‘Three Billboards’ Wins Big at SAG Awards

As the last major awards given before the Oscars, The Screen Actors Guild awards give us a good idea of what to expect in this year’s Oscars ceremonies. Not only have front runners been battling it out since the season began last December, but SAG and the Academy share a good number of members in common. While not exactly a 1:1 comparison, the SAG Awards can give us some insight into how the Academy is leaning.

With that in mind, it’s looking good for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Martin McDonagh’s revenge caper took home three of the biggest awards last night, including Best Ensemble, Best Actress, and Best Actor. McDonagh’s film has emerged as a surprise favorite this season, garnering acclaim and awards from just about every major and non-major critical and guild award ceremony.

That speaks highly of its odds for this year’s Academy Awards. Still, not everyone in SAG is in the Academy, and that can skew the odds a bit. Many SAG members are television actors, whose voices don’t get factored into the Academy voting.

Television’s big winners at last night’s SAG awards included NBC’s This is Us while HBO standouts Big Little Lies and Veep also took home big awards.
