David O. Russell's "American Hustle" has won the Screen Actors Guild award for outstanding cast, setting up the con-artist comedy as the film to beat at the Academy Awards. The other nominees Saturday night at the ceremony at Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium were "12 Years a Slave," "Dallas Buyers Club," "August: Osage County" and "Lee Daniels' The Butler." Because actors making up the largest branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the SAG Awards are considered one of the most predictive tea leaves of the Oscars.
