The SAG Awards 2018 nominations were announced on early Wednesday, and we would note that by and large, they are predictable. The SAG Awards have always been predictable. Once they uncover a list of shows/performers that they like they don’t often move all that far away from them.
Therefore, don’t be surprised to see so many shows and performers on this list who have been here before. If you’re looking for our take on notable snubs, just be sure to come back a little bit later in the morning.
Game of Thrones
The Handmaid’s Tale
This Is Us
Go ahead and expect The Handmaid’s Tale to win this, given that it’s won virtually everything else so far.
Millie Bobby Brown, Stranger Things
Claire Foy, The Crown
Laura Linney, Ozark
Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid’s Tale
Robin Wright, House of Cards
Jason Bateman, Ozark
Sterling K. Brown, This Is Us
Peter Dinklage, Game of Thrones
David Harbour, Stranger Things
Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul
Curb Your Enthusiasm
Orange is the New Black
After all of the inexplicable snubs that have taken place elsewhere, it’s actually rather nice to see Veep nominated somewhere for an award again!
Uzo Aduba, Orange is the New Black
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep
Jane Fonda, Grace and Frankie
Lily Tomlin, Grace and Frankie
Alison Brie, GLOW
Not sure we agree with two Grace and Frankie nominations here, but here’s another thing about the SAG Awards: They love living legends.
Anthony Anderson, black-ish
Aziz Ansari, Master of None
Larry David, Curb Your Enthusiasm
Sean Hayes, Will & Grace
William H. Macy, Shameless
Marc Maron, GLOW
TV Movie / Miniseries Actress
Laura Dern, Big Little Lies
Nicole Kidman, Big Little Lies
Jessica Lange, FEUD: Bette & Joan
Susan Sarandon, FEUD: Bette & Joan
Reese Witherspoon, Big Little Lies
TV Movie / Miniseries Actor
Benedict Cumberbatch, Sherlock
Jeff Daniels, Godless
Robert De Niro, The Wizard of Lies
Geoffrey Rush, Genius
Alexander Skarsgard, Big Little Lies
Yep, Cumberbatch is nominated for something that aired almost two years ago. It’s funny how the SAG eligibility works!
Game of Thrones
The Walking Dead
In light of the death of stuntman John Bernecker on The Walking Dead this past year this nomination is all the more notable.
