Travel to the Oscar is getting closer, SAG-AFTRA has announced a nomination for the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Usually, SAG nominations are not far from the Oscars.
SAG nominations are also largely a strong predictor of Oscar’s acting and best picture nominees. Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash will announce the SAG nomination at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood on Wednesday, December 13th.
‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ leads in the nomination. The film was written and directed by Martin McDonagh. Frances McDormand who became a major star was also nominated alongside Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell.
‘Get Out’, ‘Lady Bird’, ‘I, Tonya’ and ‘The Big Sick’, also listed their names in multiple nominations. There’s also a ‘Wonder Woman’ that earned a lot of praise in the midst of DC Comics.
Meanwhile, ‘The Post’, a potential strong contender for the Academy Awards, was not included in the SAG nomination. Moreover, Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks are surprisingly not included in the best actor category.
Star of ‘Call Me by Your Name’, Timothee Chalamet is nominated. In contrast to his co-star Armie Hammer who surprisingly did not achieve nomination.
The same thing happened to the ‘Battle of the Sexes’ star, Emma Stone who was not nominated when her rival on screen, Steve Carell was nominated for best supporting actor.
In television, ‘Big Little Lies’ and ‘GLOW’ dominated the four nominations. ‘Big Little Lies’ starring actress Laura Dern, Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon are competing against the stars ‘Feud: Bette and Joan’ Jessica Lange and Susan Sarandon.
While making ‘GLOW’, also made a surprise because it did not get many awards other than Alison Brie’s performance with Golden Globe nomination reward. ‘Black-ish’ received two nominations for Outstanding Ensemble and Outstanding Performance by Male Actor (Anthony Anderson) in the comedy series, but Tracee Ellis Ross surprisingly did not receive the same award.
