I didn't love them and I didn't hate them.
I could just leave it at that, but I know you want the juice.
I was prepared for 2 hours of endless man-hating, however I was pleasantly surprised. After how the Golden Globes used the show as a platform to protest sexual harassment in the workplace and gender inequality, I thought the rest of the award shows this season would follow suit. The SAGs handled those issues with heart and compassion - starting with host Kristen Bell's lighthearted opening.
As I did with the Golden Globes, I'm only going to focus on the film categories.

Pretty much everyone who won at the Globes won at the SAGs. James Franco decided to show up after skipping the Critics Choice Awards. Thankfully he didn't win Best Actor because that would have been awkward as f*ck (he's one of the many men in Hollywood who have been accused of sexual misconduct).
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri cleaned up and is looking like a top contender for many Oscars. I'm very much looking forward to the nominations being announced tomorrow morning. Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell and the film as a whole are surreal. It's a raw and relatable film that can easily give other Oscar top contender, The Shape of Water, a run for its money.
Here's a list of the winners for the film categories:
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Frances McDormand, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri"
Best Supporting Actor:
Sam Rockwell, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri"
Best Supporting Actress:
Allison Janney - "I, Tonya"
A special Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to the great Morgan Freeman. His acceptance speech left me scratching my head and laughing. Check it out below:
That's all for my recap and the last televised award show before the Oscars.
Who do you think will be nominated? What do you think of the winners so far?
