2016 SAG nominations: who got nominated & who got snubbed?


The 2016 SAG Awards will be held on January 30th, weeks after the Golden Globes. But as the Oscar season is constantly being rejiggered, the SAG nominations announcement came today, one day before the Golden Globes announcement. And… well, there are some surprises and some snubs. No Jennifer Lawrence for Joy. No Mad Max: Fury Road for anything. No Charlotte Rampling. No Kristen Stewart, which makes me surprisingly sad. NO TOM HARDY for The Revenant or Legend. Straight Out of Compton got nominated for Best Ensemble?! So much love for Helen Mirren and Trumbo. Here are the big movie nominations:

Best Ensemble
Beasts of No Nation
The Big Short
Straight Out of Compton

Best Lead Actor
Bryan Cranston, Trumbo
Johnny Depp, Black Mass
Leonardo DiCaprio, The Revenant
Michael Fassbender, Steve Jobs
Eddie Redmayne, The Danish Girl

Best Lead Actress
Cate Blanchett, Carol
Brie Larson, Room
Helen Mirren, Woman in Gold
Saoirse Ronan, Brooklyn
Sarah Silverman, I Smile Back

Best Supporting Actor
Christian Bale, The Big Short
Idris Elba, Beasts of No Nation
Mark Rylance, Bridge of Spies
Michael Shannon, 99 Homes
Jacob Tremblay, Room

Best Supporting Actress
Rooney Mara, Carol
Rachel McAdams, Spotlight
Helen Mirren, Trumbo
Alicia Vikander, The Danish Girl
Kate Winslet, Steve Jobs

I saw Spotlight and Steve Jobs, and I kind of disagree with both Winslet and McAdams’ nominations. McAdams had a good role in a great movie, but she didn’t really stand out as giving a ballsy, amazing performance. Winslet in Steve Jobs was actually the worst part – her accent work was all over the place and she was BADLY miscast. I am excited to see the love for Idris Elba (yay!) and Eddie Redmayne. I kind of think it’s funny that The Revenant was snubbed for an ensemble award, and that only Leo got nominated, although I’m sure the film will be nominated thoroughly at the Globes.

As for the TV nominations, you can see the full list here – there are some new people, like Rami Malek and Ellie Kemper, but most of the nominations are the same as they’ve been for the past few years. Viola Davis, Peter Dinklage, Jon Hamm, Amy Poehler, etc.

    There are a lot of very tired choices here in the TV categories. Ugh.

    • Mia4s says:

      The TV nominations are beyond dull but I will say I don’t think there is a better nomination (and should win) then the stunt ensemble for Daredevil. They impressed me more than any film with 10x the budget this year.

      SAG hasn’t matched well with the Oscars recently. American Hustle won best ensemble and then didn’t win a single Oscar. Still interesting to see the front runners.

      • als says:

        I love Daredevil too. And Jessica Jones.
        But what do you mean by stunt ensemble? The stuntmen? If yes, then you are right, the fight scenes are awesome.

        And Winslet is probably very liked in those circles, you know, with her being classy and not ‘vulgar’.

      • Mia4s says:

        Yes the stunt “ensemble” recognizes all the stunt performers who work on a show. It’s an under appreciated field as they not only perform but also plan sequences and often train the actors to do as much as possible. I think it’s great that SAG includes them.

      • FLORC says:

        DD and JJ are on my “must binge watch the moment I have time” list.

        Winslet is adored within that Oscar circle. Her nomination weighs more to that imo. Like JLaw for American Hustle it’s more about how much they’re liked over the work they produce.

    • minx says:

      You’re right about that. I love Jane the Virgin and Last Man on Earth, and it’s the same old same old nominees.

  2. Lou says:

    Kstew was never up for this award. IFC are just sending out her screeners now. Golden Globes is a possibility for her.

    Shocked at Silverman, but thrilled!!

