‘American Hustle’ Wins Outstanding Performance By A Cast In A Motion Picture At 2014 SAG Awards
Ben Affleck named the nominees for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture, and seemed overjoyed to announce American Hustle as the eventual victor. Bradley Cooper took the stage along with costars Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner, and Jennifer Lawrence to accept the award from Ben and give a heartfelt speech about his director David O. Russell.
“He makes you feel like you’re a part of the family,” he said. “He’s the reason why all of us wanted to be actors when we were children.”
American Hustle was up against some pretty stiff competition at this year’s SAG Awards, and their win was a bit of an upset considering 12 Years A Slave‘s frontrunner status. The other nominees for outstanding performance by an ensemble in a motion picture were: 12 Years A Slave, August: Osage County, Dallas Buyers Club and Lee Daniels’ The Butler.
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Did the cast of American Hustle deserve to win?
