SAG Film Snubs: 'Silence,' 'Loving,' '20th Century Women'
Tom Hanks and Taraji P. Henson again failed to be recognized for their lead roles in 'Sully' and 'Hidden Figures,' respectively, while Oscar frontrunner 'La La Land' was left out of SAG-AFTRA's best cast category.
While Wednesday's SAG Awards nominations managed to recognize many performers who were left out of the Golden Globe nominations two days earlier, there were still a number of surprising snubs among the movie nominees.
SAG-AFTRA voters failed to recognize such awards hopefuls as Silence (which also didn't make the Globes list), 20th Century Women (which seemed tailor-made for ensemble consideration) and Loving (which earlier this week saw its two stars, Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga, get Globe noms). Also coming up short were Sully, Patriots Day and Rules Don't Apply. And Nocturnal Animals earned only a stunt ensemble nomination.
Sully star Tom Hanks and 20th Century Women lead Annette Bening, two SAG favorites in the past, were left out of the best actor and best actress categories, respectively. Hidden Figures star Taraji P. Henson was not on the list of best actress nominees. Also among the missing were Elle star and critics' favorite Isabelle Huppert and Miss Sloane's Jessica Chastain, both of whom earned Globe nominations as best dramatic actresses.
In the outstanding cast category, the SAG Awards' best-picture equivalent, frontrunners Moonlight and Manchester by the Sea were nominated but fellow awards season front-runner La La Land was not, although it did claim noms for its stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. Similarly, the drama Lion scored supporting nominations for both Dev Patel and Nicole Kidman, but wasn't acknowledged with ensemble honors. And while the crime tale Hell or High Water was represented by a supporting nom for Jeff Bridges, it also failed to secure a slot in SAG-AFTRA's supporting cast race.
