I think Kristen Wiig has better chances than Julia Roberts(or one of Carnage ladies).I would replace Redgrave with Berenice Bejo.Otherwise we agree on nominees.Unfortunately,i don't think Jessica Chastain will win.

I just saw the SAG noms, and wow, did they give us some very big surprises.

Demian Bichir? Tilda Swinton? Armie Hammer? Jonah Hill? Nick Nolte? Jessica Chastain? Melissa McCarthy?

All of these have their respective amount of buzz, but whoever thought they would actually get a SAG nom?

Golly, the race just got more tense.
