SAG Awards 2016: Nominee Predictions

The nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards will be announced on Wednesday morning. This year is pretty tough to predict on the film side. Most of the main contenders barely made screenings available for some films (Joy, The Hateful Eight, The Revenant) before the ballots were due. That could work for or against them. The films will be recent in voters minds, but will enough of them have seen the films and will they be able to topple films that have been out longer and made a lasting impressions? It seems like it could go either way.
