Nominees for the 28th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards® for the past year were announced this morning by Rosario Dawson and Vanessa Hudgens via SAG’s Instagram Live account. The nominees for outstanding action performances by film and television stunt ensembles were announced by SAG Awards Committee Members Jason George and Elizabeth McLaughlin with an introduction by SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher.

Ridley Scott’s “House of Gucci” and Jane Campion’s “Power of the Dog” both received the most nods with three nominations each. However, “Power of the Dog” was not included in the race for the prestigious best performance by a cast in a motion picture. The nominees for that category include “Belfast,” “House of Gucci,” “CODA,” “Don’t Look Up,” and “King Richard.”

On the television side, “Succession” and “Ted Lasso” received five nominations each. Coming in close with four nominations were “Mare of Easttown,” “The Morning Show,” and one of the most talked about series from the past year, “Squid Game.”

“The Great,” “Hacks,” “The Kominsky Method,” “Only Murders in the Building,” and “Ted Lasso” have something to smile about, as they entered the contest for the best ensemble in a comedy series.

The best ensemble in a drama series includes “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “The Morning Show,” “Succession,” “Squid Game,” and, for the first time since its premiere, “Yellowstone.”

The SAG Awards celebrates the outstanding motion picture and television performances from the previous calendar year (SAG Awards Eligibility Period: March 1 – December 31, 2021). Of the top industry honors presented to actors, the SAG Awards are selected entirely by peers in SAG-AFTRA from a pool of 124,000 eligible voters.

After downsizing the celebration and going virtual last year due to COVID-19, the show will be returning to an in-person event at the Santa Monica Barker Hangar and will follow COVID safety protocols. The show will simulcast live on Feb. 27 on TNT and TBS on at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT.
