Tonight’s ceremony is only the 28th for the SAG Awards, but in that time SAG has proven a key port in the Oscar storm in terms of seeing the Academy eventually come close to matching the acting choices of this guild, which has a massive 124,000 eligible voters — well beyond just actors but also television personalities in news and other jobs who also get to cast a ballot ever since the merger with AFTRA. That makes it all a little less predictable in terms of matching Oscar, as well as Emmy, but still the track record is impressive.
