OSCAR WATCH: SAG Nominations

And so it begins. The SAG Awards were announced this morning and as expected, 12 Years A Slave reaped the most nominations. There were some minor surprises however, as August: Osage County, The Butler and Dallas Buyers Club received a much-needed boost in their Oscar campaigns. Likewise there were some surprising snubs, especially Robert Redford missing Best Actor (very curious considering the film received a Best Stunt Ensemble nomination). It's incredibly difficult to win the Oscar without a SAG nod, so he's going to need some major help to keep in his spot in this competitive category. There's not much else to say about this set of nominees, so let's just take a look:
