SAG Awards point toward an intriguing Oscars?

Awards season is well and truly here in Hollywoodland.

But with the announcement today of the annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, it looks like the Oscars could be anyone's guess.

The Artist's been the number one prediction for an Oscar success - what with 10 nominations; but it looks like The Help's staging a resurgence of sorts. But it looks like Jean Dujardin's quest for Oscar is a little more cemented after another win - as is Christopher Plummer, who won the Globe for Beginners and now receives a SAG nod too.
