Screen Actors Guild Award Winners

The Screen Actors Guild handed out their annual awards the other night. The winners were all solid, with one glaring exception. As I mentioned in a previous rant, some fool decided it was ok to nominate Leonardo DiCaprio as best SUPPORTING actor for his role in The Departed… a role in which even the blindest of people know he was clearly the lead. So how can they compound their stupidity? By giving the award to Eddie Murphy over him.

Don’t get me wrong, Eddie was quite good in Dreamgirls… I’ll even go so far as to say that if SAG hadn’t of acted like morons and nominated Leo for SUPPORTING actor, then I wouldn’t have a problem with the idea of Eddie winning the award (he wouldn’t have been my pick to win… but he was good enough that I certainly wouldn’t have a “problem” with him getting it). But to even suggest that Eddie Murphy’s performance was better than the one Leo gave in The Departed is just dumb.

Who knows… maybe the people at SAG realized how stupid it was to nominate Leo in that category and decided to turn a blind eye to him being in there. If that’s the case… then I actually applaud the SAG voters for the move. Anyway, here’s your list of the SAG winners. Expect to see this list of winner duplicated EXACTLY for the Oscars.

Forest Whitaker, “The Last King of Scotland”

Helen Mirren, “The Queen”

Supporting actor:

Eddie Murphy, “Dreamgirls”
