With the Critics’ Choice Awards postponed and the Golden Globes reduced to one social media event, will the Screen Actors Guild Awards bring this calm awards season to life?
The answer will start to become evident when the nominations are unveiled this morning. These are the awards given by the Hollywood Actors Guild SAG-AFTRA, and they have some predictive value for the Oscars, as actors are the biggest branch of the academy as well.
Keep an eye out for “The Power of the Dog” and “West Side Story,” which made strides at the Globes and could be in the running for an outstanding cast, the equivalent of SAG’s Best Picture. Winners of this SAG category often, but not always, win the academy’s top prize. Other Globe winners who could be nominated today by their peers include Will Smith (“King Richard”) and Nicole Kidman (“Being the Ricardos”).
Rosario Dawson and Vanessa Hudgens will announce the nominations at 10 a.m. Eastern Time, 7 a.m. Pacific Time. You can watch on Instagram Live.
