The Screen Actors Guild isn’t usually known for big surprises, mainly because the Academy takes SAG very seriously when it comes to its acting nominations. Still, some of this year’s SAG Award nominations are pretty surprising. Everything Everywhere All at Once and The Banshees of Inisherin lead the dance with 5 nominations, also making them two of the top five most nominated films ever.
The most important prize for the SAGs is the ‘ensemble’ prize: the prize for the best cast. There something special happened: besides Banshees, EEAAO and The Fabelmans are also nominated for two films that haven’t been nominated at all: Babylon and Women Talking.
We’ve got some serious star power in the running for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture this year! 🌟 Congratulations to Babylon, @Banshees_Movie, @allatoncemovie, @fabelmans Y @women_talking #sagapremios pic.twitter.com/YgO5fq5viH

With the lead roles, the first four names don’t really surprise. It’s mostly about the fifth name: Adam Sandler, who’s been nominated for his role in Hustle. However, the battle for the statue will be between Austin Butler, Brendan Fraser and Colin Farrell.
In supporting roles, there are also four names that we come across often. However, we also see a surprising snub: Brad Pitt is not nominated, Paul Dano’s performance in fabelmans is enough for the nomination. Ke Huy Quan, who also won the Golden Globe, is expected to win it as well.
We see a notable absence in the best actress: Michelle Williams (fabelmans) was not nominated. Who’s been nominated: Ana de Armas, who kept things busy with her acting performance in the movie Blonde. According to the Screen Actors Guild, she was enough for a nomination. Danielle Deadwyler is also nominated for Till.
We also see a conspicuous presence in best supporting actress: Hong Chau is the second nomination for the film The Whale. Stephanie Hsu is also in favor EEAAAA nominated, alongside Jamie Lee Curtis for the same film.
