A closer look at the SAG, PGA and DGA award nominations

SAG Awards Nominations: The Embrace Ensemble

Two films dominated the SAG Awards nominations, earning both nods from the actors as acting ensemble and Get personal nods from their performers. In a season where some of the nominees appear to be Everything Everywhere All On Once, the announcement of this year’s SAG contenders didn’t offer many surprises, and indeed seemed to solidify the key Oscar Favorites when voting starts.

With major wins at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards, A18’s Everything Everywhere may be proving itself to be a film worth beating . It received five nominations at SAG, including Best Actor, Leading Actress Michelle Yeoh, Supporting Actor Hui Kwan and Supporting Actresses Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu.

But Searchlight’s The Banshees of Inisherin is tied with Everything Everywhere Takeaway: In addition to Best Actors, starring Colin Farrell (Universal Winner) and supporting cast Kerry Condon, Brendan Gleeson and Barry Keoghan was nominated. Considering the significant overlap between SAG and the Academy’s casting branch, which bodes well, eight actors from both features could be nominated for Oscars in January .

But awards season always has a plot twist, and here comes the surprising, The Fablemans‘s Michelle Williams was accidentally left out of the leading actress competition. (She decided early on to run in the crowded Best Actress field, rather than supporting.) Paul Dano was nominated in the Supporting category, however — the one and only Fabelmans Stars get personal acting nominations. Babylon and Women Talking were also nominated for Best Actor but failed to win for their stars Personal honor.

Not surprising given the dominance of drama this awards season, the SAG Awards shows Netflix’s reversal of fortune in the movie category. Last year it led the film nominations with seven nominations, but this year it has only three — all of which are somewhat unexpected since they weren’t mentioned on the rest of the podium: Hustle Adam Sandler (actor), Blonde Ana de Armas (actress) and The Good Nurse ‘s Eddie Redmayne (supporting role). Still, Netflix was the only streamer in the movie category to gain traction.
