In addition to being a handy odds-calculator for the Oscars, the
Screen Actors Guild awards have one advantage of the other dozen-odd awards being
passed around this season: a Best Ensemble award. Slumdog Millionaire
won in that category.

Sean Penn took the lead actor role away from some stiff
competition (admit it, Brad Pitt was pretty stiff in The Curious 1,500-hour
Long Case of Benjamin Button
). Also running: Richard Jenkins, the dark-horse candidate
from The Visitor

Meryl Streep’s killer nun in Doubt took the Best Actress

straight-out-of-rehab performance in Rachel Getting Married
, Melissa Leo’s rather

, Kate Winslet in Revolutionary Road and Angelina Jolie in Changeling.

To no one’s surprise, Heath Ledger’s zeitgeisty Joker won Best

Sally Field was really liked enough to get the lead actress for Brothers

, with Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin picking up best acting honors in
a TV comedy for 30 Rock
. 30 Rock also won best comedy ensemble. Paul Giamatti
and Laura Linney took Best Actor and Actress in a miniseries as Mr. and Mrs.
John Adams

Finally, James Earl Jones won a lifetime achievement award, as
long as he promises to do the Darth Vader voice every time he shows up.
