February 8, 2009 |  2:27 pm

If "Slumdog Millionaire" wins the Oscar for best picture, it would be the third film to do so after sweeping the top prizes from the four leading showbiz guilds: producers, actors (ensemble award), directors, and writers.

Since SAG introduced the ensemble award at their second kudos in 1995, only one film had swept these four precursors before "No Country for Old Men" pulled off the feat last year. Which of the four films below was the first to do do? See the answer HERE.


ANSWER: "American Beauty" swept the top PGA, DGA, WGA and SAG awards for 1999.