    • miki says:

      thank fack she’s not nominated! Hopefully not tomorrow either but she’s a big name and it’s all GG people want

    • sarah says:

      I’m really happy for Silverman! Her interview on npr a few months ago was AMAZING.
      Why is Straight Out of Compton’s nomination weird? It was an ensemble-film and surprised me with the level of acting quality with the whole cast.

  3. Jayna says:

    Jennifer looks stunning in that photo.

  4. Kaiser says:

    There were no noms for The Hateful Eight either, but that’s because screeners were only sent out this week, apparently.

    • taboo says:

      yes. i get screeners and i don’t have one for HE yet.
      also don’t have spotlight, but i saw it in the theatre. i think they are holding them to avoid piracy. it’s a tough call for smaller films who needs as many ticket sales as possible. on the flip side, the first one i got was straight out of compton… it was significantly earlier than the others. i think SOOC should have gotten more acting noms.
      the ensemble, without any supporting, is bullshit.

  5. kri says:

    No Tom Hardy?! WTF! Whatever SAG.

    • Tapioca says:

      Being Tom Hardy is probably reward enough.

      MM:FR was AWESOME, but like The Dark Knight will only have its legacy enhanced by the awards’ snubs.

      And J-Law will probably still get an Oscar nom, even if I still don’t get all the fuss over her playing dress-up in mummy’s clothes and pouting for Peeta…

      • Jbap says:

        Way more to Lawrence than that. What she did in Winter’s Bone, Hustle or SLP was hardily ‘dressing up in mummy’s clothes’. But doubt she’ll get any noms this year – 4 Oscar noms by 25 would be crazy, and excessive for anyone.

      • Tapioca says:

        @Jbap: In Winter’s Bone fair enough, she was playing age appropriate, but in AH she was woefully miscast and (IMO) didn’t have close to the acting chops necessary to bridge the obvious age gap to the character.

      • Jbap says:

        Well, we’ll disagree about that. She was playing a young wife in her early 20s, and I thought she did it with real fire and impact (as did most critics). In real life, the wife was older, while Amy Adams’s character was much younger – but Russell swapped their characters in the script. Lawrence was never supposed to be playing someone in her thirties in the film!

      • Zwella Ingrid says:

        @Tapioca, I agree. She was way too young for that part, and couldn’t compensate.

      • Grant says:

        I took more issue with her Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook. While not a bad performance, I thought it was just Jennifer playing angry, sassy Jennifer. If you’re going to award her for that performance, you’ve gotta give Jennifer Aniston some laurels for every role she’s ever played in a movie too.

    • Rose says:

      Yes WTF…. He’s such a gifted actor! He did deserve a nomination at least!

    • seesittellsit says:

      This . . . deserved BA nom for “Legend” and a BSA for “The Revenant”.

  6. Joss RED says:

    I’ve seen Clouds of Sils Maria and people (who’ve seen it) really think that KStew deservers any recognition – let alone an award – for it?

      • Joss RED says:

        All the scenes she was in made me cringe, especially the ones she’s acting opposite Julliette. It was all of the same: lip biting, eyes rolling, shrugging shoulders, you name it. I’d say she’s a little less bad in Still Alice, although her part is smaller she’s almost tolerable watching.

      • Lou says:


    • ell says:

      yeah, she was very good.

    • miki says:

      yes, they do!! OMG right? Most undeserving of praise because..she’s kstew once again! I REALLY don’t get it

      • Joss RED says:


        Thank you, my friend, I thought I was losing my mind! 😉

        Good enough for an award nomination? Any award I mean, but in this case, the SAGs, do people think that Kristen Stewart is as good – or on the same level – as Helen Mirren or Kate Winslet?

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Yeah. I don’t get it. KStew plays the same character in everything she does – herself! Another Nic Cage. At least Nic Cage shuts his mouth and doesn’t play ever single scene with his lips agape. God I hate that!

