Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock will step back into the ring Saturday night to duke it out for best actress at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
The stars of Julie & Julia and The Blind Side have each garnered praise and award nods this season. They made headlines earlier this month when they tied for the top actress honor at the Critics Choice Movie Awards and ended their mock rivalry with a steamy kiss.
"I'm very monogamous. It's just Meryl and I. If I was gonna go the lady route, I chose the best, and I stick with the best. I don't slum it," Bullock told E! when asked if she plans on kissing anyone again tonight.
Before the Jan. 18 Golden Globes, Bullock deadpanned in an interview with PBS' Tavis Smiley that "Meryl's gonna win, and I'm gonna take her down. When she walks up there, you're gonna see my heel come off and I'm gonna be like – whoo! This heel is gonna take Meryl Streep down."
In the end, both Bullock and Streep won at the Golden Globe Awards, which has categories for both comedies and dramas.
Their other competitors for the SAG trophy include Helen Mirren for The Last Station, Carey Mulligan for An Education and Gabourey Sidibe for Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire.

Betty White, who will be honored at Saturday's Screen Actors Guild Awards with a lifetime achievement salute, seems to just get better with age.
Once described by the Wall Street Journal as "television's longest-working actress," the 88-year-old White had her first starring sitcom role in 1953's Life With Elizabeth.
For many years after that you might say she was best known not so much as an actress but as herself, Betty White – pretty, pert, charming – on talk shows and game shows. It was only in middle age that she landed her two most famous roles, both of which confirmed her as a funny, unusually nimble actress who could quicken the chemistry of any sitcom ensemble.
