Here is the complete list of nominees.
The SAG Awards, I feel, are more representative of the Academy Awards than the Golden Globes Awards. Mostly because the major awards are not split between the genres. The actors nominated for SAG Awards will most likely be nominated an Oscar.
It’s interesting that big names such as Beyonce (Dreamgirls), Brad Pitt (Babel) and Jack Nicholson (The Departed) were passed over for nominations. I don’t expect Beyonce or Brad Pitt to be nominated for Oscars, but I definitely think Nicholson will be.
Aside from Nicholson not being nominated, I really have no problems with any of the SAG nominations. There seem to be no other major snubs and no major surprises either.
But maybe you see things a bit differently. So feel free to let me know.
