SAG Awards Results and What They Mean for the Oscars

sag-awards-2016

This past weekend the Screen Actors Guild handed out their yearly awards for film and television acting. I have updated the Oscar Predictions page to reflect what we’ve learned.

But really, what have we learned? Well, Saturday’s winners went something like this:

Film
Ensemble – Spotlight
Actor – Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant
Actress – Brie Larson, Room
Supporting Actor – Idris Elba, Beasts of No Nation
Supporting Actress – Alicia Vikander, The Danish Girl
Stunt Ensemble – Mad Max: Fury Road

TV
Ensemble, Drama – Downton Abbey
Actress, Drama Series – Viola Davis, How to Get Away with Murder
Actor, Drama Series – Kevin Spacey, House of Cards
Ensemble, Comedy Series – Orange is the New Black
Actress, Comedy Series – Uzo Aduba, Orange is the New Black
Actor, Comedy Series – Jeffrey Tambor, Transparent
Actress, TV Movie/Mini-Series – Queen Latifah, Bessie
Actor, TV Movie/Mini-Series – Idris Elba, Luther
Stunt Ensemble – Game of Thrones

This diverse list stands in stark – seemingly deliberate – contrast to the current list of Oscar nominees and the #OscarsSoWhite controversy that has surrounded them. Those who defend the nominations by arguing that “maybe all of the best performances actually just happened to be from white actors this year” – yes, some people actually said that – were answered by Idris Elba’s not one but TWO trophies.

As for those Oscars and their eventual outcome, that Supporting Actor win interestingly gives us our biggest clue, despite Elba not being nominated. Historically, even when the nominees don’t line up exactly, SAG has always given it’s trophies to actors who were also nominated for Oscar. In this case that should’ve been Mark Rylance or Christian Bale. The fact that they lost tells us that their candidacies are not a strong as we once thought. Had either of them won, they would’ve been a strong threat to the current Oscar frontrunner, Sylvester Stallone. But since he doesn’t have to worry about competition from Elba, Sly actually gets a boost from this win.

Supporting Actress has been a pretty close race between Alicia Vikander and Rooney Mara. Both are actually lead roles relegated the supporting category, a fact that helps nominees more often than not. (There’s a slight threat from Golden Globe winner Kate Winslet, but while her presence is more likely to pull votes away from the two leads, it’s not clear who actually benefits more from this.) But Vikander’s win this weekend, combined with actually giving two awards-worthy performances this year, gives her a solid lead above the rest.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larsen have been frontrunners in the lead categories most of this race. While Saoirse Ronan may have had a little bit of heat from the early season, SAG essentially just gave our leads a platform to practice their Oscar speeches.

The most interesting result was Spotlight.

Spotlight

The Ensemble award is SAG’s equivalent to Best Picture. Spotlight was the presumed frontrunner until The Big Short took the PGA a couple weeks ago. The two had pretty much the same precursors leading up to that, except for Spotlight curiously missing out on an ACE Eddie nomination. Still, it’s a far more universally well-liked movie. It has no drawbacks and offends absolutely no one. That’s the kind of thing that usually does win with the preferential balloting system used by exactly two groups: the PGA and the Oscars’ Best Picture.

Since the Oscars started using the preferential ballot for Best Picture 6 years ago, they have matched the PGA every single year. Since The Big Short came out ahead with the PGA, it moved pretty solidly into the lead. It’s a very strong statistic, and one that may yet hold, despite the latest development.

But Spotlight‘s SAG win does make things interesting. It clearly has a great deal of support, and would make a great winner. Honestly either one could still take Best Picture. So now we look to next week’s Director’s Guild Awards for a little clarity. The DGA have been a very reliable stat for the Best Picture Oscar (even moreso than Best Director) for a much longer time than the recent PGA matchups.

But if the DGA goes as I suspect it might, things could remain just as up in the air as they are now.

In terms of shear numbers, this year is dominated by two major epic films: The Revenant and Mad Max: Fury Road. With 12 and 10 nominations respectively, they are going head to head in every viable category, except the the former’s two acting nods. Both are serious threats. Well, for director anyway. They are both unlikely to win Best Picture because of a surprisingly important stat: Since the SAG awards have existed, no film has won the Oscar for BP without at least a SAG Ensemble nomination. That’s something neither of these epics has. In fact, The Big Short and Spotlight are the only movies this year with this qualification.

