In nominations to its 29th annual awards, the Screen Actors Guild heaped honors on the casts of the anarchic indie hit Everything Everywhere All at Once and the Irish tragicomedy The Banshees of Inisherin, while throwing some curve balls into the Oscar race.
The awards contenders, voted on by the Hollywood actors’ guild SAG-AFTRA, were announced Wednesday on Instagram Live by Haley Lu Richardson (The White Lotus) and Ashley Park (Emily in Paris). The nominees for the guild’s top award, best ensemble, are: Babylon, The Banshees of Inisherin, Everything Everywhere All at Once,” The Fabelmans and Women Talking.
The SAG Awards are considered one of the most reliable Oscar bellwethers. Seldom does a movie or performance not nominated by the screen actors end up winning at the Academy Awards. Actors make up the biggest percentage of the film academy, so their choices have the largest sway.
