Awards Season 2017: SAG Awards Nominations

More awards shenanigans with today's announcement of the nominations for the 23rd Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards. These are for actors voted on by actors (so are usually a pretty good barometer for the Oscar acting awards as there's a lot of crossover between AMPAS and SAG memberships).

Below is a list of film nominations:

Outstanding Performance By A Cast In A Motion Picture
Captain Fantastic
Hidden Figures
Manchester By The Sea

Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Leading Role
Casey Affleck (Manchester By The Sea)
Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge)
Ryan Gosling (La La Land)
Viggo Mortensen (Captain Fantastic)
Denzel Washington (Fences)

Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Leading Role
Amy Adams (Arrival)
Emily Blunt (The Girl On The Train)
Natalie Portman (Jackie)
Emma Stone (La La Land)
Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins)

Outstanding Performance By A Male Actor In A Supporting Role
Mahershala Ali (Moonlight)
Jeff Bridges (Hell Or High Water)
Hugh Grant (Florence Foster Jenkins)
Lucas Hedges (Manchester By The Sea)
Dev Patel (Lion)

Outstanding Performance By A Female Actor In A Supporting Role
Viola Davis (Fences)
Nicole Kidman (Lion)
Naomie Harris (Moonlight)
Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures)
Michelle Williams (Manchester By The Sea)

A lot of the same names cropping up again, which is no surprise. I'm actually quite pleased at Meryl Streep's inclusion as I thoroughly enjoyed Florence Foster Jenkins in general (and her performance in particular). Manchester By The Sea gets four nods, with Moonlight and Fences with three.

For those of you who aren't fans of the awards season stuff, you'll be pleased to know we take a brief hiatus from it now until the new year with the nominations for the Writers' Guild Awards announced on 4th January with the Golden Globes handed out on January 8th.
