Martin Scorsese‘s The Wolf of Wall Street didn’t actually get snubbed by SAG because only a portion of the membership has seen it thus far. The Wolf screeners didn’t go out (and won’t go out until just before Christmas, I’m told) due to Scorsese’s 11th hour completion of the film, and…well, here’s a brief explanation from Paramount’s hard-working Lea Yardum:

“We did not have enough time to make screeners for SAG and we started screening for them ten days into their balloting so we always knew we were going [to be] at a disadvantage. Based on when the film was delivered [by Scorsese], when we could start screening and when we could get DVDs made, it was a challenge in itself getting enough SAG nominating committee members in to see the film.
