Recap of the 2010 SAG Awards

16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Press Room


The 2010 Screen Actors Guild Awards premiered tonight, and while Inglourious Basterds ended up being the most successful film, the biggest story of the evening for me was Sandra Bullock's Best Actress win. It's not that it surprised me a great deal -- especially after her win at the Golden Globes -- but rather it confirmed for me her status as the current Oscar front-runner. It took me quite a while to buy the buzz surrounding her performance, but her likeability, her momentum, and her delightful speech make her seem like the perfect Oscar package at this point.


The previously-mentioned Inglourious Basterds won both the Best Ensemble Award and Best Supporting Actor for Christoph Waltz. Mo'Nique took home some more gold for her stunning turn in Precious, and Jeff Bridges received another standing ovation for his career-defining performance in Crazy Heart. These three performers have already cemented their status as Oscar locks, and these additional victories only makes that more true.


Other than that, there's really not much more to add. Below is the complete list of nominees and winners for the 2010 SAG Awards.
