The Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations were announced on Wednesday morning. Margot has been nominated for the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role award. Congratulations to Margot! Catch the SAG Awards ceremony on January 21 (Sunday), on TNT and TBS.

EW – On Wednesday, the SAG Awards announced their nominees for this year’s best performances in film and television, kicking the Oscar race into high gear.

Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash announced the nominations from the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood on Wednesday morning. In the film categories, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri led with a total of four nominations, including Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell, and Woody Harrelson, as well as a nomination for best ensemble. Award season favorites like Lady Bird, Get Out, and The Shape of Water also picked up multiple nominations.

The SAG Awards also recognized rom-com favorite The Big Sick, which was surprisingly shut out of Monday’s Golden Globe nominations. Holly Hunter scored a best supporting actress nod, while the film was also nominated for best ensemble.

Historically, the SAG Awards are the awards show that best predict the eventual Oscar nominees — especially because SAG voters most closely overlap with Academy voters. There will always be some upsets, but as a general rule, SAG’s picks for actor, actress, supporting actor, and supporting actress are a good indication of who will eventually get nominated for an Academy Award. The award for best ensemble — SAG’s version of best picture — can also help a film gain Oscar buzz: Last year, four of SAG’s five best ensemble nominees all went on to score an Oscar nom for best picture.

Joker-Harley Quinn Movie in the Works

Joker-Harley Quinn Movie in the Works With Jared Leto, Margot Robbie

VARIETY – Warner Bros. is developing an untitled tentpole movie starring Jared Leto as the Joker and Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn.

Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who direct and exec produce NBC’s “This Is Us,” are in final negotiations to direct the villain movie as part of the expanding DC Entertainment universe.

Leto and Robbie will reprise the roles they played in the studio’s 2016 super-villain mash-up “Suicide Squad.” The studio has not unveiled any logline other than a “criminal love story.”

And the Joker-Harley Quinn project is separate from Warner’s recently unveiled standalone Joker origin movie being developed as a potential directing vehicle for Todd Phillips of “The Hangover” — which will not star Leto.

Ficarra and Requa directed Robbie and Will Smith in the 2015 heist movie “Focus.” Their other big-screen credits include “I Love You Phillip Morris,” “Crazy, Stupid, Love” and “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.”

Warner Bros. has been attempting to take advantage of Leto and Robbie — the two most popular stars of “Suicide Squad,” which received underwhelming reviews. The film, directed by David Ayer, was a solid box office hit, grossing $745 million worldwide and the studio subsequently announced that it was working on a “Suicide Squad” sequel.

WB revealed in December that Robbie and Ayer were re-teaming on the female DC villains movie “Gotham City Sirens,” based on a comic series launched by DC in 2009 with the Harley Quinn, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy. The new Joker-Harley Quinn project appears to have superseded “Gotham City Sirens” at this point.

Warner Bros. has been attempting to exploit the DC characters above and beyond its mainstay Batman and Superman characters to compete effectively against the ongoing success of the Disney-Marvel tentpoles. It succeeded this summer with the impressive performance of “Wonder Woman” as the fourth installment in the studio’s DC Extended Universe, which launched with 2013’s “Man of Steel,” followed by last year’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Suicide Squad.”

Its next entry will come on Nov. 17 with “Justice League,” which will feature Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash and Ray Fisher as The Cyborg with Zack Snyder directing. The sixth entry is the “Aquaman” standalone movie, starring Momoa with James Wan directing. That movie, which began shooting in May in Australia, is set for a Dec. 21, 2018, launch.

“Wonder Woman 2” is the only other movie in the DC Extended Universe that’s been given a release date — Dec. 13, 2019.

Robbie’s Tonya Harding biopic “I, Tonya” will premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival.
