SAG AWARDS 2012 - WINNERS

SURPRISE SURPRISE
Perhaps the big surprise in the Screen Actors Guild awards is that neither hot favourites Meryl Streep nor Michelle Williams won the big female gong, but Viola Davis from The Help. Likewise in the supporting category, the actors preferred Octavia Spencer from The Help, leaving the other four Berenice Bejo (The Artist), Jessica Chastain, (The Help), Melissa McCarthy (Bridesmaids) and Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs) empty handed – and us surprised. But not critical.


The men’s awards were also unexpected: Jean Dujardin (The Artist) instead of George Clooney (The Decsendants) in the lead and Christopher Plummer (Beginners) instead of Kenneth Branagh (My Week With Marilyn) for supporting.
