a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

Boston GlobeWell, the Awards pendulum seems to have swung back to “Spotlight.” This is after “The Revenant” won Best Picture at the Golden Globes last weekend. This week it’s “Spotlight” and next week? Next week we have the SAG awards which may totally light the way to the Oscars, but it won’t, however, be for Best Ensemble, the SAG awards version of Best Picture. Why am I so sure about that? Because “The Revenant” isn’t even nominated in that category.

Who else won? Well, the complete list is below and at http://www.awardsdaily.com.

Brie Larson triumphed AGAIN for her stellar turn in “Room.” She won the Golden Globes, too, for Best Actress Drama. The biggest head-scratching category right now seems to be Best Supporting Actress which went, surprisingly, to Kate Winslet for “Steve Jobs” and here it was Alicia Vikander for “The Danish Girl.” Leonardo Di Caprio AND Syl Stallone both won here, again, for “The Revenant” and “Creed” respectively. But in all cases it’s the SAG award given out by the Actors Union members themselves, many also members of the Academy,  that will tell the tale leading up to the Oscars. If any of the four above mentioned actors, Larson, Vikander, Stallone or DiCaprio, DON’T  repeat at the SAGS, dear readers, dear cineastes, we have a RACE!
