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.
