This morning in Hollywood the nominations for the 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards were announced, and Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s ‘Birdman’ lead the pack with four nominations - Best Ensemble, Best Actor (Michael Keaton), Best Supporting Actor (Edward Norton) and Best Supporting Actress (Emma Stone).
‘Boyhood’, ‘The Imitation Game’ and ‘The Theory Of Everything’ were next with three nominations. The biggest surprise inclusions were Robert Duvall for ‘The Judge’ and Jennifer Aniston for ‘Cake’. I was happy to see Jake Gyllenhaal get a nomination for his incredible transformation in ‘Nightcrawler’ and Wes Anderson’s ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ get a nod for Best Ensemble.
The most notable absentee was the Dr Martin Luther King Jr biopic ‘Selma’, it’s a powerful movie filled with strong actor performances, but unfortunately Paramount wasn’t able to get screeners to SAG members in time. And Channing Tatum missed out on an individual nomination for his work in ‘Foxcatcher’, but his co-stars Steve Carell and Mark Ruffalo picked up one each.
