I don't know if it's because I'm sick and didn't get to watch this show with my usual wine. Or that it's on a Saturday, but I just wasn't feeling the excitement of the SAGs. Which is kind of weird because a lot of great things happened tonight. Let's get to it. My thoughts are in green, the winners are in blue.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role
Bryan Cranston - Trumbo
Johnny Depp - Black Mass
Leonardo DiCaprio - The Revenant
Michael Fassbender - Steve Jobs
Eddie Redmayne - The Danish Girl
I can't believe this is Leo's first win and his ninth nomination. What the fuck is that? It's about time.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role
Cate Blanchett - Carol
Brie Larson - Room
Helen Mirren - Woman in Gold
Saoirse Ronan - Brooklyn
Sarah Silverman - I Smile Back
Brie essentially has Oscar all locked up now. She gave a lovely speech.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role
Christian Bale - The Big Short
Idris Elba - Beasts of No Nation
Mark Rylance - Bridge of Spies
Michael Shannon - 99 Homes
Jacob Tremblay - Room
In a nice "fuck you" to the Academy Idris takes the award. This means Stallone probably has Oscar all locked up too. I wasn't crazy about Idris in Beasts, but I love him and he's gorgeous so I'm happy he won.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role
Rooney Mara - Carol
Rachel McAdams - Spotlight
Helen Mirren - Trumbo
Alicia Vikander- The Danish Girl
Kate Winslet- Steve Jobs
We wondered if Winslet's win at the Globes was about star power or if she was really in the race, and now I'm leaning towards the former. Alicia was great in The Danish Girl, even if it was no way a supporting performance. I suppose her massive ego paid off here.
Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture
Beasts of No Nation
The Big Short
Straight Outta Compton
SO happy Spotlight took this. They desperately needed a win. The Big Short probably still has the edge, but I'm happy Spotlight took this one because I think it's such a wonderful film.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series
Peter Dinklage - Game of Thrones
Jon Hamm - Mad Men
Bob Odenkirk - Better Call Saul
Kevin Spacey - House of Cards
Rami Malek - Mr. Robot
This surprised me. I really thought Hamm would win one last time, and I was personally rooting for Malek. Actors love them some Spacey.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series
Claire Danes - Homeland
Viola Davis - How To Get Away With Murder
Julianne Marguiles - The Good Wife
Maggie Smith - Downton Abbey
Robin Wright - House of Cards
Davis takes the win and gives another wonderful speech.
Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series
Game of Thrones
House of Cards
This was another one I thought would go to Mad Men at least. I still don't get Downton Abbey's wins. I get it has a lot of fans but it seems quite dull. Personally, I wish Game of Thrones would win this. Sure the writing was shit this season, but the acting is always spectacular.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series
Ty Burrell - Modern Family
Louis C.K. - Louis
William H. Macy - Shameless
Jim Parsons - Big Bang Theory
Jeffrey Tambor - Transparent
I really need to find a way to watch this show.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series
Uzo Aduba - Orange is the New Black
Edie Falco - Nurse Jackie
Ellie Kemper - Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Julia Louis Dreyfus - Veep
Amy Poehler - Parks & Recreation
Uzo wins everything. I should've known to pick her. I thought JLD would sneak in a win.
Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series
The Big Bang Theory
Key & Peele
Orange Is The New Black
I like OITNB. I like how diverse the cast is. I still don't think it's a comedy and was rooting for Veep or Key & Peele. Oh well, I'm happy for them.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie
Idris Elba - Luther
Ben Kingsley - Tut
Ray Liotta - Texas Rising
Bill Murray - A Very Murray Christmas
Mark Rylance - Wolf Hall
Idris wins again! He was so excited too.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie
Nicole Kidman - Grace of Monaco
Queen Latifah - Bessie
Christina Ricci - The Lizzie Borden Chronicles
Susan Sarandon - The Secret Life Of Marilyn Monroe
Kristen Wiig - The Spoils Before Dying
I didn't think anyone else really had a chance against Latifah and I was right.
