'Birdman,' Eddie Redmayne & Julianne Moore Win 2015 SAG Awards

The Theory of Everything / SAG Award

While we're in the mountains covering the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, last night Hollywood had a big night with the ceremony for the 21st SAG Awards, honoring acting in film from 2014. After winning the Golden Globe, deserving Best Actor nominee Michael Keaton didn't end up taking home the prize for Leading Actor. Instead, that honor went to Eddie Redmayne for The Theory of Everything, which was a bit of an upset since Keaton was the favorite. But Birdman still ended up taking the SAG equivalent of Best Picture since it won the award for the entire ensemble cast. Anyway, see the rest of the winners below.

It'll be interesting to see if The Academy goes with Michael Keaton for Best Actor, but Eddie Redmayne has the potential to upset there too. I will say that Redmayne's performance is a little more impressive than Keaton's so I wouldn't really think it's an upset beyond just people expecting Keaton to win, but that's just me. Birdman is certainly gaining steam as a Best Picture nominee now, especially after the big win at the PGA Awards, but Boyhood is by no means out of the game. As for the rest of the SAG Awards, there wasn't really anything surprising other than the Leading Actor upset. Stay tuned for more leading up to the Oscars.

really pleased for Redmayne's continuing awards success. finally saw The Theory Of Everything last week, and if i see two better performances this year than Redmayne and Jones, i'll be pretty happy. it's not just because Redmayne is playing Oscar's favourite, someone with an afflication of some sort (or as Kate Winslet memorably said in Ricky Gervais' Extras, 'playing a mental'). their portrayal of the relationship between Hawking and his wife is beautifully portrayed, nuanced but fierce, strong but brittle. if this is Moore's year, Jones will win Oscars in the future.
