So the Screen Actors Guild has had their say, and for the most part, they were in lock step with the beat the season has set so far.
All the expected actors followed up on their BFCA wins two days ago, with the only category of some dispute being supporting actress. Lupita Nyongo's win tonight over chief competition Jennifer Lawrence (who won just last year) seems to have effectively settled that question though.
American Hustle, just like Argo last year, managed to hustle away with the night's top prize of Best Ensemble without winning any individual acting honours. But if that were to happen at the Oscars, it would be only the second time ever that a film nominated in all four acting categories failed to win a single one of them. But its sights are on a bigger mark: Best Picture. The SAG Ensemble is a nifty feather in its cap, but tomorrow night's PGA Award will be what could truly seal the deal.
