SAG Awards


Hollywood! They just love giving out awards, don’t they? And, in a stunningly lucid move from the moviemaking behemoth, most of those awards are happily and haphazardly doled out during the end of any given calendar year (we’re still confused about the timing of the Oscars, but what can you do). The Screen Actors Guild Awards will not be tossed out to packs of hungry actors until early in the new year, but this morning, SAG did everyone a solid and let a bunch of them know if they should bother to show up for the actual ceremony. That’s right, the SAG noms (sag-noms?) are here, and they are a bizarre combination of the head-slappingly obvious and the deeply, deeply weird. Awards season may drag, and it’s occasionally bafflingly picks (and snubs) like this that keep the whole thing ticking right along. Let’s take a look at the biggest surprises from this morning’s nominations:


The Paperboy Movie Lee Daniels

While we’ve already railed against the use of the word “snub” when it comes to awards season, the term is still getting tossed around when it comes to any list of nominees and winners that at all shocks – and today’s Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations do indeed surprise. Some of the most eye-opening – hell, let’s just call them what they are, which is choices – include the lack of a nomination for Joaquin Phoenix or Amy Adams in The Master (though Philip Seymour Hoffman is recognized here), the major love for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, no nomination for strong favorite Emmanuelle Riva (Amour), and wacky noms like Javier Bardem for Skyfall and Nicole Kidman for The Paperboy (look how happy she is about it!). Oh, awards season, you saucy minx. Check out the full list of nominees (television, too!) after the break.
