“The Banshees of Inisherin” and “Everything Everywhere All at Once” are expected to lead the film field in the upcoming Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations with five each. On the television side, HBO’s “The White Lotus,” after moving to the drama category from the limits of the guild, is expected to lead the charge with four names.
With five nominations, “Banshees” and “Everything” will tie the record for the most SAG nominations in history. They will join John Madden’s “Shakespeare in Love” (1998) and Rob Marshall’s “Chicago” (2002), both SAG and Oscar winners for best picture, and the “Doubt” by John Patrick Shanley (2008), who lost to “Slumdog Millionaire.”
If their predictions are correct, the four main actors — Colin Farrell, Brendan Gleeson, Barry Keoghan and Kerry Condon — are tipped to earn mentions in addition to the guild’s top award for an ensemble cast. story by Irishman Martin McDonagh.
There is a slight variation on the name for the Daniels family multiverse flick. With ensemble nods, actors Michelle Yeoh, Ke Huy Quan and Jamie Lee Curtis were among the top five in their respective categories. It’s also hard to imagine women’s unions going through the motion pictures in the film. If the film manages to pull in supporting actress Stephanie Hsu, along with the expected five nods, it will set a new record for SAG nods.
As with any appointment announcement, of course there will be surprises.
After a disappointing BAFTA performance, the SAG nomination is a real test for Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” ahead of the Oscar voting, which will begin on Thursday, January 12. However, it should still bite Michelle Williams for the best actress and possibly veteran Judd Hirsch in the supporting actor of the guild.
Other predictions include Paul Mescal’s “Aftersun,” from the Critics’ Choice and BAFTA longlist, and a potential closing for Sarah’s “Women Talking.” Polley (I pray this one is wrong). Regarding the continuation of “Top Gun: Maverick” by Joseph Kosinski, it seems that there is no meaning for the series, but Tom Cruise was able to confirm himself as the fifth man in the category of the best actor .
On television, HBO may dominate with “Dragon House” and “The White Lotus” in drama and “Barry” in comedy. I predict there will be a shortage for “Hacks” in ensemble comedy, but fear not, Jean Smart should always be there.
