Re: SAG Awards 2014

I hope he has the time to go to these award shows, Aren't they filming Sherlock in January? And the Globes are in January, too.

Re: SAG Awards 2014

Some how they work it out.  But if it comes to a choice I'd rather he be filming Sherlock than walking the red carpet.
I suspect Ben might agree with me on this also.

Re: SAG Awards 2014

I know, SusiGo.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/sad.png

And I fear he won't have any luck at the Bafta`s either. I know it`s petty, but I somehow hope Michael Keaton wins the Bafta. Eddie Redmayne seems to be really nice and deserving of the award, but it would really look like a slap in the face for Benedict. Think about it: He doesn`t win for Hawking, he doesn`t win for Sherlock twice in a row, they don`t even nominate him for Parade`s End and then Eddie Redmayne wins....for playing Hawking.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/sad.png

Re: SAG Awards 2014

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure Benedict doesn't think about it like that.

Re: SAG Awards 2014

I`m sure you are right, SolarSystem. He probably is a pretty reasonable person, unlike me.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png
I should have written: To me that would feel as if his work isn`t really valued. I know that ultimately all of these awards don`t matter anyway.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: SAG Awards 2014

I can't judge ER performance because I haven't seen it yet but I do have an opinion bassed on following awards for many years. 

Eddie Redmayne has the "showier" role.  That's why he's winning so much.  Not saying it's not a great performance.  Just observing that actors tend to get rewarded for roles that involve playing some sort of handicap or that require a serious physical transforamtion.

Just a few examples from the Oscars:
Marliee Matlain for Children of a Lesser God - deaf actress
Linda Hunt - The Year of Living Dangerously - woman playing a male character
Robert DeNiro - Raging Bull - great weight gain and loss
Dustin Hoffman - Rainman -  autistic charater
Jared Leto - Dallas Buyers Club - man playing transexual prostitute.

The list is long.
Once again, not that these all weren't very deserving performances, but you do see a pattern?

Benedict and Eddie both gave amazing performances in their respective films but I do honestly think that the physical aspect of playing Hawking gives it just the slightest edge when it comes to awards.

Re: SAG Awards 2014

I agree, tonnaree. Usually the "I played a gay guy" card works http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/devious.png
 But this year he is beaten by a handicaped role or a guy who has his comeback. Bad timing I guess http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/wink.png

But honestly, I'm sure both Michael and Eddie would deserve the Oscar.

Re: SAG Awards 2014

tonnaree, I totally agree with you, I've been saying this for quite a while now.
I have seen "The Theory of Everything" and Eddie is really good in it. And not only when it comes to the physicalness of the role. There also is a very nice chemistry between him and Felicity Jones. The film as a whole however isn't really my cup of tea, for various reasons.
So. Eddie certainly deserves awards for his performance. So, I'm sure, does Michael Keaton, although I haven't seen "Birdman" yet. Keaton is celebrating a huge comeback with this role, so this also might make some members of the Academy vote for him. In my opinion Benedict is absolutely brilliant as Alan Turing - the 'problem' is that you have to look a little bit closer to realise how good he is and what he has achieved. His performance is not as showy as Eddie's or Michael's, it's more low-key and delicate. And although at the Oscar it's only actors and actresses who can vote in the Best Actor/Best Actress-category and they should know what to look for.. I'm not sure Benedict will win.
