Be it a complete shutout or an individual acting snub, here’s who won’t be vying for trophies at the 25th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Here’s who won’t be vying for “The Actor” trophies when the 25th annual SAG Awards air live Jan. 27 (8 p.m. ET/5 PT) on TNT and TBS.
Nicole Kidman: Fresh off a Golden Globe nomination for the gritty noir drama “Destroyer,” Nicole Kidman was denied twice at the SAG Awards – both for “Destroyer” and for her supporting role in “Boy Erased.” (The gay conversion-therapy drama starring Lucas Hedges and Russell Crowe was completely shut out.)
Chadwick Boseman and Michael B. Jordan. The duo led the historic film phenom, which wowed the box office and critics with its African-American superhero cast, as T’Challa and the villainous Erik Killmonger. While “Black Panther” landed a SAG acting ensemble nomination and a stunt ensemble nomination, neither of the duo were nominated.
“Roma.” Director Alfonso Cuarón’s awards-contending drama that follows a live-in housekeeper (first-time actress Yalitza Aparicio) hit a big hurdle after its cast was denied any nominations, notably best ensemble. The awards category has historically been a strong bellwether for Oscar best picture nominations.
Michelle Yeoh. The critically acclaimed summer hit with a history-making all-Asian cast nabbed an ensemble cast nomination. But Yeoh, who brought gravitas and awards speculation to the cast as the formidable Eleanor Young, did not receive a best supporting actress nomination. “Fresh Off the Boat” star Constance Wu was also overlooked for best actress.
The biggest Golden Globes snubs for 2019: Ryan Gosling, Viola Davis and ‘This Is Us’
“First Man.” Director Damien Chazelle’s drama centered on astronaut Neil Armstrong’s moon landing failed to secure a nomination, even with stars Ryan Gosling (as Armstrong) and Claire Foy (wife Janet Armstrong), and an ensemble including Jason Clarke and Kyle Chandler.
“Widows.” Steve McQueen’s heist drama features a slate full of powerful female performances, including Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez and Elizabeth Debicki as widows pulling off a final job left by their dead husbands. But even with the added Hollywood firepower of Liam Neeson, Robert Duvall, Colin Farrell and Daniel Kaluuya in the cast, “Widows” missed out on best ensemble. Davis, an Oscar winner, also missed out on best actress.
Sam Rockwell in “Vice.” Rockwell won SAG best supporting actor for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” on his way to an Oscar win and was part of the SAG Awards’ winning ensemble award in 2018. But after a Globe nomination last week, Rockwell was denied a supporting actor nomination for his short but memorable role as President George W. Bush in the political comedy.
“If Beale Street Could Talk.” Writer/director Barry Jenkins’ drama was soaring after three Golden Globe nominations last week, including best drama and best supporting actress for Regina King, and five Critics’ Choice nominations (including best picture and King’s supporting actress). But “Beale Street” was completely shut out at the SAGs.
Charlize Theron. The Oscar-winning actress put on 50 pounds to play a struggling mom, while reuniting with “Young Adult” director Jason Reitman and screenwriter Diablo Cody. After earning Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice nominations for best actress, Theron was denied by the Screen Actors Guild.
Meryl Streep. Streep is beloved by the Screen Actors Guild as the actress with the most film nominations (16). But her two supporting roles, as Donna in “Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again” and the whimsical Topsy in “Mary Poppins Returns,” were overlooked.
“The Good Place.” NBC’s afterlife comedy was recognized at the Emmys with three nominations, including for star Ted Danson, and with a two Golden Globe nominations last week (best comedy and for star Kristen Bell). But Bell and Danson were back in the bad place for SAGs, both missing out on nominations.
Hugh Jackman. The greatest showman and beloved actor was bypassed for his lead role in “The Front Runner,” the drama about 1988 Democratic candidate Gary Hart. Far from living up to the title, the drama was also passed over for Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice nominations.
