SAG Awards 2019: Better Call Saul, John Krasinski, Alison Brie among nominees

SAG AwardsThis morning the nominations were official for the 2019 SAG Awards, and by and large, they drew some predictable results … though we do think that there are at least a few surprises sprinkled in with the group. A few shows showed up in places we didn’t think that they would, and we wonder if shows like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel and Barry could cancel themselves out in the acting categories because of double-nominees that are present there.

Take a look at all of the TV nominations, with analysis, below:

Stunt Team

Marvel’s Daredevil
Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan
The Walking Dead

Nice to see Daredevil get a little bit of love for what is turning out to be its final season on the air.

Drama Ensemble

The Americans
Better Call Saul
The Handmaid’s Tale
This Is Us

No real shocker in here, though Ozark doesn’t typically get as much love as the SAG Awards are giving it here. It’s usually just a show for Jason Bateman to get some love for.

Drama Actress

Julia Garner, Ozark
Laura Linney, Ozark
Elisabeth Moss, The Handmaid’s Tale
Sandra Oh, Killing Eve
Robin Wright, House of Cards

The nod for Julia Garner is the one that we definitely did not see coming here.

Drama Actor

Jason Bateman, Ozark
Sterling K., Brown, This Is Us
Joseph Fiennes, The Handmaid’s Tale
John Krasinski, Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan
Bob Odenkirk, Better Call Saul

While we know that John Krasinski is a familiar face, did anyone expect to see a Jack Ryan actor get a nomination? Still, good on him.

Comedy Ensemble

The Kominsky Method
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Pretty much by the book here, no?

Comedy Actress

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

Don’t be surprised if Brie wins after some of the other actors here after they all cancel each other out.

Comedy Actor

Alan Arkin, The Kominsky Method
Michael Douglas, The Kominsky Method
Bill Hader, Barry
Tony Shalhoub, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Henry Winkler, Barry

We could basically say the same thing here.

TV Movie / Limited Series Actress

Amy Adams, Sharp Objects
Patricia Arquette, Escape at Dannemora
Patricia Clarkson, Sharp Objects
Penelope Cruz, The Assassination of Gianni Versace
Emma Stone, Maniac

It’s probably Adams’ race to lose, but isn’t this a really wonderful field as a whole?

TV Movie / Limited Series Actor

Antonio Banderas, Genius
Darren Criss, The Assassination of Gianni Versace
Hugh Grant, A Very English Scandal
Anthony Hopkins, King Lear
Bill Pullman, The Sinner

It’s nice to see Bill Pullman get a little bit of love for The Sinner, but other than that, we saw most of this coming.
