My Top SAG Shockers of 2012

It was a big night of surprises at the SAGs and about 75% of my picks were wrong. The biggest shock came with Viola Davis’s steal of Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama for The Help,  which was basically stolen out from underneath Streep’s Vivienne Westwood hoop skirt. Other notable surprises of the evening include 30 Rock’s Alec Baldwin’s win for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series, Jessica Lange’s win for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series (move over, Margulies), and Paul Giamatti’s win for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for his work in Too Big To Fail.

Unsurprisingly, The Help took home Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, while Jean Dujardin for The Artist and Christopher Plummer for Beginners took home the male acting nods, with Octavia Spencer taking home Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Motion Picture.

In tv land, Modern Family of course is king, taking home Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Comedy Series, while Boardwalk Empire took home Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Drama Series. BE also secured Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series, thanks to Steve Buscemi.