The closest we’ve come to breaking that is when Gravity tied for the PGA and won the DGA and the Oscar for Directing. But even that eventually lost Picture to it’s PGA co-champ 12 Years a Slave.

But while The Revenant and Mad Max are unlikely to win the big prize they are still major threats for directing and for DGA. Or at least one of them is. Unfortunately for The Revenant, that director’s last film, Birdman, just swept the entire awards season, including the Oscars last year. While there’s a lot of passion for his new film, it doesn’t have that kind of inevitability it would need for Alejandro G. Iñarritu to win two years in a row.

That leaves George Miller and Mad Max.

Mad Max Fury Road sniper

In recent years visual and technical marvels Gravity and Life of Pi have had success in directing awards despite not winning Best Picture. I believe George Miller is in this camp, and I believe he’s got enough precursor wins to prove it. That’s why I think Mad Max: Fury Road will win the DGA and eventually the Oscar for Best Director.

But if he does win the DGA, it will only confuse the Best Picture race even further. If the 3 biggest and most important precursors go to 3 different films, who has the edge?

Hard to say. But for now I’m going with that PGA stat and sticking with The Big Short.

Oscar 2015 – Complete Winners List

oscars-trophies

And here they are, the winners of the 87th Academy Awards. My predictions were decent this year – 19 correct out of 24. Not a lot of surprises, even in many of the tightest races. The biggest shocker was Big Hero 6 beating out How to Train Your Dragon 2 for Animated Feature, and that was bound to be a close race anyway. Still I was thrilled to see Whiplash get Editing and Sound.

The Oscars’ Real, True, ACTUAL Start Time

oscars2015-host

The 87th Academy Awards begin tonight, Sunday, February 22, 2015 at 8:30pm Eastern Time (7:30pm Central, 6:30pm Mountain, 5:30pm Pacific).

For years, every time the Oscars come around I search online for the start time, plan my party around that, and then get annoyed with an extra 30-90 minutes of Red Carpet coverage that I could care less about. The Oscars’ OFFICIAL WEBSITE, for instance, lists the start time at “7e/4p.”

Last year I decided to dig a little deeper and discovered that the real answer is a full HOUR AND A HALF LATER than advertised. My blog post to that effect was subsequently the single most viewed post in the history of this blog – by several orders of magnitude!

In a brazen attempt to capture lightening in a bottle twice, I have done my research again and have returned to tell you that, yes, the real, true, actual start time is indeed 90 minutes later than advertised. In fact, the LA Times has a complete breakdown of the entire day’s broadcasting events and times. (Note: their times are all Pacific, so if you live in Central or Eastern, etc. just do the math.)

So once again, if you want to avoid all the Red Carpet nonsense, the Oscars REALLY start at 8:30pm EST/5:30pm PST.

Enjoy the show!

Oscar Predictions 2015

Birdman1

The 87th Academy Awards presentation is tomorrow night: Sunday, February 22, 2015 at 8:30pm EST. Here, just in the nick of time, are The Screen Life’s official ranked predictions.

Several of these races are completely locked at this point. There should be no surprises when it comes to Supporting Actor, Lead AND Supporting Actress, Cinematography, and almost every craft category The Grand Budapest Hotel is eligible for.

On the other hand, many of the biggest races are an incredibly close toss-up between 2 or even 3 movies: Picture, Director, Actor, BOTH Screenplays, Editing, even VFX could all go a number of different ways. These rankings are intended to give you an idea of the closest challengers and dark horses.

While I’m probably bound to get a few of these wrong (I admit a bit of a bias toward Whiplash), I believe that sticking with these predictions are the best way to win your office Oscar pool.

Happy Oscaring!!!

Memedown – The Oscars (2014)

The Memedown is a compilation of viral content on a particular subject or event, saved and posted here for… uhh, posterity (or something). It is by no means exhaustive. I guarantee I’ll only ever find a fraction of what’s out there. Think of it as a recap, of sorts, as filtered by the internet.

Welcome to the first edition of what I expect to be a reoccurring, if not exactly regular, series. When something grabs our collective attention, the internet spits out memes and other viral jokes, games, articles, etc. like a factory. These memes are largely forgotten within weeks, if not days, but that’s where The Screen Life comes in.

Today’s Memedown… The Oscars (2014)!

