The 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be simulcast live coast to coast on TNT and TBS on Saturday, Jan. 30 at 5 p.m. PT / 8 p.m. ET. I'm busy watching all the movies so that I can vote accurately. It's an honor that I take very seriously as a long time member of SAG/AFTRA. Thus far I've watched these films and all of them gave me pause:
Beasts Of No Nation
The Big Short
The Danish Girl
Woman in Gold
Of the films I've seen, the only one that I thought I'd love and really didn't was The Revenant. Leonardo diCaprio is a fantastic actor and I'd love to see him win a Best Actor trophy as he is most deserving but this movie only showcased his grunting,grueling pain. The scenery was beautiful, the true story a daring feat, but....despite all the media hoopla, I didn't like the film at all.
These are on my weekend agenda. Even though I acted in Steve Jobs, I haven't seen it yet.
Bridge Of Spies
Straight Outta Compton
There are several TV programs nominated, many I’ve seen but these are on my “must see before the voting” list.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
A Very Murray Christmas
Grace of Monaco
The Lizzie Borden Chronicles
The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe
It's interesting to note that in the nominations this year, Netflix, HBO, Showtime, and AMC have more potential winners than other studios or networks.
WOW! This is a lot of media to digest while working full time. I may not be able to sleep until after my ballot has been cast.
What films and shows do you think deserve to be winners? I am interested to know what you liked and didn't like. More information about the SAG Awards. http://www.SagAwards.org.
Pass the Popcorn, please!
