Which 'star will be born' at this year's ceremony?
Awards season marches on! The nominees for the 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards were announced this morning, honoring the very best in on-screen performances of 2018.
Selected by a jury of their peers (i.e. actors), the SAG nominations are typically viewed as the strongest prognosticator in predicting which actors will be nominated for Academy Awards. What does that mean, analysis-wise? Well, it's good news for the three leading ladies of Yorgos Lanthimos's The Favourite and not-so-great news for Ethan Hawke of First Reformed, Elsie Fisher of Eighth Grade, Toni Collette of Hereditary, and Regina King of If Beale Street Could Talk.
Shockingly, it's looking more and more likely that Emily Blunt will be nominated for an upcoming Academy Award for her performance in the Disney musical/sequel, Mary Poppins Returns, given her SAG and Golden Globe nomination for her starring in the title role. Blunt is a double-nominee at the SAG Awards this year, also being recognized for her supporting turn in A Quiet Place.
The 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place on Sunday, January 27th from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California, and below is the complete list of theatrically-released feature films being honored at this year's Screen Actors Guild Awards.
