20th Annual SAG Awards Nominees Announced

20th Annual SAG Awards Nominees Announced

Let the chaos begin! All year the movie studios have been delivering over hundreds of films for your viewing pleasure, and now awards season has officially kicked off with the announcement of the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards nominees. Clark Gregg (Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD) and Sasha Alexander (Rizzoli & Isles) were on the scene this morning to read off the list of nominees in six film and nine television categories. The SAG Awards air live on Saturday, January 18, 2014. See the full list of nominees after the break.

There weren’t too many surprises that stood out this year, such as 12 Years a Slave, Dallas Buyers Club, and August: Osage County. But what really throws me for a loop is the support for Nebraska, Philomena, All Is Lost, and The Butler. There were by far many superior performances than what was scene in those aforementioned films. Wolf of Wall Street was not released in time for this voting.

I’m glad to see Dallas Buyers Club get as much recognition as it should, but ensemble cast is bit over excessive. Jennifer Garner and the rest of the supporting cast were highly overshadowed by Leto and McConnaughey; both nominated for supporting and lead male roles, respectively. Which brings me to question why Forest Whitaker is nominated for The Butler. Because Wolf of Wall Street missed the cut off, and I’m assuming Her did also, this would have been a different game. Bruce Dern was OK [in Nebraska], but didn’t deliver anything to blow me away.

It’s also nice to see Gandolfini snag a nod for his great performance in Enough Said posthumus, but I don’t think his performance was as strong as some of his other contenders.

As for the TV categories, Breaking Bad, Homeland, Boardwalk Empire, House of Cards, and Game of Thrones take the lead in drama. And Arrested Development gets some big recognition for Best Ensemble Comedy and Best Lead Actor (Jason Bateman). This gives Netflix three big nods for awards season, and the fun has just begun.
