The SAG Awards distinguish Orange Is the New Black
(Blogmensgo, gay blog January 28, 2015) already award-winning, series Orange Is the New Black restarts Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards with two awards on January 25, 2015. The Imitation Game , the biopic about Alan Turing, sprung empty-handed despite three nominations.
Uzo Aduba is sacred best performer in the Comedy Series for her portrayal of Susan Warren (aka Crazy Eyes) in Orange Is the New Black . "I got this role on the day I left the profession" said Uzo Aduba.
The Crazy Eyes performer was doubly honored, since Orange Is the New Black wins the trophy for the best overall performance in a comedy series. Among the forty or so rewarded performers including trans Laverne Cox and lesbian actresses Lea DeLaria.
The ranking also distinguishes a tireless advocate of community and gay marriage in the person of Julianne Moore, sacred best actress for her portrayal of a woman struggling with Alzheimer's disease in Still Alice .
Julianne Moore is also nominated in the same category at the Oscars in 2015.
The Imitation Game - the biopic dedicated to gay British mathematician genius Alan Turing - was left empty-handed as he candidate for the best overall performance in a feature film, best actor (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Best Supporting Actress ( Keira Knightley).
Cumberbatch underperformed the interpretation of another biopic, Eddie Redmayne for his role in Stephen Hawking The Theory of Everything. The two men vying for the Oscar for best actor.
Keira Knightley as she run for an Oscar, and again in the category of Best Supporting Actress. But it's Patricia Arquette who won the bid for SAG Awards in the same category for his performance in Boyhood .
Birdman and Boyhood are advertised as the favorites in the next Oscars, where The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything stand out as outsiders. Appointment is made for "revenge" for the Oscars, February 22, 2015.
Comment. The list of nominees and especially the SAG Awards winners is often considered a leading indicator of the Oscar awards. SAG Awards voters to represent about 20% of the electoral college at the Oscars.
Hopefully this is not a bad sign sent to The Imitation Game , which will run for eight Oscars in a month.
