think so so speak for yourself.

        What I said are my personal thoughts and you should tell yourself that if I think this way others can too. Even if she wins it’s not gonna be by 70%. BTW That doesn’t mean J. Lawrence is not deserving of a SAG too. It just an observation about the past winners and their age when they won. BTW Jean Dujardin was too good so that’s not a good example.

        If you actually saw Silver Linings Playbook , you would know that she has less time on screen that Berenice Bejo in “The Artist” for example. BTW Cotillard gives a performance with multiple strong sex scenes + No makeup + she cries a lot + lot of anger… Compare to the crowed-pleasing performance of Jennifer Lawrence I personally thinks she won’t win. Again These are my personal thoughts.

        • Antonio

          And I relly don’t understand what you are saying about this Amand or Mika but I’m ANTONIO so don’t try to lie only for discrediting my comments. BTW I’ve never post any comments on the websites you’re talking about.

  • NoName

    Bare in mind that the SAG noms are announced on December 12th and Django Unchained is not released in North America until Christmas Day. As a result, unless Harvey Weinstein goes for the option of doing a limited release qualifying run before its release date, DiCaprio has no chance of making the final ballot…

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

      Screeners will be sent out for sure. They’re not gonna miss an opportunity to have their films at SAG especially given the new deadlines for Oscar.

  • Roger

  • UBourgeois

    No Tommy Lee Jones for Supporting? What’s the rationale there?

  • Lola

    Will the actors finally give Hugh Jackman his due (not win, but at least a nomination)? I mean, he is an immensely popular actor (I’m not citing THAT as the reason for his nomination), but EVERYBODY keeps talking about his insane talent, be it acting, singing, dancing, entertainer, etc. Where’s the recognition though? He’s won TWO Tony Awards. It’s funny that the Broadway community recognizes his achievements much more than his on-screen peers. Therefore, it would be a real icing on the cake if he gets nominated for playing such an iconic literary character (belonging to a legendary Broadway / West End musical).

  • Lola

    Supporting Actress – same line-up for the Oscars.
    I think the Brits in the Academy could push Hugh Jackman for an Oscar nomination (Jackman’s not a Brit, but the film has a heavy Brit connection, and the Brit voting bloc is quite significant; remember, Gary Oldman last year).
    Lead Actress – Jennifer L v/s Marion C.
    Supporting Actor – Philip Seymour Hoffman.
    Cast – Does not necessarily mean Best Pic. The cast that works well together the most – too tough to call right now.

  • UBourgeois

    I’m confused how you have three performances from The Master as very likely nominees and even possible winners but don’t have it being nominated for Ensemble. Surely it’s a more likely pick than Zero Dark Thirty, which seems to mostly be Chastain’s show.

    • steve

      I would assume this is because it’s not exactly a large enough group of performances to qualify as a true ensemble. The three (likely) nominees are really the main focus of the movie. If some of the “supporting” roles had been expanded…maybe it would be more of a threat for a nomination.

  • IAN

    Some of the people on here have suggested performers who haven’t even had their films released yet! How can you nominate stars you haven’t seen?. Just goes to show its not about the quality of the actual performance its popularity of the star.Just like the awards ,all based on studio politics, ‘ad campaigns’, who people are fans of. Its all about personal likes/ dislikes so the awards don’t really mean anything.Just enjoy the films.some good ones this year.

    • Dylan A

      They get to screen the films before they are released… they have seen them…

    —> Actually, Roger, Marlee Matlin is the youngest winner – being 21 when she won for Children of a Lesser God. Janet Gaynor was 23 when she won in 1929, and Hilary Swank was 25 when she won for Boys Don´t Cry.
