Oh congrats to Halle! :)
I really like her - she is a great actress and seems splendid in interviews that I've seen her do.
Can anyone post who won the rest of the SAG's?

Right here Becca, congrats Halle:
Mar 11th, 2002, 07:25 AM
Yep, that is a HUGE win for Halle... :eek:
Add a black woman never having won Best Actress to Sissy already having an Oscar on her mantle...I think Halle has eked herself in front of Sissy. :)
Russell Crowe's votes came before the big BAFTA blow-up, so it will be tough to tell whether he will be affected by that in the Oscar voting...but I did notice that he received quite tepid applause tonight. :eek:
I think Ian McKellen has now established himself as the Best Supporting Actor favorite...he's a bigger name than his prime competition, Jim Broadbent, and he's in a better-liked movie, too.
I'm glad Helen Mirren won, but there is no way she'll beat Jennifer Connelly for the Oscar...lucky for Helen that Jenn was nominated for a LEADING SAG.
Finally, "Gosford Park" winning "best ensemble" (read: best overall acting) suddenly puts it as firm competition to Best Picture faves "A Beautiful Mind" and "Lord of the Rings"...
Remember. The majority of the Academy are ACTORS. Superstar actors (you are automatically offered membership after you receive an Oscar nomination). What they like holds a lot of pull. It's no coincidence that SAG leading winners have followed up with a win at the Oscars 11 out of 14 times.

"Russell Crowe's votes came before the big BAFTA blow-up"
What BAFTA blow up? :confused: What was that about?
Mar 11th, 2002, 07:32 AM
Oh, Mr. Weirdo went off on some head honcho of BAFTA or the BCC, because they cut out a poem (???) from his speech for the BBC broadcast. Apparently Russ flipped his wig at the poor guy. He apologized a couple days ago, but supposedly that was only after "Mind" director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer demanded that he do so, because it was affecting their Oscar chances, as well has his, him being the star of the flick and all.
He's a great actor, but...weird, weird, weird. His speech tonight was bizarre too...talking about everyone in the room being "storytellers" while neglecting to thank anyone who may have helped him with his performance, i.e. the writer, the director, or his co-stars.
Mar 11th, 2002, 07:36 AM
He is a tad eccentric, isn't he?
But a superb actor - if not for his quarks perhaps he wouldn't be such a great actor.
Mar 11th, 2002, 07:44 AM
So true. How many geniuses were also madmen? John Nash could never have been played by anyone more fitting.
He is a truly chameleonic actor. To go from "The Insider" to "Gladiator" to "A Beautiful Mind" is just staggering, and to carry all of those movies to such acclaim (in spite of "Gladiator"'s general, uh, crappiness ;)) is something of a miracle.
Having said that...yeah, he's a freak show. :D
Mar 11th, 2002, 11:01 AM
Well done Helen Mirren and Sir Ian McKellen
Mar 11th, 2002, 04:29 PM
I'm surprised because I saw Berry in X-Men and I can officially say that was the worst acting performance I have every seen. Bar none. Not ever Crossroads (the soap) can compete with that.
Mar 11th, 2002, 04:46 PM
With the way Halle Berry looks, who care how she act :eek:
Mar 11th, 2002, 07:08 PM
Yeah, vbn, but look what Berry had to work with in "X-Men"
I haven't seen "In the Bedroom" so I can't compare her to Spacek, but Halle was amazing in "Monster's Ball" and it was not an easy roll by any stretch.
Mar 11th, 2002, 11:15 PM
I saw all five of the best actress nominees, and I thought Halle did the best job. IMO after Halle, the order of the best actress for me would be
2. Judi Dench
I liked every single performance I saw, but I think Halle was the best.
