Sydney, 2022-01-12 12:04:35. Will Smith, Lady Gaga and Ben Affleck score SAG Nominations
NEW YORK – The Oscar race may be missing out on personal brilliance this year, but it’s not lacking in star power. Will Smith, Lady Gaga and Ben Affleck earned individual nominations for the 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards on Wednesday, while actors from “Belfast” and “Cuda” were among the nominees for Best Guild Award, Best Ensemble.
The nominees were announced Wednesday by actors Vanessa Hudgens and Rosario Dawson on Instagram Live. While the nominations were made almost entirely out of the sudden rise in COVID-19 cases, the streaming ad still represented one of the most meaningful mornings in an award season largely put down by the pandemic.
He joined “Belfast” and “CODA” for best cast for “House of Gucci”, “Don’t Look Up” and “King Richard”. Notably, the cast of Steven Spielberg’s “West Side Story” (which earned him a nod of support for Ariana Deboss) and Jane Campion’s “Dog Power” were also left out. Despite this, Campion did get individual SAG names for Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, and Cody Smit McPhee.
The Golden Globes, which is usually a kick-off party in the last leg of the Oscars, barely made a peep. They were unceremoniously announced Sunday on Twitter at a private party due to the Hollywood boycott of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which has been beleaguered by diversity and ethical issues. The Omicron surge also prompted the Critics’ Choice Awards to postpone the January 9 in-person ceremony. For the second year, Oscar season has come virtual – and it struggled to make a lot of noise.
But the SAG nominations suggest that a lot of famous faces are in the pipeline this year.
The nominees for Best Leading Actor are: Will Smith (“King Richard”), Denzel Washington (“The Tragedy of Macbeth”), Andrew Garfield (“Tick, Tick…Boom!”), Javier Bardem (“Being the Ricardos”), and Cumberbatch .
Nominees for Best Heroine include Lady Gaga (“House of Gucci”), Jessica Chastain (“The Eyes of Tammy Faye”), Olivia Colman (“The Lost Daughter”), Nicole Kidman (“Being the Ricardos”), and Jennifer Hudson (“Respect”). ).
The nominees for Best Female Supporting Performance are: Caitriona Balfe (“Belfast”), Cate Blanchett (“Nightmare Alley”), Ruth Negga (“Passing”), DeBose and Dunst.
The top male supporting nominees are: Affleck (“The Tender Bar”), Bradley Cooper (“Licorice Pizza”), Troy Kotsur (“CODA”), Jared Leto (“House of Gucci”) and Smit-McPhee.
The SAG Awards, presented by the SAG-AFTRA Actors Guild, are among the most authoritative Oscar bells. Rarely does it end up with a movie or performance that screen actors aren’t nominated for an Academy Awards. Actors make up the largest proportion of the film academy, so their choices have the most impact.
But in the past year, the SAG and the Academy have diverged more than usual. Only one of the acting winners – Daniel Kaluuya (“Judas and the Black Christ”) – repeated at the Academy Awards. (The other two SAG winners are Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and Yuh-Jung Youn in “Minari.”) Aaron Sorkin’s courtroom drama “The Trial of the Chicago 7” won SAG Best Ensemble Virtual Awards while SAG won the Best Virtual Ensemble Awards Chloe Zhao’s “Nomadland” – which featured several non-professional actors and fell out of a nomination for the band – at the Academy Awards.
This date will give hope to supporters of Kristen Stewart (“Spencer”), who were overlooked by screen actors. Others who missed Wednesday’s attendance included Peter Dinklage (“Cyrano”), Ciaran Hinds (“Belfast”) and Rachel Ziegler (“West Side Story”).
While some have rooted for some of the year’s most famous blockbuster to give the struggling Academy Awards a shakeup of popularity, “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” “Dion” and “No Time to Die” received no major names on Wednesday from the Actors Guild. Despite this, “Dune” and “No Time to Die” joined “Black Widow”, “The Matrix Resurrections” and “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” in the exciting group category.
Probably the most popular TV series of 2021 has received a lot of recognition. Netflix’s highly-watched “Squid Game” has been nominated for four SAG Awards including Best Dramatic Series. HBO’s “Succession” (four nods including Best Drama Series and Best Actor for Jeremy Strong and Brian Cox) also nominated for television nominations. “Ted Lasso” (five nods including best comedy series); and “The Morning Show” (four nods including best drama series).
The 28th Annual SAG Awards will take place on February 27 and will be broadcast on TNT and TBS. The Oscars have been scheduled for March 27.
