Oscar tea-leaf reading doesn't get any better than at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
    
When the 20th annual SAG Awards get underway Saturday night in Los Angeles, the guild's choices will be heavily scrutinized for their predictive powers for the Academy Awards.
    
Actors make up the largest branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, so SAG members have perhaps more sway in determining Academy Award winners than any other group.
    
This year, the five nominees for SAG's top honor, outstanding performance by a movie cast, are: "12 Years a Slave," ''American Hustle," ''Dallas Buyers Club," ''August: Osage County" and "Lee Daniels' The Butler."
    
The nominees in SAG's top television category, drama series cast, include "Boardwalk Empire," ''Breaking Bad," ''Downton Abbey," ''Game of Thrones," ''Homeland."
