27th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

The nominations for the 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced by Lily Collins (Golden Globe-nominated for “Emily in Paris”) and Daveed Diggs (“Snowpiercer”).

Diggs had a moment of delighted surprise when his co-host announced he had been nominated for the award for an actor in a limited series or television movie for “Hamilton” (sadly, he was unable to reciprocate the laurels for Collins, as her show “Emily in Paris” was shut out in the nominations, as was her film “Mank” — except for lead Gary Oldman — in one of the bigger snubs and surprises of the morning). Diggs’ was the only nod for “Hamilton,” though his fellow Tony winner for the Broadway version, Leslie Odom Jr., did receive a SAG nomination for his supporting work in “One Night in Miami.”

Leading the film entries with three apiece were “Ma Rainey” (adding one for lead actress Viola Davis) and “Minari,” which picked up honours for lead actor Steven Yeun (“Walking Dead” fans can celebrate what is apparently the first major acting nomination to go to one of the show’s alumni after leaving it) and supporting actress Youn Yuh-Jung. “Trial of the Chicago 7″ and “Da 5 Bloods” also collected three, including stunt ensemble honours. Interestingly, neither “Tenet” nor “Birds of Prey” made the cut in the stunt category.

In television, “The Crown” and “Schitt’s Creek” both cleaned up with five nominations, while “Ozark” received four. The three nods for “Dead to Me” include both lead actresses (Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini). The five nominees for female actor in a drama all come from either “Ozark” or “The Crown.”

Among newer shows, “Ted Lasso” received nods for comedy ensemble and lead Jason Sudeikis, and “Bridgerton” rode its runaway recent popularity to two, for drama ensemble and lead Regé-Jean Page (start swooning now). “The Queen’s Gambit” scored for lead Anya Taylor-Joy and Bill Camp, though not for Marielle Heller’s memorable work as the protagonist’s adoptive mother.

SAG, however, did not repeat the Golden Globes’ shocking omission of Michaela Coel for “I May Destroy You” or the Emmys’ snub of Bob Odenkirk for “Better Call Saul” (which also got an ensemble nomination).

The 27th SAG Awards ceremony is scheduled to air Sunday, April 4, on TNT and TBS, with an encore to follow immediately on TNT. The show is to be reimagined as a one-hour special; no host has been announced.
