Glenn Close, Sandra Oh, Rami Malek, Bohemian Rhapsody, American Crime Story, and Black Panther; these are all the names we are hearing together for the fifth time in the past three months. It is not like that the aforementioned names aren’t deserving winners. But, they certainly have tailored an awkwardly humdrum pattern. Whenever an awards show commences, we know that a list of familiar names will be read out in the nominations. Subsequently, a very anticipated winner would ascend the stage to deliver a drab, clockwork speech. When the Golden Globes 2019 announced their winners back in January, there was a lot of jigger-jagger around the exclusivity of the honorees. The distinctiveness; however, faded away soon when The Critics’ Choice Awards 2019 called upon congruent names to accept their accolades, The Oscars too, bloated their nominations list with the same candidates. And now the SAG 2019 Awards have recapped homogeneous prizemen.
Glenn Close Conquers Stage At The SAG Awards 2019 Too!
After his victory at the Golden Globes 2019, and The AACTA Awards, Rami Malek has scored another best actor accolade. Although the Critics chose Christian Bale over Malek as their winner, the Screen Actors Guild Awards again announced Malek as the Best Actor. The SAG Awards continued Glenn Close’s victory streak by pronouncing her as the Best Actress. Close had won at the Globes, The Critics Choice Awards 2019 and is also a potential Academy winner. The SAG Awards 2019 have established Glenn Close and Rami Malek as the safest bests for the Oscars 2019. Recently, with sexual abuse allegations breaking out against Bohemian Rhapsody director Bryan Singer, it was speculative that days of triumph were over for Malek. But this victory has now safely rebuked all such rumors.
Black Panther VS. Roma
The SAG Awards; however, haven’t slimmed Roma‘s odds of becoming the Academy’s first ever foreign language best picture. But they have evidently boosted the odds for Black Panther. If either of Black Panther or Roma takes the trophy home at the 91st Annual Academy Awards, it would be a major breakthrough for Hollywood.
SAG Awards 2019 Push Mahershala Ali As The Front-runner Of The Oscars 2019 Supporting Actor Race
In the Oscars’ 2019 race for the best supporting performances, the victory of Mahershala Ali is almost inevitable. The SAG Awards 2019 and the Critics Choice Awards 2019 have both honored him. And The Oscars have a tendency to not be much different when giving out their scrolls. The SAG Awards recognized Emily Blunt as their best supporting actress. But since the hostless Oscars have snubbed the actress from their nominations all together, it is fanciful that the honor will land in the hands of Academy favorite Regina King.
