SAG Predictions: Best Actress

Will Win - Jennifer Lawrence "Silver Linings Playbook"

Could Win/Should Win - Jessica Chastain "Zero Dark Thirty"

Commentary - At the Oscars, the emotional power of Emmanuelle Riva and Quvenzhane Wallis make it a four way race. But here at the SAG Awards, it is between Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain. Lawrence is in the actor's favorite movie Silver Linings Playbook. But Chastain, while she doesn't have much emotional background to her character, dives into the dense script and has the most difficult job of any of the nominees, and nails it. That being said, voters vote with their heart not their minds, so expect Lawrence to take the gold.

  1. Yeah. I wish Chastain (she did the better job) would win though. Jennifer Lawrence did great, too, so I'm not too bothered.
