You know what Viola Davis‘ Screen Actors Guild Award says, “I beat Meryl.” The divine Ms. Davis won the Best Actress trophy last night, over fellow acting heavyweights Michelle Williams, Tilda Swinton, Glenn Close and of course Meryl Fucking Streep. Viola’s co-star in The Help, Octavia Spencer, continued her victory lap over the course of awards season with another Best Supporting Actress win, while the 1960s civil rights drama beat out Oscar front-runner The Artist for the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award, the equivalent of Best Picture. The Artist‘s Jean Dujardin, however, triumphed over bona fide A-listers George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio to win the Best Actor prize and Captain Von Trapp himself, Best Supporting Actor winner Christopher Plummer, is all but guaranteed an Oscar for his role in The Beginners. The Oscars are still four weeks away and while this awards year has been a bit of a snooze, the race is shaping up to be anyone’s game. Full list of 2012 SAG Award winners after the jump!
