On 2.4.21 the SAG noms were announced. It’s now apparent that SAG/AFTRA members were more driven by identity politics than Academy members seemed to be in lieu of this morning’s Oscar noms. For one thing the SAGsters blew off Mank‘s Amanda Seyfried, who has triumphantly landed a Best Supporting Actress nom. And they ignored Sound of Metal‘s Paul Raci, who prevailed this morning with a Best Supporting Actor nom. And they handed SAG Best Ensemble noms (the equivalent of their Best Picture noms) to Spike Lee‘s Da 5 Bloods, Regina King‘s One Night in Miami and George C. Wolfe‘s Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom — all of which failed to land Best Picture noms this morning.
The SAG awards will air on the evening of Sunday, April 4, at 6 pm Pacific (TNT/TBS).
