No Real Surprises at SAG Awards

Watching the Screen Actors Guild Awards tonight was like watching a repeat of this year's Golden Globe Awards. Same nominees. Same winners. About the only thing different was the absence of The Hangover, which inexplicably did well at the Globes.

There were a few standout moments, though, especially Betty White's acceptance speech for her Life Achievement Award (and George Clooney's response to one of her comments).

After ignoring awards season for many years, I find myself paying closer attention this time around. Not much has changed, though. While there will always be the odd exception, the speeches still sound like laundry lists. The "losers" still grit their teeth and applaud.

And we still know who's going to win before the seal is broken.
