This 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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
The Kominsky Method
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel
Pretty much by the book here, no?
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.
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.
