We'll be reading countless articles about how Inglourious Basterds is now the dark horse Best Picture contender in the race after winning the top prize tonight, and how Crash won the SAG's Best Ensemble Award before taking the Oscar in 2005, and so on.

The unfortunate thing about all of this is the apparent death of Kathryn Bigelow's The Hurt Locker, which came up empty at the Globes and now comes up empty at the SAG's. Although I still hold out hope that James Cameron's Avatar can be upset come Oscar time, it simply doesn't appear to be in the cards this year. There are far better films than Cameron's $300 million+ brainchild, but none of them made more headlines or more money.
