The nominations for the 26th Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced this Wednesday, and with them, awards season is coming into sharper focus.

Once America Ferrera and Danai Gurira read the full list, the big winners on the film side were Once Upon A Time In HollywoodBombshell, and The Irishman, with four nominations each. Bombshell pulled off a particular feat, with each of its main three stars – Charlize Theron, Margot Robbie, and Nicole Kidman – nominated; The Irishman was not able to pull off the same trifecta, with Robert De Niro snubbed, as he was in the Golden Globe nominations, while Al Pacino and Joe Pesci earned nods for their supporting roles. (De Niro can content himself with being selected for the Lifetime Achievement Award.)

Also notable on the film side: the lack of nominations for indie films. While Parasite became only the second foreign-language film to earn a nomination for its ensemble in the Outstanding Cast category, movies like Uncut Gems and The Farewell were ignored, with Adam Sandler and Awkwafina particularly conspicuous absences. Also surprising: Zero love for heavily favored awards contenders 1917 and Little Women, the latter of which was expected to put a dent in the lead and supporting actress categories.

Reason to be nervous for some? Perhaps. The Screen Actors Guild represents a large chunk of the body that votes for the Academy Awards. But, as we saw last year when Regina King missed a SAG nom but went on to win an Oscar, the SAG awards are not always an essential stepping stone to Oscar glory.

On the TV side, Game of Thrones is getting more love from the Screen Actors Guild than it did from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, nabbing noms for ensemble, stunt work, and for Peter Dinklage. The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel received the most nominations, with four, while The Morning Show showed itself to be an awards player, picking up noms for Jennifer Aniston, Billy Crudup, and Steve Carrell.

The winners will be revealed in a ceremony airing live on TNT and TBS, Sunday, January 19, 2020 at 8 p.m. Eastern/5 p.m. Pacific. Read on for the full list of nominees.
