Cue the alarms. Julie Roberts & Oprah Winfrey may be competing against each other for a SAG award!

I can’t even imagine being in the judges’ shoes; these two powerhouses are my female role models. It’s like trying to choose between salt and sugar, I don’t pick… I just have both.

If you’re on my side and absolutely idolize these ladies, breathing is allowed because it seems that Roberts and Winfrey are far from a catfight.

According to E! Online:

“‘We’ve spoken,’ Roberts told me last night at the L.A. premiere of August: Osage County. ‘We’re good. We’re fine.’”

“‘We’re going to get through this just fine,’ she added with a big laugh. ‘Honestly, not to speak for her—Oprah Winfrey, she’ so fabulous—but we’re both just thrilled. This is such a beautiful moment.'”

Roberts is up for the award as Supporting Female Actor for her work in “Osage County”, a film following three sisters (Julianne Nicholson and Juliette Lewis) as they journey back home to be with their extremely sick mother (Meryl Streep) after their father dies.

Although Roberts’ movie isn’t out yet (premieres Dec. 25), we can imagine her acting is solid.
And as for Winfrey, she told  E! Online:

“For someone who was trying not to embarrass myself, it is amazing… The best part is it is a jury of your peers. It’s people who do this for a living—don’t make me cry now!—It’s people who do this for a living saying, ‘We’re going to give you a vote. We think what you did deserves this.'”

Winfrey is nominated for her role in Lee Daniels’ “The Butler” where she plays the wife of a black White House butler who served several presidents. The movie is now playing in select theaters and her performance is stunning!

Votes are rolling in, whom would you choose? Tweet either #JuliaRoberts or #OprahWinfrey to @ATLCW.
