They pare down all the different possible candidates into a ballot that the membership votes on after nominations. The SAG Awards take place on January 27th. and pretty much indicate the direction of Academy voters since a lot of them are also in SAG. And the biggest SAG Award is Best Ensemble. That’s going to be a tight race. Silver Linings Playbook, Argo, Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Master, and Lincoln are certainly the strongest contenders.
