Inglourious Basterds Wins Big at the SAG Awards


If you were disappointed by the lack of recognition given to Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds at the Golden Globes last week, you’ll be happy to hear that the movie did get a little more love at the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards on Saturday. Although most of the movie-related awards were virtually identical to the Golden Globes (and a lot of the TV ones were the same too), the Basterds did take home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. You have to admit, it’s pretty hilarious to see Eli Roth up on stage accepting an award for acting!

The SAG Awards may be just another award show that pales in comparison to the Oscars, but when all of the same people keep winning, it certainly tips the scales in their favour. The Best Picture race, however, is still anyone’s guess. Are you pleased to see the Basterds get their due? Check out the full list of nominees and winners (winners are in bold) after the jump.

  • I’m surprised Avatar wasn’t nominated for anything, did it miss the cut-off or something?

  • It was pretty unexciting how similar the winners were with those of the Globes. Anyone else notice Sandra Bullock mouthing “fuck” when she won? I’m 90% sure that’s what she said.

    It’s great to see this film getting the recognition it deserves! It was my favorite film of the year up until Avatar came and wrecked my world with it’s awesomeness. That said I’m rooting for either Avatar or Inglorious basterds come Oscar time.
