SAG Awards 2013: Argo Takes it and Day-Lewis now Oscar Frontrunner

“Argo” took home a single prize at the 19th Screen Actors Guild Awards Sunday night, but it was the one that mattered most. Winning the trophy for performance by a cast in a motion picture, Ben Affleck’s CIA drama solidified its status as the front-runner in an Oscar race that had been muddled for weeks. Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” nabbed two of the top acting prizes: Daniel Day-Lewis was named lead actor for his performance as the 16th president, while Tommy Lee Jones was named actor in a supporting role for his portrayal of Rep. Thaddeus Stevens.

Clearly the main story was Argo as in this award show it was the actors themselves that found the movie and its director worthy of praise.   Personally I was annoyed that Anne Hathaway won simply because I just think she won because her hair is short and she now weighs 65 lbs.   Pretty cool to see Jennifer Lawrence win at the age of 22.

Other than that I kind of fell asleep at yet another night of the bigs of the big celebrating the fact that they’re big.  Yawn.
