Screen Actors Guild 2010

The 16th Screen Actors Guild Awards are being held tomorrow at the gorgeous Shrine Auditorium, just one week after the Golden Globes. Many of the nominees are similar, and the question of the night will be if those same actors who walked away with the Golden Globe will also take home the SAG award.

A relatively new show, the SAG awards started in 1995 and awards performers within a cast or as an individual in a TV show or motion picture. This year, the 46th Life Achievement Recipient is none other than Golden Girl favorite, Betty White.

Jeff Bridges, Crazy Heart
George Clooney, Up In the Air
