SAG Awards 2018 nominations: Game of Thrones, The Crown, The Handmaid’s Tale, and more

SAG Awards 2018 nominationsThe 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.
