SAG 2007 {Predictions}

With SAG early this year it's going to be interesting. Will their nominations have more of an impact on the Academy's picks, or will the usual SAG role of dashing the dreams of those snubbed at the Globes mean we face a lengthy month of knowing pretty much what they'll pick? If it's the latter I vote they move it back next year.

Quick explanation of my picks
