The Screen Actors Guild awards are a little different from the other shows because these are voted for by the actors in the guild. Although certain actors may get to vote in the other shows, the SAG awards show what their peers think of them. The SAGs are on January 18, 2014 but to get you started, here are our thoughts on who should win!

As 12 Years a Slave being our favourite film we once again went for Chiwetel Ejiofor for Leading Male Actor, but we instead picked American Hustle for Cast Performance due to the incredible compilation of actors found in AH. Now, despite our opinions Supporting Female Actor we chose Oprah because knowing who’s voting there’s a good chance she’ll get it.
