Sandra Bullock and Jeff Bridges continued their winning streak by grabbing the best actress and best actor award while
was named the best picture at the 16th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
It was something of a deja vu evening on Saturday evening as most winners were repeats from the prior weekend's Golden Globe Awards, with both Bridges and Bullock again honored for their lead performances in Crazy Heart and The Blind Side, respectively.
Only the absence of Avatar in any of the categories kept the ceremony from completely forecasting how the Academy Awards might turn out in two months, MTV news online reported.
While James Cameron's blockbuster won the Golden Globe for Best Picture, the fact that it primarily features computer-generated characters made it unrecognized by the acting guild.
The SAG equivalent of a Best Picture prize, given to the best cast in a motion picture, went instead to Quentin Tarantino's WW II drama'Inglourious Basterds'.
Austrian actor Christoph Waltz, again won best supporting actor for that film. Mo'Nique, also followed up her recent Golden Globe win with a SAG Award for her supporting performance in 'Precious: Based on the Novel Push By Sapphire'.
As for the guild's television honors, Drew Barrymore ('Grey Gardens') followed her Golden Globe win with a SAG Award for best actress in a TV movie or miniseries.
