SAG Awards Live Blog!

Tonight, the Screen Actors Guild hand out their awards for the best of 2015. Let's see how this shakes up the Oscar race. Here we go!

-I didn't do a predictions article for tonight, so let me run through them real quick.
              -Best Cast in a Motion Picture- The Big Short
              -Best Actor- Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant
              -Best Actress- Brie Larson, Room
              -Best Supporting Actor- Christian Bale, The Big Short
              -Best Supporting Actress- Alicia Vikander, The Danish Girl

-I love how the Screen Actors Guild just gets right to it. There's very little fluff in this show. It's very efficiently run. First award of the night handed to Uzo Aduba for Orange is the New Black.

-Male Actor in a Comedy Series is up next. I honestly have no clue about the TV awards most of the time.

-If I had to have a guess, Jeffrey Tambor wins this one.

-"Get up here, Dad!"- Bateman with the nice Arrested Development reference as Tambor comes up to accept his award for Transparent.

-Christian Bale and Steve Carell are on stage to discuss The Big Short, one of my favorite movies of the year.

-Best Comedy series is up next, with our two supporting winners from last year on stage to present.

-Orange is the New Black wins Best Comedy Ensemble.

-Jeremy Renner is here to present the award for Best Female Actor in a Supporting Role. This one is critical.

-Alicia Vikander wins Best Supporting Actress for The Danish Girl. One more step towards the Oscar. What a spectacular year for her.

-Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell and O'Shea Jackson Jr. are here to talk about Straight Outta Compton. Huge applause as they walked on stage.

-Still absurd that it didn't get a Best Picture nomination. I'm angry about that one, and will be for a long time.

-Best Supporting Actor is up next. This one doesn't really matter because Sylvester Stallone isn't nominated. I've got Bale here, but it could go in any direction.

-I would love it if Elba won here. Snubbed by the Oscars, deserves so much praise for an incredible performance.

-Idris Elba wins for Beasts of No Nation! And deservedly so, great performance in a phenomenal film.

-Somebody is on stage. I don't know who it is. I'm guessing he's an actor. Just a shot in the dark.

-He's still talking. Oh.

-Solid montage, but kinda unnecessary.

-Queen Latifah wins Best Actress in a Miniseries or TV movie for Bessie.

-Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams and Mark Ruffalo talk about Spotlight. It's bad news if they don't win tonight.

-Tremblay and Larson take the stage to present the award for Best Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries. More TV categories!

-Idris Elba wins Best Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries for Luther. Second award of the night.

-The stars of Trumbo come on stage to discuss the film. Haven't seen this one yet.

-Carol Burnett is about to receive her lifetime achievement.

-Great speech and a standing ovation for Carol Burnett.

-Next up is Best Actress in a TV drama series. We're close to the major movie awards.

-Viola Davis wins Best Actress for How to Get Away with Murder.

-Idris Elba and Abraham Attah present the final Best Cast nominee of the night, Beasts of No Nation.

-Best Actor in a Drama TV Series is up next. This one is a toss-up.

-Kevin Spacey wins Best Actor for House of Cards! Somewhat shocking upset over Jon Hamm.

-Funny speech from Kevin Spacey, one of the definite highlights of the night.

-The In Memoriam section is up next. Susan Sarandon is here to present.

-Excellent, tremendously sad memorial for several great actors. Loved the Nimoy and Rickman sign-offs.

-Keegan-Michael Key and Julia Louis-Dreyfuss are here to present the award for Best Ensemble in a Drama Series.

-Downton Abbey wins Best Cast. Shocked that it topped House of Cards and Mad Men.

-Eddie Redmayne to present the Best Actress award. Should be Larson. No question in my mind.

-Brie Larson wins for Room. On her way to an Oscar.

-DiCaprio will win the Best Actor award, but Best Cast is where things will get really interesting.

-Alright Leo. Let's get this over with.

-Leonardo DiCaprio continues his march to the Oscar with a win for The Revenant.

-I'm very excited to see what wins Best Cast. I can't wait. This is a pivotal moment in the Oscar season.

-Spotlight wins Best Ensemble in a Motion Picture. Great film and it really throws the whole awards season into total disarray.

-That's it for tonight! But look for more reaction soon.
