Congrats to all of this year's SAG winners and the nominees! Now that Brie Larson has won, can everyone please go watch Short Term 12? And now that Idris Elba has won, can everyone please go watch Beasts of No Nation? (Why not toss in Trumbo while you're at it.) Both of these films were so hard to get people to actually watch them, and this is proof they're worth seeing. All of the actors nominated this year are some of the best working today, from Bryan Cranston to Rooney Mara to Michael Shannon to Saoirse Ronan. It's also awesome to see Mad Max: Fury Road getting recognized for its stunt work, since the action work in that movie is phenomenal and it deserves recognition. Stay tuned for more awards leading up to the Oscars.
