17th Screen Actors Guild Awards Winners

The annual SAG Awards are back this time of the year with the nominations and I'm really investing my focus of attention on this because I've always held high regards for quality acting and the recognition that SAG awards these talents. The cast is akin to a vessel of a film, it is through the medium of these great actors that the film's exact emotions and sentiments are relayed to the silver screen in the eyes of the audience.

Keeping up to pretty much everyone's expectations, the race continues on in full glory as the respective actors march on in the current award season campaign with confidence. It was nice to see a standing ovation for Christian Bale upon announcing his win. Melissa Leo from the same film also went on to bag the female equivalent of Bale's award, placing "The Fighter" in a strong position with double supporting cast performance victories.

For the leading actors, Colin Firth and Natalie Portman didn't disappoint as top favourites and their win further gaps them close to the upcoming Oscars.

It was however, interesting to see "The King's Speech" taking the outstanding cast ensemble award as it probably means that Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter aren't that far away from award glory grasp themselves.
