Lee Daniels’ The Butler

Biggest winner of the lot is clearly “Lee Daniels’ The Butler.” The film was dormant for quite some time and got practically no notice from the critics awards last week, but three nominations here from the actors means that is very much still in the race.

Meanwhile, the best supporting actor category is practically impossible to call. Jared Leto has the edge right now, with Michael Fassbender close behind, but after that there are six or seven actors vying for three spots, and every single one of them could get in.

Not included in the SAG nominations were Tom Hanks for “Saving Mr. Banks,” Jonah Hill for “The Wolf of Wall Street” or anybody from “American Hustle.” None of them are out of the race now by any means, but Barkhad Abdi, Daniel Bruhl, and especially James Gandolfini get huge bumps from their noms.

Usually, you can expect about at least a 60% crossover for each category from the SAG nominees to the Oscars, and quite often closer to 80%. So with that in mind, Robert Redford (“All is Lost”), Hanks and others can’t be pushed aside just yet, but the road is less clear for them. It will be interesting to see how the other major awards shows differ, if at all, from the SAG nominations, because in this overpopulated year there is simply too much to consider to think these names will be locks anywhere else on the awards circuit.
