SAG Awards are tonight! Will Meryl win again? will have a much better idea of Meryl Streep’s Oscar chances for The Iron Lady after tonight’s Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Her main competition appears to be Viola Davis from The Help. While Meryl won the Golden Globe two weeks ago, Viola won the Critics Choice Award a few night’s earlier.

I happened to be stationed backstage at the SAG Awards three years ago when Meryl won for Doubt and I have never seen her so happy after a win. She probably thought Kate Winslet would win for Revolutionary Road as she did at the Globes.

Winslet had won earlier that evening in the supporting category for The Reader, a role that she was nominated in the best actress category for at the Oscars and won.

Anyway, if Viola does win tonight, Meryl has only herself to blame as you will see in this 2009 SAG speech. She had appeared in Doubt with Davis and said to the industry during the speech: “Someone give her a movie!”

Someone did and now Meryl has yet another rival.

    I think Viola is going to win the SAG and the Oscar. Enough of Meryl’s characterizations already!

  2. She was robbed, ‘The Help’ winning it seems is Hollywood’s way to show its ‘diversity’ with a movie that is about as accurate as snow falling in Las Vegas in July.
