The 2013 Screen Actors Guild Award Winners

Just less than 24 hours after the Producers Guild Awards named Argo Best Picture, the film has racked up another huge honor- Best Ensemble Cast. That award is the Screen Actors Guild Awards equivalent to Best Picture. Once the underdog, the Ben Affleck flick is shaping up to be the Oscar frontrunner.

I have to say the Best Picture race is one of the most competitive in years. Early in the awards season it looked like a two-way race between Zero Dark Thirty and Les Miserables as they steamrolled through the critics awards. Then Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln came on strong, nabbing several major accolades including the most Oscar nominations at this year’s Academy Awards. Now it seems its Argo‘s race to lose. Ever since Affleck was snubbed of a Best Directing Oscar nomination, the film has been the beneficiary of a huge wave of support. With less than a month of voting left, the race could flip once again. Thankfully, this year’s Best Picture Oscar isn’t a foregone conclusion yet.

Speaking of sure things, Daniel Day-Lewis and Anne Hathaway continued their way on the road to Oscar glory. The two picked up another Best Actor and Best Supporting Actress award respectively. Meanwhile in Best Actress, the SAGs made the race a bit clearer. Jennifer Lawrence beat Jessica Chastian, giving the Silver Linings Playbook actress an edge at the Academys. Both ladies won at the Golden Globes, but were separated by drama and comedy categories. If any Oscar precursor has the best record with the acting categories, it’s the SAGs. That said, they got it wrong last year when Best Actress went to Viola Davis, but Meryl Streep earned her third Oscar statue. Check out all the film and television winners below.

    i think the only competitive category might be the best supporting actor category. i always saw lincoln as one of those movies that could had an outstanding role but overall as a movie was just good not outstanding. argo seemed more like an overall outstanding movie since none of its actors are singled out for praise. im suprised silver linings playbook isn’t getting any momentum considering the number of acting nominations it got.

    But is ARGO really a better movie than LINCOLN? does it deserve the Best Picture award than Lincoln? Ten years from now, what will we think as a better film, Lincoln or Argo?

    well crash won best picture over brokeback mountain and the only reason people remember crash is because it stole the best picture award from brokeback mountain. so it could happen regardless of the quality of film.