    • Tiny Martian says:

      I think she deserves recognition in the form of positive reviews, and she did receive those. But her performance really didn’t really make a strong impression on me other than that I thought it was good relative to anything else I’ve seen her in. I haven’t seen the other nominees’ movies, however, so really can’t compare! But would never think of her role in the same category as other roles I’ve seen by Mirren or Winslet (or Mara or Vikander, for that matter).

    • Div says:

      I don’t think anyone really expected her to compete in SAG or the Oscars but she won, was runner up, or was nominated for a couple of the big critics awards including NYFCC (which is sometimes a predictor) and won a Cesar. You don’t have to like her acting or her performance because different strokes for different folks, but she received fantastic reviews for that, Still Alice, and a few of her other indies so it shouldn’t be a surprise that other people thought she was good or might be a dark horse candidate for Clouds of Sils Maria even though it came out last spring.

      • Eru says:

        Oh God. Cesar is here again. I’m sure in 10 years Kristen fans will still bring it in comments to every article about her )))))

    • Eru says:

      Nope she doesnt. When I was teen I thought Backstreet Boys were the most talented musicians in the world and thought they should get Grammies and all other awards. Sadly people that gave awards – didnt saw what I saw )))))

      I’m sure Zac Efron fans think that he should get nominations for his every movie.

  7. Jellybean says:

    I am so pleased for Mark Rylance.

  8. taboo says:

    Joy’s release is timed for Oscar noms, not SAG.
    Pretty sure it was calculated to come this late.
    Everyone in the business knows that (aside from publicity) the GGs are a meaningless sham which can be bought.
    I think DOR and the producers were really shooting for the Oscars… hard.

  9. Sara says:

    Mad Max was the most memorable movie I saw this year. Deserves at least director awards.

  10. Down and Out says:

    DRIS. I’m psyched for Beasts of No Nation.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      Me too! I wondered if it would get any love from the film awards voters due to it’s unique distribution deal.

  11. CornyBlue says:

    No Carol for Best Ensemble.
    Spotlight probably emerges as the frontrunners then.
    Trumbo and The Big Short ??

  12. Original T.C. says:

    Yeah for Beasts of No Nation and Alicia Vikander.

  13. Minxx says:

    I think that Oscar noms will look different. Rampling and JLaw will not be snubbed. Same for Tom Hardy.

  14. Snazzy says:

    Yay for Rami Malek and Mr Robot!! I love that show !!

    • pru says:

      So happy for him. He is really fantastic!!

    • dante says:

      I am so thrilled to see Rami get a nod!!! I thought Mr. Robot was the most inventive, adventurous show I’d seen in years, and without Malek it probably just doesn’t come close to happening. I love it when justice is served. And my goodness…. look at the company he’s in!!!!!!!!! Just fantastic.

  15. AJ says:

    I’ve heard that Cranston is the weakest part of Trumbo. Anyone know?

    I agree that Winslet was meh in SJ, but I think McAdams was good enough in Spotlight but Michael Keaton and Mark Ruffalo should be the real contenders for that film.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      It is a heavily mannered performance. A bit hammy at times.

    • Addison says:

      I think Winslet was pretty good but I am very dissapointed Jeff Daniels was left out. The exchanges between him and Michael Fassbender were amazing. Especially the second act. WOW! Was my thought so dissapointed he was not chosen.

      • AJ says:

        Omg I know!! That whole fight sequence between Daniels and Fassbender was just a fucking knock out. It’s worth seeing the movie for that part alone imo. Super outstanding work by the both of them. (I thought Keaton and Ruffalo’s fight in Spotlight was terrific too, even if it doesn’t quite reach the high bar set by Fassy and Daniels.)

    • NUTBALLS says:

      I wonder if Keaton and Ruffalo split enough votes that neither received a supporting actor nom. Glad to see the cast was recognized as a whole. There’s wasn’t a weak performance among them.

      • Bridget says:

        I’ve seen it suggested that Keaton should bump up to Best Actor since it’s such a weak year, and that it would also give more room for Ruffalo.

