Every week, I list all the upcoming (or recently released) movies, TV shows, albums, podcasts, etc. that I believe are worth checking out.

Bad Boys for Life (Theatrically Nationwide)
VHYes (Limited Theatrically) – I love outdated technology.

Sex Education Season 2 (January 17 on Netflix)
-26th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (January 19 on TBS and TNT)
Curb Your Enthusiasm Season 10 Premiere (January 19 on HBO)
Awkwafina is Nora From Queens Series Premiere (January 22 on Comedy Central)
Star Trek: Picard Series Premiere (January 23 on CBS All Access) – They made it so.

2015 Screen Actors Guild Nominations Reactions

Leave a comment

This has thus far been one of the most unpredictable awards seasons I can remember. The SAG nominees can help clarify the Oscar race, as the significant overlap between Academy and guild membership means that there is also significant overlap between who both groups nominate. This year, however, the SAG nominees are so surprising that that trend might not hold. Or maybe the Oscar nominees will be just as surprising.

Lead Actor

Bryan Cranston, Trumbo
Johnny Depp, Black Mass
Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant
Michael Fassbender, Steve Jobs
Eddie Redmayne, The Danish Girl

Leo, Eddie Redmayne, and Fassbender are still the favorites. Depp is still comfortably in the race. Cranston is a surprise, but not a shock; it’s hard to say where his Oscar chances stand now.
