2019 Screen Actors Guild Nominations
Can I just say, 9:00 am announcements? Really? That's late. My ass has been ready since 6:30 am. I can't remember the last time I side eyed a list of nominations this hard. While there's some things I obviously like, girl, WHAT IS GOING ON HERE? The list of nominations is below + my thoughts.
Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture
A Star Is Born
Crazy Rich Asians”
This biggest wtf here is obviously Bohemian Rhapsody and I'll go the extra mile into unpopular territory and say A Star Is Born shouldn't be here either when all three of the main actors already got nominated. It's not like anyone else got a thing to do in that movie. But Bohemian Rhapsody? Really? Widows, Wildlife, If Beale Street Could Talk, Blindspotting,Beautiful Boy, Boy Erased, hell anything else would've been better. This is taking away how awesome it is that Black Panther, BlackKklansman and Crazy Rich Asians all got recognized.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role
Christian Bale, “Vice”
Bradley Cooper, “A Star Is Born”
Rami Malek, “Bohemian Rhapsody”
Viggo Mortensen, “Green Book”
John David Washington, “BlacKkKlansman”
I'm so happy John David Washington snuck in. He was the biggest question mark. The other four are locks.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role
Emily Blunt, “Mary Poppins Returns”
Glenn Close, “The Wife”
Olivia Colman, “The Favourite”
Lady Gaga, “A Star Is Born”
Melissa McCarthy, “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”
I still need to see The Favourite. Otherwise there's no surprises here like I was hoping there would be. Elsie Fisher, Viola Davis or Thomasin Mackenzie would've been nice additions.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role
Mahershala Ali, “Green Book”
Timothee Chalamet, “Beautiful Boy”
Adam Driver, “BlacKkKlansman”
Sam Elliott, “A Star Is Born”
Richard E. Grant, “Can You Ever Forgive Me?”
Sam Elliott got his nomination after missing the Globes but I still argue he was playing himself. I'm rooting for Driver here.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role
Amy Adams, "Vice"
Emily Blunt, "A Quiet Place"
Margot Robbie, "Mary, Queen of Scots"
Emma Stone, "The Favourite"
Rachel Weiss, "The Favourite"
Blunt and Robbie were huge surprises here which is fine, I guess but Regina King missing out on Beale Street is a shocker considering she's essentially the front runner. Elizabeth Debecki's Oscar chances for Widows are done, and that breaks my heart.
Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture
Antman and the Wasp
Avengers: Infinity War
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
Mission: Impossible – Fallout
Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series
Better Call Saul
The Handmaid’s Tale
This Is Us
Americans getting Drama Series but nothing for the lead actors is kind of shady, SAGS. Damn.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series
Jason Bateman, Ozark
Sterling K. Brown, This Is Us
Joseph Fiennes, The Handmaid’s Tale
John Krasinki, Jack Ryan
Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul
John Krasinski is a surprise. I really hope Joseph Fiennes takes this because it's a shame he didn't win an Emmy.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series
Julia Garner, "Ozark"
Laura Linney, "Ozark"
Elisabeth Moss, "The Handmaid's Tale"
Sandra Oh, "Killing Eve"
Robin Wright, "House of Cards"
I knew the SAGs would give Robin Wright some love after the Globes didn't. While I tried and failed to get into Ozark, I'm so happy for Julia Garner. She's wonderful.
Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series
The Kominsky Method
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
I don't watch any of these, though Atlanta is on my list.
Outstanding Performane by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series
Alan Arkin, “The Kominsky Method”
Michael Douglas, “The Kominsky Method”
Bill Hader, “Barry”
Tony Shalhoub, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”
Henry Winkler, “Barry”
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series
Alex Borstein, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”
Alison Brie, “GLOW”
Rachel Brosnahan, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”
Jane Fonda, “Grace and Frankie”
Lily Tomlin, “Grace and Frankie”
I still can't wrap my head around the SAG's love for Grace and Frankie.
Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie
Antonio Banderas, “Genius: Picasso”
Darren Criss, “Assassination of Gianni Versace”
Hugh Grant, “A Very English Scandal”
Anthony Hopkins, “King Lear”
Bill Pullman, “The Sinner”
Bill Bullman was awful in The Sinner. It was so distracting. They left Daniel Bruhl out for The Alienist and Taylor Kitsch for Waco for this? Jesus.
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie
Amy Adams, “Sharp Objects”
Patricia Arquette, “Escape at Dannemora”
Patricia Clarkson, “Sharp Objects”
Penelope Cruz, “Assassination of Gianni Versace”
Emma Stone, “Maniac”
I still don't get how Cruz is getting nominated for this. Actually, I do, but still. Emma Stone for Maniac is a bit of a surprise. I thought the Globes would give that some love. I'm pulling for Adams.
Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Television Series
The Walking Dead
