Outside of Ruby Dee's nice win, things went just as expected at tonight's SAG awards. The front runners have officially been established, with supporting actress one of the only races that may prove to be worth anticipating come Oscar night. On the Best picture front, No Country for Old Men seems to be getting stronger with every passing day. The only thing that could derail it is if voters get sick of all the hype before they cast their ballots (think of it as the Brokeback Mountain curse if you will). Not much to say about anything else, except to express my love for Josh Brolin's show ending comment: "The Coens are freaky little people, man. And we made a freaky little movie, whether you liked the ending or not." Pure Genius.
Here are the winners:
Best Ensemble Cast: No Country for Old Men
Best Actor: Daniel Day-Lewis in There Will Be Blood
Best Actress: Julie Christie in Away from Her
Best Supporting Actor: Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men
Best Supporting Actress: Ruby Dee in American Gangster
