The Help Is The Big Winner At The SAG Awards
The 2011 awards season is almost at an end. The Academy Awards are now less than a month away, set to air on February 26th, but there are still more guild awards that need to happen before then. Tonight, for example, was the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, which delivers awards to films based on their individual performances as well as their ensemble casts. Now the show has come to a close and the awards have been handed out. And the big winner is...
The Help. Though there are only five movie categories (the show also covers outstanding work in television), the Tate Taylor-directed film took home a grand total of three awards. While many anticipated wins in Best Ensemble and Best Supporting Actress, the big surprise of the evening was Viola Davis's turn beating out Meryl Streep's performance in The Iron Lady. The full list of nominees and winners is below, with the winners marked in bold.
Our very own Katey Rich will be around tomorrow morning for her analysis of these winners and losers and how they will change the awards race. To read more about it, check out other issues of her Oscar Eye column.
