EntertainmentSAG Awards 2024 Nominations - Recognizing Excellence in Film and Television

A Star-Studded Affair: Dominant Nominations

Barbenheimer Takes the Lead

The 30th Screen Actors Guild Awards or SAG Awards 2024 nominations are in, and it’s a showdown between two blockbuster films, “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer,” each receiving four nominations, including nods for their ensembles. The fierce competition for the top prize also includes “Killers of the Flower Moon,” “American Fiction,” and “The Color Purple.”

Television Excellence

On the television front, “Succession” leads with five nominations for its final season, closely followed by “Ted Lasso,” “The Bear,” and “The Last of Us,” each earning four nominations. The battle for the best ensemble in a drama series includes “Succession,” “The Crown,” “The Gilded Age,” “The Last of Us,” and “The Morning Show.”

Industry Heavyweights and Nomination Counts

Warner Bros. Discovery Dominates

Warner Bros. Discovery emerges as the leader in nominations among media and technology companies, receiving a total of 20 for its films and shows. Notable mentions include “The Last of Us,” “Succession,” “The Color Purple,” and “Barbie.” Following closely are Netflix with 12 nominations and Apple with 11.

Celebrating Amidst Turbulence

The awards ceremony is set to celebrate outstanding performances in films and shows released during a tumultuous year marked by a 118-day strike by union members. The strike concluded in November with a new pact, ensuring pay increases and enhanced residuals for actors on streaming platforms. The deal also includes safeguards against the use of artificial intelligence.

SAG Awards 2024 and Oscars: A Symbiotic Relationship

A Glimpse into Oscar Glory

SAG’s nominations often serve as a precursor to the Oscars, with significant overlap between the two. Last year’s SAG award winners, including Brendan Fraser, Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan, and Jamie Lee Curtis, all went on to win Oscars. While SAG doesn’t have a specific category for Best Film, its selections can offer insights into which movies are poised for Academy Awards success.

Oscar-Worthy Performances

“Oppenheimer” star Cillian Murphy receives a nomination for Best Leading Actor, competing against seasoned actors like Paul Giamatti, Colman Domingo, Jeffrey Wright, and Bradley Cooper. The Best Leading Actress category sees a race between Lily Gladstone and Emma Stone, who both secured wins at the Golden Globes. The SAG Awards will further illuminate the path to Oscar glory.

SAG Awards 2024 – Television Drama and Comedy Showdown

Succession’s Triumph

In the drama series category, “Succession” leads with a strong presence in the lead actor category, featuring Kieran Culkin, Brian Cox, and Matthew Macfadyen. The drama actress competition includes powerhouses like Sarah Snook, Jennifer Aniston, Elizabeth Debicki, Bella Ramsey, and Keri Russell, showcasing the wealth of talent in television.

Comedy Ensembles Compete

The comedy ensemble category promises an exciting competition between “The Bear,” “Ted Lasso,” “Only Murders in the Building,” “Abbott Elementary,” and “Barry.” Notable actors like Jason Sudekis, Brett Goldstein, and Bill Hader vie for the Best Actor in a Comedy award, while leading actresses from “Abbott Elementary,” “The Bear,” and “Ted Lasso” compete for the top spot.

SAG Awards 2024 – Snubs, Surprises, and Notable Contenders

Snubs and Surprises

Notable snubs include Leonardo DiCaprio for his role in “Killers of the Flower Moon” and Greta Lee, despite receiving acclaim for “Past Lives.” Penélope Cruz, however, secures a nomination for Best Supporting Actress in “Ferrari.” “May December,” a critically acclaimed film, faces disappointment with Julianne Moore, Natalie Portman, and Charles Melton missing out on nominations.

TV Upsets and Oversights

Surprising omissions include “The Gilded Age” for ensemble nods, while “Yellowjackets,” a highly anticipated series about plane crash survivors, experiences a snub. The nominations reflect a dynamic landscape, acknowledging exceptional performances while raising questions about overlooked shows and actors.
