Look: if your movie is going to win the actress and supporting actress awards, as it will do at the Oscars (Sorry, Meryl, you’re going to miss out again), doesn’t it make sense that it is also going to win the best overall cast, especially with a cast that large?
However, I thought George Clooney was on a roll and was destined to pick up all the lead acting awards for his performance in The Descendants. I still think he is the favorite to win the Oscar. So the biggest — and really the only surprise of the night — came when SAG announced that Jean Dujardin was the winner for The Artist. I think that’s just another sign of how much this film has been embraced by the motion picture community and why it is a lock to win best picture at next month’s Oscar ceremonies.
