Based on P.L. Travers' series of books, Mary Poppins follows the adventures of a magical nanny Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews) as she helps her wards Jane (Karen Dotrice) and Michael (Matthew Garber) and their parents George (David Tomlinson) and Winifred (Glynis Johns) learn how to be a happy family again.

The picture became clearer following the announcement of the SAG Award nominations: now, there are three or four top contenders in each category; these performers will probably — or rather, in a couple of cases, surely — be shortlisted for this year’s Academy Awards. (See also: "Oscar Predictions 2014 Best Actress: Meryl Streep Possibly to Break Another Record," "Oscar Predictions 2014 Best Actor: Robert Redford Possible Near-Record," and "Oscar Predictions 2014: Best Picture, Best Director.")
