How art thou?
I am lovely, and I have been this way all weekend because it is time for one of my favorite award shows—the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.
I know what some may be thinking: Uh, what is the SAG Awards? The simplest answer that I can give you is that it is an award show for actors voted by actors.
Now, why is this show one of my favorites, might you ask? Well, because this show is voted on by the Screen Actors Guild, the votes are more genuine, and in my opinion, more honorable. Like I have said in the past, The Golden Globes and The Academy Awards are oftentimes disappointing—mainly because I think season-long award campaigns obstructs an honest vote. However, The SAG Awards are different. At this show, members of the guild acknowledge their peers for giving some of the best performances of the year. The votes are sincere, unsolicited and fair, and that is what I relish.
I have never done official predictions for the SAGs in the past, so this is a bit new for me, but I am pretty confident in my projections.
Per usual, I have refrained from predicting television awards because I have not watched a lot of the shows that have been nominated, and binge watching is a trap I refuse to fall for. Thus, here are my SAG FILM predictions for 2017.
