The odds of Cate Blanchett winning her second Oscar look even stronger after she collected the Screen Actors Guild award on Sunday for best lead actress in Blue Jasmine.

Similarly Matthew McConaughey.s hopes of taking the best lead actor prize have improved after SAG recognised his performance in Dallas Buyers Club.

The SAG awards for Jared Leto as best supporting actor for Dallas Buyers Club and for Lupita Nyong.o as supporting actress in 12 Years A Slave won.t have dimmed either.s chance of winning gold.

Meanwhile the outstanding cast award for American Hustle is viewed by some pundits as a harbinger of that film.s prospects of taking the best picture gong, as happened last year with Argo.
