Experts predict who'll win the Screen Actors Guild Awards

January 23, 2009 |  9:44 pm

On Sunday night the Screen Actors Guild will bestow awards that often foretell the Oscars' winners. This year they may have extraordinary impact since the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences will mail out final Oscar ballots next Wednesday — just three days after SAG winners get a chance to put on a truly winning performance at the podium.

To predict the SAG Awards results, we've pooled the views of top pundits: Brad Brevet (RopeOfSilicon.com), Edward Douglas (Comingsoon.net), Greg Ellwood (HitFix.com), Scott Feinberg (Feinberg Files, The Envelope), Marshall Fine (Star magazine, HollywoodAndFine.com), Pete Hammond (Notes on a Season, The Envelope), Elena Howe (The Envelope), Peter Howell (Toronto Star), Dave Karger (Entertainment Weekly), Screen_actors_guild_sag_awards_os_2 Kevin Lewin (World Entertainment News Network), Michael Musto (Village Voice), Bob Tourtellotte (Reuters), Peter Travers (Rolling Stone), T.L. Stanley (Gold Rush, Hollywood Reporter), Kris Tapley (InContention.com), Jeffrey Wells (Hollywood-Elsewhere.com), Susan Wloszczyna (USA Today) and me.

See which celebs will be presenting the trophies at the SAG Awards. Also, check out which film these pundits predict will win best picture from the Producers Guild of America.

Let's hope that SAG will recognize Meryl Streep. She deserves the award not only for "Doubt" but for the excellence of all her work in film. She elevates all members of the guild .. and represents what the guild hopefully stands for. I have noticed Tom O'Nell that you are fair in your treatment of the "actor". For respecting and recognizing excellence, I thank you. I think SAG should recognize, on occasion, individuals like you who help advance the art/craft of film performance.
