Frances McDormand & Gary Oldman Big Winners of 2018 SAG Awards
We're full swing into the awards season, with the big ones being handed out before the Academy Awards countdown. The 24th annual SAG Awards honor the greatest performances from 2017, as chosen by other actors which means this is one of the most definitive lists of the best on-screen performances. Actors know their profession better than anyone and are very particular about good performances. This year, Martin McDonagh's Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri swept the entire awards, picking up four big wins in total - including the Best Ensemble. This is an impressive feat, but also a bit depressing, because I feel the awards should've been spread out a bit more to all of the other great films from 2017. Full list below.

Congrats to all of this year's SAG winners and the nominees! I am happy to see Gary Oldman win, he pretty much deserves all these awards - not only for his performance as Churchill, but for his entire career. As for the rest, I would've really liked to see Willem Dafoe win for Best Supporting Actor (it's one of his best film performances ever), and I would've preferred Margot Robbie or Sally Hawkins over Frances McDormand, but you know what, they're all talented and they'll all outstanding performances. This is not my favorite year for awards, because I'm not the biggest fan of Three Billboards, but it keeps on winning and there's nothing we can do. Seems to be the way it's playing out. Stay tuned for more awards updates leading to the Oscars.

Frances McDormand looks like she just got out of bed. At least TRY to look nice and dress up for an awards show for chrissakes! Maybe try washing your hair. You're not still playing the role you had for TBOEM.

As a WW2 buff I loved Darkest Hour but Oldman, well, he was just memorizing as the main man. I am so damn glad he is cleaning up in the awards dept. Still, I am worried about the Oscars because of the current pc climate. He should win but Daniel Kaluuya might just take it. He was really good in Get Out but it was not a breakthrough role whereas Oldman was freakin' awesome.
