The 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards air this Sunday night and while the Golden Globes are typically the boozy/fun ones (and the Oscars are the BIG ones) the SAG Awards are the ones that artists take heart.
This year the hysterical, beautiful and talented Kristen Bell is hosting the show, where the awards are given to actors from actors — in fact, the award is called The Actor.
All eyes will be on James Franco and Aziz Ansari. After allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced followed wins at the Globes, people are wondering if either of the nominated actors will even show up.
Here are The Blast’s predictions for who will bring home The Actor. (BTW our predictions were pretty spot on for The Globes.)
Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role
Judi Dench, “Victoria & Abdul”
Sally Hawkins, “The Shape of Water”
Frances McDormand, “Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri” – She already won a Globe and a Critics Choice Award, so it’s likely she will grab The Actor.

Timothee Chalamet, “Call Me by Your Name”
