It's a big week for awards season: On Wednesday, the Screen Actors Guild unveiled the nominees for its annual awards, and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is set to announce the Golden Globes shortlist the following morning. In a year with few clear front-runners, these awards will crystallize the Oscar derby that began in earnest around Labor Day and has grown increasingly murky ever since.  Or so one would think. Instead, the SAG Awards threw us even more curveballs.
