By most indicators, it would seem that The Shape of Water is destined to win Best Picture -- it's got the most nominations by far, and it's the only film that was also nominated for Director, Screenplay and Film Editing -- *but* it was never even nominated for the SAG ensemble award, and in the 20+ years that SAG has been handing out that award, only one film has ever won Best Picture without that nomination (said film being 1995's Braveheart).

The winners will be announced March 4.
