The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) announced the winners of 20th annual Screen Actors Guild awards on January 18th, 2014 with giving away the top prize to AMERICAN HUSTLE co-written and directed by David O. Russell. This is as surprising as one could imagine because with 12 YEARS A SLAVE recently winning the Golden Globe for Best Picture and a shitload of critics awards, everyone was sure that the SAG award would also go to 12 YEARS A SLAVE. But, as AMERICAN HUSTLE also won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical) and it has such fine performances by great actors, then it’s kinda justified but it doesn’t increase its chance of winning the Oscar. Not yet. Let’s see who wins the Producers Guild Award because it would make things clear.

Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto keep winning the awards wherever they go. They both won Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards for Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor respectively. Plus, Leto has been a critic favorite throughout this season and it’s so nice to see him winning because he really gave excellent performance in DALLAS BUYERS CLUB.

BREAKING BAD won the top prize for TV category and Bryan Cranston won the Best Actor prize and he said, “what a way to go,” while accepting the awards. Really. What a way to go!

Last year, 4 top prize winners won the Oscars, i.e. Outstanding Performance by Cast, Male Actor, Female Actor and Female Actor in a Supporting Role. Let’s see if the same happens this year.
