Pretender: "American Hustle" (Best Ensemble)
I'm going out on a bit of a limb here, but while it seemed the SAG audience I saw David O. Russell's film with delighted in much of it, mixed reactions have been floating out of others and it seems this one isn't elevating much higher than entertainment value. It has a killer cast of respected actors but it also has its back to the wall as screeners won't go out to guild members until next week. That's not always a death knell or anything; nominating committee members have a crack at seeing the film at screenings. But for those who didn't, the Dec. 9 voting deadline looms.
