The Screen Actors Guild Awards is a peer-group kudofest in which performers are honored by their industry. Since it began in 1994, it has become one of the best precursors for predicting the four acting categories at the Oscars. Indeed, all four of last year's SAG individual film winners -- Matthew McConaughey ("Dallas Buyers Club"), Cate Blanchett ("Blue Jasmine"), Jared Leto ("Dallas Buyers Club"), and Lupita Nyong'o ("12 Years a Slave") -- went on to repeat at the Academy Awards. -Break- It is never too early to dish all the film awards Join the red-hot debate in our fiery forums right now However, SAG is less reliable when predicting the eventual Best Picture champ at the Oscars.

Richard Attenborough, who was honored for his helming and production of the 1982 Oscar best picture “Gandhi” but was best known to American audiences for his role in Steven Spielberg’s “Jurassic Park” and its first sequel as park creator John Hammond, died on Sunday, his son tells BBC News. He was 90.
The stocky British filmmaker was awarded a life peerage by Queen Elizabeth II in 1993 for his stage work and for his efforts behind and in front of the camera to promote British cinema.
While Attenborough had been a prominent character actor in his native country since the early 1940s, he also achieved much as a producer, motion picture executive and cultural impresario. At various times he was chairman of the British Film Institute, Channel 4, Goldcrest Films, the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and Capital Radio and a director of the Young Vic and the British Film Institute. In the late ’70s, »
