On January 10, the nominees for the Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced. It will be presented on February 24th. Last year's favorites of the film season and box office stars - the film Barbie and Oppenheimer - naturally received five nominations each. Some of the obvious contenders for awards were left out, and a few dark horses came to the forefront, from which no one expected such a jump.
Misfire - May December
Todd Haynes' family drama has already been penciled in as an Oscar nominee. Charles Melton and Natalie Portman were nominated for acting at the Golden Globe Awards, but in the end were left with nothing. The film's ignoring by the Screen Actors Guild came as a complete surprise to experts and fans, not a single nomination. Among the versions of what happened in social networks began to promote the idea that the actors' "union" did it because of the director's unflattering view of the heroine-actress, played by Portman.
Misfire – «Air»
Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Viola Davis, Jason Bateman. There's a lot that audiences love about this movie, but the drama about Nike hiring Michael Jordan to lay golden eggs didn't receive a single nomination from the Screen Actors Guild. Even after a pair of Golden globe awards nominations and one nomination for Best Acting Ensemble at the Critics Choice Awards.
Misfire - Leonardo DiCaprio
Leo already has a SAG Award for "The Revenant" (2015). Last year, he starred in Killers of the Flower Moon, and many thought he had a Screen Actors Guild nomination for his portrayal of the dim-witted Ernest Burkhardt. But that's not the case, he's not on the shortlist. But Scorsese's thriller could win the award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Feature Film. Robert De Niro and Lily Gladstone, who already has a Golden Globe for her work, are also nominated.
Misfire - Mark Ruffalo
Ruffalo can take solace with DiCaprio in a Los Angeles drinking establishment. Like his colleague, Mark, who garnered plenty of praise for his performance in the comedy-drama Poor Things, was left without a SAG nomination.
Misfire - Fanteige Barrino
The movie musical "The Color Purple" received a nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Feature Film. And Danielle Brooks was also recognized for her performance in one of the supporting roles. However, Barrineau, who claimed a nomination for her performance in the title role, was left with nothing.
Surprise - The Departed.
For his work in this comedy drama, Paul Giamatti received a Golden globe award for his performance in the lead role in a musical/comedy, as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination. Davine Joy Randolph also received a SAG nomination for his performance in a supporting role. The movie was "rolled" in terms of the cast's work, but at least the writers have something to take solace in.
Surprise - "Diane Nayed."
The story, based on true events, of 64-year-old Diane Nayed sailing from Cuba to Florida received two nominations. Annette Bening for her performance in the title role and Jodie Foster for her performance in a supporting role. The situation is the same with the Golden Globe nominations.
Surprise, "American Fiction."
The authors of this comedy-drama did not count on anything. What was the surprise when they announced three nominations in their favor. Outstanding Performance by a Cast, Outstanding Performance by Jeffrey Wright in a Leading Role and Outstanding Performance by Sterling K. Brown in a Supporting Role.
Surprise - Penelope Cruz
Despite the presence of "Oscar", the nomination of the Screen Actors Guild for playing a supporting role in the biopic "Ferrari" was a pleasant gift for the actress. And according to experts, again, a bid for "Oscar". Authoritative magazine in the film business The Hollywood Reporter wrote that Cruz's performance in the movie "the best, but until the last day underestimated".
