2018 SAG Award Nominations Include Get Out, Shape of Water & More

advertising

Nominations for the 2018 Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards have just been revealed, as announced by Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash. The ceremony recognizes outstanding acting in both film and television, and SAG Awards nominations are voted on by SAG members themselves. First, the Motion Picture and Television Nominating Committees (a group of 2500 SAG members chosen at random each year) vote to choose the nominees, and then active SAG members choose their favorites. It's been teased as being a self-congratulatory ceremony (what awards ceremony isn't?), but it's also played a significant role in predicting Oscar winners. On the other side of the coin, the Emmys have also played a role in predicting SAG Award winners in the television categories.

So, does 2017 seem like it will carry on that predictive tradition?

In the film categories, Get OutLady BirdThree Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, and The Shape of Water continue to reign supreme in nominations throughout this especially competitive awards season, but the SAG Awards also included one film noticeably missing from the 2018 Golden Globe nominations. The Big Sick, which pegged to be a strong contender come awards season, was left out of the Golden Globe nominations, but earned a SAG nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. Woody Harrelson is also a pleasant addition into the mix in the Supporting Male Actor category for Three Billboards, sharing the nomination with co-star Sam Rockwell.

Netflix's Mudbound has also gotten some love from SAG, earning an expected nomination for Mary J. Blige in the Supporting Female Actor category, but also sharing a spot alongside The Big Sick in Outstanding Cast. On the other hand, Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World missed out completely on SAG nominations, despite the three it earned for the Golden Globes.

As far as television goes, it looks as though the fight between The Crown and The Handmaid's Tale continues. However, in the Comedy Series categories, Netflix's GLOW may very well usurp both Orange is the New Black's Uzo Abuda and Veep's Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who have alternated wins in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series category in recent years. This time around, their votes could easily cancel each other out and give nominee Alison Brie her first individual win for GLOW (she and the cast of Mad Men won Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series in 2009).

The most interesting category is arguably Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series. In this category only two shows earned nominations. All three major actresses in Big Little Lies (Laura Dern, Nicole Kidman, and Reese Witherspoon) earned nominations, while the remaining two nominations belong to Susan Sarandon and Jessica Lange, cos-stars in Feud.
