Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri Dominates SAG Nominations, But No Love for Globes Fave The Post

The 2018 awards season field continued to take shape Wednesday morning with the announcement of the nominees for the Screen Actors Guild Awards. It was a good day for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, which scored the most nominations at four, while Lady Bird wasn’t far behind with three.

The SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast is considered a strong predictor for the Oscar Best Picture race—it’s been 22 years since a movie won the Academy Award without getting at least a nomination for the ensemble award—meaning the category is likely to include The Big Sick, Get Out, Lady Bird, Mudbound, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, though some critics are pushing back against this. (As Mark Harris points out, SAG voters and Oscar voters do not consist of the exact same pools of people.)

The Post, which on Monday morning received Golden Globe nominations for Best Drama, Actor, and Actress, received zero SAG nominations, while Oscar-hopefuls Call Me By Your Name and Dunkirk also failed to pick up any acting nominations. (The latter is nominated only in the stunt category.) Get Out is nominated for Best Ensemble, but because SAG rules require an actor to have their own title card to be included in the “ensemble,” Betty Gabriel and Lil Rel Howery aren’t included. Tiffany Haddish was also snubbed again, potentially putting an end to her already long odds of scoring an Oscar nod for her performance in Girls Trip.

Over on the TV side, Big Little Lies continues to dominate every field it enters, with four nominations, though it can only pick up two at most—three of its four nominations are for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie (Laura Dern, Reese Witherspoon, and Nicole Kidman). GLOW also picked up four—Marc Maron and Alison Brie both received nods in the comedy series actor categories, while the whole ensemble was acknowledged for the stunt and comedic categories.

The ceremony, hosted by Kristen Bell, will air live on Sunday, Jan. 21, on TNT and TBS.