What better place to begin than the original Twitter-breaking selfie…

The Oscar Selfie

…which, of course, was bound to get reinterpreted…

Source: unknown

John Travolta’s bizarre mangling of Idina Menzel’s name…

…has been a source of endless confusion…

The hilariously weird moment has inspired everything from a new YouTube pronunciation guide…

…to a Travolta name generator [click here to Travoltify your own name], to a tweet from “Adele Dazeem” herself…

Source: unknown

Elsewhere, the internet had some fun with Dallas Buyers Club‘s Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto…

Source: unknown

And someone noticed Leto’s striking resemblance to another celebrity, of sorts…

Source: unknown

There’s a whole series of memes taken from Benedict Cumberbatch’s photobomb of U2.

Don’t forget about Good Guy Harvey Weinstein…

Honestly this Branjelina bit is pretty awful, and not least because the joke’s premise is a decade old at this point.

Source: unknown

Finally, it seems the biggest source of consternation for the denizens of Internetland is the still-empty-handed Leonardo DiCaprio. (There’s a very real possibility that some of these have been recycled from years past.)

Oscar Post Partum – The Empty-Handed

prisoners

There we have it, folks. Another year of movie awards come and gone, culminating in last night’s Oscars.

In retrospect, after sleeping on it, the show itself wasn’t particularly all that exciting. In last night’s recap, I said the show wasn’t particularly memorable. But with the light of day I feel like that’s giving it too much credit.

As much as I love Ellen, most of her bits fell pretty flat. The montages on the theme of “Heroes” were uninteresting and instantly forgettable, while the Wizard of Oz tribute was completely pointless. And perhaps most egregious of all, there were absolutely zero surprises in the awards themselves. How did such a tight and unpredictable race end up with such… well, predictable… winners?

Maybe in such a close race, any winner will feel unsurprising. Except, no, the vast majority of these were pretty obvious weeks, if not months ago. Maybe the extended voting season (waiting an extra couple weeks for the Olympics) allowed everybody to settle on generally agreed-upon group of winners well before the ballots were turned in. That’s probably closer to the truth.

Either way it’s disappointing that such a close, exciting nail-biter of a race ended with so anticlimactically. And it’s unacceptable that in such an amazing year with such a wealth of extraordinary films to choose from, so few of those walked away with any hardware at all. Here’s a short list of films that didn’t win any Oscars this year…

All Is Lost
American Hustle
Blackfish
Blue Is the Warmest Color
The Butler
Captain Phillips
The Conjuring
Elysium
Ernest & Celestine
42
Francis Ha
Fruitvale Station
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Inside Llewyn Davis
Lone Survivor
Monsters University
Much Ado About Nothing
Mud
Nebraska
Out of the Furnace
Pacific Rim
Philomena
Prisoners
Rush
Side Effects
Spring Breakers
Star Trek Into Darkness
Stoker
Stories We Tell
This Is the End
Warm Bodies
The Way Way Back
The Wolf of Wall Street
The World’s End

All of those – and it’s by no means a complete list – received at least some amount of awards buzz throughout the year. While some are clearly better or worse than others, and individual tastes are clearly varied and subjective, every single one of those films represents teams of talented filmmakers whose are deserves recognition.

That’s not to say the Oscars are the be all and end all of recognizing art – we all know they’re not. But they are the most visible, the recognition that the general public is most aware of. Compare the list above to the list of films that did win Oscars

Gravity
12 Years a Slave
Dallas Buyers Club
Frozen
The Great Gatsby
Blue Jasmine
The Great Beauty
Her
20 Feet From Stardom

Fewer than 10 feature-length films came away with any hardware from 21 categories. The lion’s share of those trophies went to Gravity. And that’s fine. Gravity was an astounding, monumental work of art, and I don’t begrudge it a single one of its awards. But I do wish we could recognize the sheer volume and diversity of artistic vision on display in 2013 in a way that reaches the regular, non-cinephile public masses.

Many people like to repeat that film is a dying art, that movies are getting worse, and TV is taking over. There may be seeds of qualified truth in that refrain (especially if you compare movies like Grown-ups 2 to something like HBO’s True Detective). But in a loud and proud way, 2013 has declared that there remains no shortage art, genius, and life to be found in a movie theater.

Recognition of that fact is more important than any Oscar.

