Loser: 'Django Unchained'
Quentin Tarantino's critically acclaimed thriller was the last contender to the party and paid the price with SAG voters. The film did screen for the guild, but it's unclear how many on the nominating committee had already submitted their votes by then. Still, this was surprising considering Leonardo DiCaprio was seen as a sure thing in the supporting actor category. "Django" will have to hope for more love from the HFPA, year-end top ten lists and other guild honors to fuel its expected Oscar run.
