Sag Awards 2011 Nominees - The SAG Awards 2011 cap off a big week. Most of the SAG Awards 2011 nominations went to actors that just got Oscar nominations five days ago. For those that didn't, this is their last chance to play spoiler for the favorites. As for the favorites, this is another opportunity to increase their already substantial leads in the Oscar derby. But the Best Picture race is not a big talking point tonight, since this ceremony is all about actors. However, the SAG Awards could offer a boost to the Best Picture leaders, or those still trying to catch up.
Tonight, the actors and actresses take the spotlight, as their peers get to choose their fate. The Screen Actors Guild is not only the primary union for actors, but they also hold one of the last pre-Oscar ceremonies of the season.
As such, the SAG Awards 2011 offer another chance for Colin Firth, Natalie Portman, Christian Bale and Melissa Leo to rack up honors. But the night won't end with a Best Picture competition, as the last trophy will go to the Best Ensemble Cast.
