Lady Gaga, Olivia Colman, Will Smith in the running : Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations
The SAG Awards, presented by the actors guild SAG-AFTRA, are among the most reliable Oscar bellwethers.
Seldom does a movie or performance not nominated by the screen actors end up winning at the Academy Awards. Actors make up the biggest percentage of the film academy, so their choices have the largest sway.
But last year, SAG and the academy diverged more than usual. Only one of its acting winners Daniel Kaluuya (Judas and the Black Messiah repeated at the Oscars.
The other SAG winners were Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and Yuh-Jung Youn in Minari.
The Aaron Sorkin courtroom drama The Trial of the Chicago 7 won best ensemble at a virtual SAG Awards while Chloé Zhao’s Nomadland which included many nonprofessional actors and went unnominated for ensemble triumphed at the Oscars.
The nominees for best male lead actor are: Will Smith (King Richard), Cumberbatch, Denzel Washington The Tragedy of Macbeth, Andrew Garfield Tick, Tick Boom! and Javier Bardem Being the Ricardos.
Up for best female lead are: Lady Gaga (House of Gucci), Jessica Chastain (The Eyes of Tammy Faye), Olivia Colman (The Lost Daughter), Nicole Kidman (Being the Ricardos) and Jennifer Hudson (Respect).
Joining Belfast and CODA for best ensemble were the casts for House of Gucci, Don’t Look Up and King Richard. Notably left out were the casts of Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story (which did land a supporting nod for Ariana DeBose) and Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog.
Campion’s film, though, landed three individual SAG noms: Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst and Kodi Smit-McPhee.
Will Smith, Lady Gaga and Ben Affleck landed individual nominations for the 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards on Wednesday, while the casts of Belfast and CODA were among those nominated for the guild’s top award, best ensemble.
The nominees were announced Wednesday by actors Vanessa Hudgens and Rosario Dawson on Instagram Live.
While the nominations were conducted virtually due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, the streamed announcement still represented one of the most meaningful mornings in an awards season largely snuffed out by the pandemic.
