SAG Nominations Snubs: 'First Man,' 'If Beale Street Could Talk' Shut Out
On the TV side, it was more bad news for 'Silicon Valley,' 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,' 'Orange Is the New Black' and 'Succession.'
The Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations brought good news for a number of films and TV shows that were snubbed by last week's Golden Globe nominations, including Mary Queen of Scots, A Quiet Place and Star Is Born supporting actor Sam Elliott on the film side, and Grace and Frankie, This Is Us, Better Call Saul, Maniac star Emma Stone and House of Cards lead Robin Wright on the TV side.
But Wednesday morning's SAG nominations announcement also brought bad news for some films and series that were recognized by the Globes and some that continued to be shut out by both of the high-profile winter awards.
On the film side, despite a big push for awards attention this year, no Netflix movies were nominated, apart from a stunt nod for The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. But titles ranging from Private Life to 22 July to Roma, the latter not really expected to get SAG nods due to its cast of largely unknown actors, were all shut out by an awards organization that has previously nominated Netflix films like Beasts of No Nation and Mudbound. The streamer did land the most nominations of any company, 16, thanks to its dominance on the TV side.
Other films not receiving any SAG nominations include Ben Is Back, Boy Erased, Destroyer, Eighth Grade, First Reformed, First Man, The Hate U Give, Hereditary, If Beale Street Could Talk (especially supporting actress Regina King), Ruth Bader Ginsburg biopic On the Basis of Sex, The Rider and Widows.
Meanwhile, despite nods in other categories, Green Book, The Favourite, Vice and Mary Poppins Returns were left out of the SAG Awards' best picture equivalent, best cast. Black Panther scored a best cast nod but none of its actors were nominated for individual awards. Individual actors who failed to get SAG noms despite pundits expecting them to be in contention include Lin-Manuel Miranda (Mary Poppins Returns) and Nicole Kidman (Boy Erased and Destroyer).
On the TV side, a number of series recognized by the Golden Globes were left out, including The Good Place, Homecoming, Kidding, Patrick Melrose, Pose and Westworld, which did receive a stunt nomination.
Series left out by both awards organizations include Black-ish, Little Drummer Girl, Silicon Valley, Succession and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
And while Atlanta scored a best comedy ensemble nod, star Donald Glover was not nominated for an individual award. Similarly, the final season of FX's The Americans landed a best drama ensemble nod but none of the actors, including stars Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, were nominated for individual awards.
