SAG Award Winners 2012: Moneyball Comes Up Empty

The Screen Actor's Guild Awards ceremony took place on Sunday night and it was yet another awards show where Moneyball came up empty.

The full list of SAG award winners is like reading a train wreck, so it should probably come as no surprise that whoever you wanted to win, likely didn't. The awards are voted on by members of SAG to celebrate the past year of acting performances, so the true star of Moneyball -- its dazzling script -- was not in the running on Sunday.

Brad Pitt's portrayal of Billy Beane was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role. He lost out to Jean Dujardin of the contemporary silent film "The Artist," which is looking more and more likely to win the Academy Award for Best Picture.

In the category for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role, Jonah Hill once again lost out to Christopher Plummer for his role in "Beginners."

It's wonderful that Pitt and Hill continue to rack up nominations for their respective roles, because they were both terrific. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like their year.
