Last night's 15th annual Screen Actors Guild awards confirmed what everyone suspected: Sean Penn, Heath Ledger and Kate Winslet are practically locks to win in their respective categories when this year's Oscars are handed out Feb. 22. Slumdog Millionaire's win in the Best Ensemble category also translates into a likely victory in the Best Picture competition.
The only category that remains too close to call is Best Supporting Actress since last night's winner in that category (Winslet) is in the running for the Best Actress Oscar. Right now, I'm leaning towards Vicky Cristina Barcelona's Penelope Cruz, although Viola Davis makes an indelible impression in Doubt with only one scene, and Academy members obviously loved the movie, considering how many nominations it received.
So I don't know what to think, other than it's time for another Oscar poll!
