SAG Awards Sunday Night — what will they tell us?

Image“Crash,” the surprise Best Picture Oscar winner from few years back, was the reminder anybody following the Oscars needed that the largest voting bloc in the Academy is actors.

The Screen Actor’s Guild had honored “Crash” with a bit of attention, so they were the ones who had accurately predicted that Oscar win.

Sunday night, the SAG Awards are handed out again. Will they go, big time, for “Lincoln,””Les Mis,” “Silver Linings Playbook” or throw awards all over the place?

The Producers Guild Awards also point to Best Picture/Oscar winners. From time to time. Is “Argo” the movie with momentum? Could be. But the SAGs only honored Alan Arkin with a nomination.

Keep in mind, SAG nominated Nicole Kidman for “The Paperboy,” and John Hawkes in “The Sessions” and Marion Cotillard for “Rust & Bone.” So the actors go their own way, in a lot of categories. Here’s the Oscar nominees list, in case you’ve forgotten.

The best cast award is a pretty good Oscar indicator. Watch for that. The SAG Awards are televised on TNT and TBS.
