Of the 20 actors nominated for SAG Awards in 2011, 17 went on to receive Oscar nominations. And three of four SAG acting winners (Jean Dujardin, Christopher Plummer and Octavia Spencer) also won at the Academy Awards.
SAG nominees left out of the Oscar party were Leonardo DiCaprio and Armie Hammer of “J. Edgar” and Tilda Swinton of “We Need To Talk About Kevin.”
Four of the five ensembles nominated for SAGS received Oscar best picture nominations — the exception was “Bridesmaids.”
