Yesterday, the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild nominations were announced. Both The Help
scored best ensembles nominations (which is their top award) which could be an indicator of potential Oscar love because the actors (a percentage of the SAG members pick these nominees) are the largest voting branch in the Academy. The Help
actually scored the most nominations with four including both Octavia Spencer and Jessica Chastain in the supporting category.
Maybe being a movie about women won't hurt The Help, and the Bridesmaids nod along with the rising Melissa McCarthy makes me think it could potentially sneak in with a best picture nod because both men and women really love this movie. (As they should.)
