Even though SAG is still considering an industry-wide strike, the awards must go on. There were few upsets. Meryl Streep won best motion picture actress for her role in Doubt, and surprise, surprise, Heath Ledger wins another award for his role as Joker.
Surprisingly enough, The Case of Benjamin Button seems to be snubbed in the SAG awards. Although the film has 13 nominations for the Oscars, the film went home empty-handed at SAG. Maybe its luck will change in February. However, I think most indie lovers are pulling for Slumdog Millionaire. We sure love those "rags to riches" stories.
The rest of the winners are here.