The Oscars Split: 12 Years a Slave wins Picture, Gravity wins Director

Gravity-12-years-a-slave (1)

The old rule that you can’t predict a split has been broken. By and large most awards-watchers predicted 12 Years a Slave to win Best Picture and Gravity‘s Alfonso Cuarón to take Director. Many of the most seasoned and widely respected pundits said that was unlikely and impossible to predict. I almost changed my predictions to Gravity all the way, but I stuck to my guns instead. And guess what… It happened!

Gravity, due to it’s technical prowess, walked away with 7 wins overall, more than any other film this year. 12 Years a Slave, despite taking the top prize, tied with Dallas Buyers Club for a distant second place in total wins. Both won 3. Frozen and The Great Gatsby each won 2, while Her and Blue Jasmine just took 1 apiece. The rest of the Best Picture nominees all went home empty-handed, including Captain Phillips, NebraskaPhilomena, The Wolf of Wall Street, and perhaps most surprisingly, American Hustle, which had initially tied Gravity for the most nominations (10). 

See the full list of winners here.

Overall, I went 19/24 in my predictions. Honestly, for such a tight year with so many amazing films, there weren’t a lot of surprising wins. What surprises we did get were mild ones that many saw coming.

The biggest shock (aside from American Hustle‘s big ol’ goose egg) was honestly Gravity’s Editing win, which wasn’t shocking at all. Many were predicting ACE winner Captain Phillips to take it, but the major technical marvel in the race could not be ignored. Her‘s Original Screenplay win over American Hustle lowered some pundits’ scores, just as Jennifer Lawrence’s Supporting Actress loss to Lupita Nyong’o lowered mine. But to be honest both races were neck-and-neck, and either had a great chance at winning.

The only other races I missed were in Foreign and two of the Short Films. I should have seen The Great Beauty coming (and honestly almost changed my prediction this morning). It’s won more precursors, but I was convinced by some pundits who thought it too abstract and esoteric to win. I was surprised yet thrilled to see the lovely Mr. Hublot win Animated Short over the more widely seen Get a Horse! And I was disappointed to see the technically proficient but narratively flat Helium win Live Action Short over one of the best films of the year (of any length) in Just Before Losing Everything.

The show itself was a pretty good one. While not necessarily all that memorable, it moved along at a good clip and Ellen Degeneres kept it light and enjoyable throughout. The producers made some good decisions that improved on previous years. The Original Song performances were great (although U2’s sound levels could’ve been better mixed). The introductions of the Best Picture nominees were made in groups of three, which certainly saved time. Eventually I’d like to see those intros scrapped altogether, but at least it’s a small step in the right direction.

Another small step in the right direction was the vague “Heroes” theme and it’s montages. While still wholly unnecessary, at least the montages were short and few, and they didn’t seem quite as random as similar ones in recent years. The Wizard of Oz tribute was pretty random, but I liked Pink’s performance.

Something I really liked was the choice to go from In Memoriam directly into Bette Midler’s song. In the past the segment has always been followed by a commercial break, leaving the somber mood to be jarred by obnoxious local TV ads. This felt much more smooth, and also allowed for a segue into more presentations before going to another break.

The standout speeches of the night were given Jared Leto (starting the night off perfectly), Kristin Anderson-Lopez and newly crowned EGOT Robert Lopez for Frozen‘s “Let It Go,” and Lupita Nyong’o. Matthew McConaughey’s speech was odd and a little off-kilter, but ended up rather endearingly quirky. And finally, BRAVO to the producers for not being to trigger happy about having the orchestra play winners offstage. The only ones that got played off were a couple of the short film winners (who were struggling with language barriers).

Ellen’s jokes were pretty on most of the night. She’s a great comedian, and her banter with the crowd was fun. I’m not sure how I felt about pointing out that many of the actors like Amy Adams never went to college. Either she’s embarrassing them or telling the general audience that that’s ok, but there’s no middle ground and since the joke fell flat, it felt pretty awkward and uncomfortable. But I loved the “possibility” bit – “Possibility #1: 12 Years a Slave wins Best Picture. Possibility #2: You’re all racists.” That’s how to be funny and pretend edgy, without actually being edgy. That’s what the Academy was looking for, and that’s what they got.

All in all, I had a fun night. What about you? How did you like the show? What did you love? What did you hate? What was meh? Let me know in the comments or on the Facebook page.
