The Screen Actors Guild unveiled nominations Wednesday for its 29th annual SAG Awards as the movie awards season arrives full-steam, coming the same week as last night’s Golden Globes and Sunday’s Critics Choice Awards.
The marquee ensemble film award category this year features Paramount’s Babylon, Searchlight’s The Banshees of Inisherin, A24’s Everything Everywhere All at Once, Universal’s The Fabelmans and United Artists’ Women Talking. Banshees and Fabelmans are having a good week, having taken the top film prizes at last night’s Globes.
Other notable nominees this morning on the film side included several who have been making waves already this season: Cate Blanchett joined Michelle Yeoh, Viola Davis Ana de Armas and Danielle Deadwyler in the lead actress race, while in the actor category, Austin Butler, Colin Farrell and Brendan Fraser are joined by Bill Nighy and Adam Sandler, the latter for Hustle.
Last year, the SAG Awards helped launch several eventual Oscar winners, picking CODA in its marquee cast ensemble category along with Jessica Chastain, Will Smith, Ariana DeBose and Troy Kotsur who all took home Academy Awards.
In this morning’s TV categories, two new ensemble winners will be crowned with last year’s winners Succession and Ted Lasso not eligible this go-round. That leaves a drama field that includes AMC’s final season of Better Call Saul, Netflix’s The Crown and Ozark, Apple TV+’s Ozark and HBO’s The White Lotus. In comedy, ABC’s Abbott Elementary, HBO/HBO Max’s Barry and Hacks, FX’s The Bear and Hulu’s Only Murders in the Building are in the running.
The SAG Awards made a little news about that February date earlier this morning, when it was announced that Netflix has come aboard to stream the show on its platform beginning in 2024, replacing longtime home TNT and TBS. For this year, the ceremony will stream on Netflix’s YouTube channel.
After today’s SAG noms, the winners in the guild’s 15 acting categories will be revealed Sunday, February 26 during a ceremony at the Fairmont Century Plaza in Los Angeles.
