The most celebratory of the Guilds, the Screen Actors Guild is a full on awards show that’s televised and everything. That gives SAG a leg up on the other Guild prizes, in terms of exposure. Over the years, they’ve given some very cool winners, not always lining up with the Academy Awards. Today, we’re going to ask which of those have been your top choices to date.
In terms of prior SAG winners, Best Ensemble has some of their most interesting choices. Of course, many of you will be all about the “Black Panther” win, and rightly so. The same could be said of “The Birdcage,” “Hidden Figures,” and “Inglourious Basterds.” When the Screen Actors Guild goes in an unexpected direction, that’s when the real fun begins. These didn’t translate to Oscar, and sometimes didn’t even come close, but shocking endings during Phase Two of the awards season is never a bad thing.
Perhaps it’s one of the solo winners that does it for you? SAG sometimes coronates the expected four contenders, but that’s not always the case. Who knows, maybe you’re partial to the newest crop of victors we just saw rewarded over the weekend? That’s a totally valid take on things too. Recency bias isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If the four acting winners and new Best Ensemble recipient is what does it for you most, lean in to that!
We turn things over to you now, in the recent shadow of the Guild announcing last night. Which SAG winners have been the most pleasing to you over the years? All options are on the table and we can’t wait to find out your picks!
