Brokeback Mountain - NO SAG awards, HA HA

Reese Witherspoon as singer June Carter in "Walk the Line" and Philip Seymour Hoffman as author Truman Capote in "Capote" won lead-acting awards Sunday from the Screen Actors Guild, while the ensemble drama "Crash" pulled off an upset win over Brokeback Mountain" for the overall cast award.
"Brokeback Mountain" has been considered the best-picture front-runner at the Oscars, whose nominations come out Tuesday with awards presented March 5. Its loss to "Crash" could prove a speed-bump on the film's path toward becoming the first explicitly gay-themed movie to win a best picture award at the Oscars, but it has dominated earlier Hollywood honors, so it will likely continue to be considered the favorite.

Lots of respects to Screen Actor's Guild for avoiding this abomination for awards, I hope Oscars follow suit.
