SAG Awards Analysis: Michelle Yeoh and Jamie Lee Curtis Sweep 'Everything' – Will the Oscars Follow?

not all 64,64 Approximately members of the Screen Actors Guild SAG-AFTRA are also members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, but the vast majority1, 64 American Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Academy voting actors are members of SAG-AFTRA. That being the case, Sunday night’s SAG Awards bodes well for Oscar night for Everything Everywhere All at Once , which already looks like a daunting Oscar frontrunner after picking up top awards from bodies like the Critics’ Choice Society, Directors Guild of America and Producers Guild of America.

In fact, at the SAG Awards, four of the five film awards were given by members Earned Everything Everywhere cast member: not just the two who were seen as the dunk of the night — Best Ensemble and Best Supporting Actor Ke Huy Quan (which makes him the first Asian actor to win a SAG award for a solo film performance, not an ensemble) — and two that aren’t : Best Actress Michelle Yeoh , defeating

Cate Blanchett of Tár into a close match and for Jamie Lee Curtis won Best Supporting Actress, presumptive favorite Angela Bassett of Black Panther: Wakanda was disappointed Forever (winner of a Critics’ Choice Award and a Golden Globe, voted for by journalists’ organization sec).

Last year, all four individual SAG Award winners were at the Oscars again Winner, and winner of the Best Ensemble SAG Award — which isn’t explicitly a “best picture” honor, but is often seen as one — went on to win Best Picture. But there is usually at least one difference between the winners. While the SAG Awards and the Oscars are indeed different, it must be admitted that it is usually SAG-AFTRA, a much more diverse group , chose a person of color, and then had members of the academy choose others.

Recent examples include the SAG Awards will Chadwick Boseman

for Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom but Oscar will Anthony Hopkins as father, The SAG award will go to Viola Davis for Ma Rainey’s black ass But the Oscar goes to Frances McDormand For Nomadland, the SAG award will go Denzel Washington getsFences but Oscar will get Casey Affleck Manchester by the Sea , the SAG award will go to Idris Elba No Beasts of Country But Oscar Goes Mark Rylance ‘s Bridge of Spies and SAG Award will go to Viola Davis for The Help but Oscar will be Meryl Streep for Iron Lady .

Given this history, it may be premature to assume Yeoh will repeat himself at the Oscars, and it may be more important that Curtis succeeds in overtaking Bassett (not to mention Curtis himself co-star, Stephanie Hsu).

Curtis at the show’s opening Showtime — the first major awards show ever to be broadcast live, this year on Netflix’s YouTube channel and next year on the anchor’s own platform — as the cameras film her “…I’m an actor” story , won warm applause before opening his mouth.

No rep, Best Actor, of course it’s worth noting that veteran Frazier held back Elvis Breakout Austin Butler , it seems like a close race between these two Oscars. Butler once beat Fraser to win the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Drama, but Fraser beat Butler to win the Critics’ Choice Award and now the Screen Actors Guild Award. To me, this category is still up for grabs, as the Academy clearly accepts Elvis (eight nominations, including Best Picture) far more than The Whale (Three nominations, not including Best Picture).

In their acceptance speeches, all winners offered key “talking points” they wished to have at the Academy Members Mind The final round of Oscar voting begins on Wednesday. Fraser reminds people that he’s only recently returned from the wilderness (“Trust me, if you stay there, you’ll get where you want to be”) and mentions that he was in The Whale as “a character in my life” (read: this might be the best shot I’ll ever have). Yeoh, who will be the first actress of Asian descent to win an Academy Award for Best Actress, pointed to the historic nature of her candidacy (“It’s not just for me, it’s for every little girl who looks like me.. …thank you for giving me a seat”), as did Jeon, who also reminded people of his beautiful return to showbiz after a two-decade absence (“to all who are watching at home, struggling and trying” ) waiting to be seen, keep going because one day the spotlight will find you”). Curtis captivated the crowd by gazing at the elephant in the room after the standing ovation for her win died down : “I know you look at me and think, ‘Well, baby, that’s why she’s there,’ and I totally get it. But the fact that I’m 64 years old is awesome. ”
