Resurgent Hurt Locker, Usual Suspect Basterds Take Top Guild Awards

The Producers Guild of America dared Sunday to unsettle the Avatar juggernaut, reintroducing The Hurt Locker into the awards mix with its Best Picture prize. The Screen Actors Guild Awards, meanwhile, honored most of the same folks you've seen on the hardware circuit for the last month, with only Sandra Bullock's Best Actress trophy for The Blind Side offering any relative surprise amid fellow winners Jeff Bridges, Christoph Waltz and Mo'Nique. Even the TV side didn't offer much in the way of upsets, with perennial prize-hogs Mad Men and 30 Rock joining HBO's Grey Gardens among 2009's best. Click through for a quick bit of analysis and full lists of winners.

Hurt Locker desperately needed this industry boost to stay in the Oscar hunt. Well, maybe not "desperately," but certainly awards-season observers sensed the imperative for Kathryn Bigelow's masterpiece to win at least keep pace with Avatar, whose record-shattering box-office take since December wasn't enough Sunday to overtake the gritty, character-driven war drama among James Cameron's influential producer peers. And as far as the SAG Awards go, Glee's first season broke through the 30 Rock wall en route to its comedy/musical ensemble win. Many congrats to all as usual!
