Manny P. here…
I’m currently reviewing this year’s crop of films nominated for the 2011 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards. Among the motion pictures I’ve seen (or plan on seeing) include: The King’s Speech, The Fighter, The Black Swan, True Grit, The Social Network, and Winter Bone. The SAG Nomination’s Committee has selected surprisingly wonderful cinema such as Rabbit Hole and Get Low. Here is a website link to the complete list of nominees:
As a voting member of SAG, I plan on watching every movie involved in the Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Stunt Ensemble, and Best Acting Ensemble categories. My choices will be made in about two weeks.
As I did last year, I’ll let you in on how I vote, once I have seen all involved motion pictures. If you scroll down my blog, you’ll see I sided with the majority of SAG voters in 2010 when they selected Sandra Bullock for The Blind Side, and Christoph Waltz for Inglourious Basterds.
A well-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented to Ernest Borgnine. This fine character actor won an Oscar in 1955 for his role in Marty. He was quite memorable in From Here to Eternity, Bad Day at Black Rock, Flight of the Phoenix, and The Poseidon Adventure.
The 2011 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards will be handed out on Sunday, January 30th.
Until next time> “never forget”
