I love, love, LOVE the soundtrack.

That being said, I'm still pissed that Bruce Springsteen gets snubbed, and yet 2 of the 3 songs nominated are from Slumdog.

Much as I love both of those songs, that's some serious bullshit right there.

If someone who's seen Slumdog can explain to me how its ensemble was better than Milk's or Button's, I'd love to hear it.

What an insult to some truly talented individuals. Why would SAG cheapen themselves like that.

The worst kind of bandwagoning imaginable.

Next time these people go on strike I'll be cheering for the other side.

as acting goes, and as acting ensemble awards go, i agree that "Milk" was superior.

i thought the notable thing about the SAG awards was that Streep won for "Doubt" in B.A. and Kate won for B.S.A. for "The Reader." might be a moment of suspense in the ceremony.

I thought the notable thing about the SAG awards was how my recording ended in the middle of Sean Penn's acceptance speech, which was actually the only freaking thing I wanted to see.

So wait, what are all these actors going to protest in their acceptance speeches now that Bush is out of office?

I haven't seen Milk, but I think Slumdog had a very strong ensemble. I'd definitely rate it higher than Button, acting-ensemble-wise.

^Sean Penn protested against the media making up bullshit rumors about their being a feud between him and Mickey Rourke, even though they've been friends for years. So Sean is going after the media, now. And he also started choking up during his acceptance speech which I've never seen him do before.

It isn't, and they were wrong.

I think Mickey Rourke should be allowed to kick the shit out of anyone that is nominated in the same category as him.

Best Actor award, acceptance speech:

YouTube - Sean Penn Wins SAG Best Leading Actor 2009

I've never seen Sean get choked up either.

All he'd have to do is stare them down and that alone would kill them.

He's just a broken down piece-a meat! But yes, I agree.

Penn's acceptance speech was fantastic though. Thanks for posting that, Lila.
