Slumdog and SAG

With its SAG win for Best ensemble cast, it looks like Slumdog Millionaire is headed for a Best Picture win. If that many actors are overlooking the fact that, Irfan Kahn aside, the acting in Slumdog isn't really its strong point, then it must be an indication that they are looking for ways to honor the film.

I quite agree with your reasoning here, especially since the SAG ensemble was probably one award the film should NOT have won. The cast of DOUBT was top-rank, as were the thesps in MILK. SLUMDOG is sweeping the board, and few would at this point bet against it. Oddly, the 13 total nominations for BUTTON don't seem to be any kind of a factor.
