Here Are The 2021 SAG Nominations!


This morning, the Screen Actors Guild announced their nominees for the best performances of 2021!  Getting a SAG nomination does not necessarily mean that a performer is guaranteed to get an Oscar nomination but it’s definitely a step in the right direction.  The Actors Branch is the biggest branch of the Academy and all the members of the Actors Branch are a member of SAG.  However, the majority of the people in SAG are not members of the Academy’s Actors Branch, which is why it’s rare that SAG and the Oscars ever line up 100%.

Looking over the SAG nominations, it’s good news for Don’t Look Up and House of Gucci, two Oscar contenders that have not been particularly popular with the regional critics.  It’s bad news for Kristen Stewart, whose acclaimed performance in Spencer was not nominated.  It’s also bad news — really bad news — for Mass, which is the type of film that should have received at least a Best Ensemble nomination.  I’m also a little surprised that West Side Story did not pick an ensemble nomination, though Ariana DeBose was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

The Power of the Dog was not nominated for Best Ensemble but it did pick up nominations for Benedict Cumberbatch, Kisten Dunst, and Kodi Smit-McPhee so I would say the film is definitely in good shape.

For those keeping track of Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s Oscar chances, the lack of a Best Stunt Ensemble nomination should be a bit of a warning sign that it may not happen.

That nomination for Don’t Look Up is going to bother me for at least the next four months.