      • NUTBALLS says:

        I would be all for this as I’d love to see both men be recognized. But I doubt either of them could beat Leo with the praise he’s getting for his role in The Revenant. Probably putting them both in supporting makes the changes stronger that one of them would win in that category at least.

      • Bridget says:

        I’ve seen mixed reviews for The Revenant (technically well done, but the content itself is ‘meh’). I think if someone actually tried to go for it, Leo is beatable. And I’ve said this befoe: I think Leo will have a hard time glad – handing and trying to charm voters (he’s not exactly going to look good in contrast with Redmayne) and his campaign doesn’t seem to have much beyond “this was really miserable to make”

      • FLORC says:

        He got his nom for best male lead. Now the show really begins! He’s been so unliked in that crowd. And you just know post awards we’ll get him in a long towel tied up to his moobs with a dozen models on a yacht.

        Agree Bridget. I’ve heard the film is depressing, drawn out, and dreary. Hell to film, but content is slow and a bore. The way it’s been descibed is like a film called Valhalla Rising (I think) where it’s singular and immersive. The actors and crew have few comforts and that translates into what you see onscreen as more genuine. It also relies too much on a void of anything. Just wandering without purpose.

      • Bridget says:

        That George Clooney story about playing basketball with Leo and his posse is still a favorite of mine!

        Leo’s going to have an uphill battle if both Cranston and Redmayne end up nominated and on the circuit, because those are two men that can really work a room. He’s going to look like a douche in comparison.

      • Pondering thoughts says:

        The Revenant is actually told more in pictures than in words. Though it requires education to get that. And a huge cinema screen 😉

    • Nic919 says:

      I saw Trumbo and Cranston is the best part of it. The overall tone of the movie is a bit mixed and preachy though. Louis CK is also good in this.

  16. Lizzie McGuire says:

    I love that Beasts of no nation is getting some awards love because it’s really good & I’m going to admit that I cried…a lot which hasn’t happened since the Lion King.
    As for Leo & Johnny Depp being nominated yawn don’t care. I know they’re behind the scenes acting like Kim K acts around Anna Wintour trying so hard to get some buzz for awards but at least in Depp’s case I don’t think he deserves the nomination. I’ll wait to watch the Revenant & see if it’s worth his nomination.

    • Barb says:

      Have you actually seen Johnny Depp’s excellent performance in Black Mass? He is very much deserving of the nomination. Why did you single him (and Leo) out if you don’t care?

      • Rose says:

        What about Tom Hardy in Legend. An outstanding performance of both twins ! WTF! And his part in the Revenant???

      • FLORC says:

        I did not like his performance in Black Mass. It was good, but not to match the hype. I missed where he was excellent. He was just not the living man. He was Depp playing someone who has Depp’s mannerisms.

        It’s a general overview and not coming to a thread only about depp to say they don’t care for depp. And I think they’re speaking of the performance which is valid here and not the man. The whole comment is an overview and opinion on what info we have to read.
        They also mentioned Leo and BONN so Depp is hardly the only point mentions.

      • Barb says:

        @FLORC Well, I did not miss where he was excellent and neither did the critics and awards voters who are nominating him. He made acting choices that he’s never made before, and it was unlike anything he’s ever done. His Whitey mannerisms could not be further from his real mannerisms.

        I don’t think they’re speaking of the performance when they say “they’re behind the scenes acting like Kim K acts around Anna Wintour trying so hard to get some buzz for awards.”

        Johnny and Leo are not the only nominees in the male category, you don’t have to care about them being nominated, but it still doesn’t mean they’re undeserving when there’s weaker nominees.

      • Lizzie McGuire says:

        I’m sorry if you were offended by my opinion on Depp, I’ve seen Black Mass & I saw Johnny Depp being Johnny Depp. There’s other nominees who deserve that spot that’s my opinion.

        As for the Kim K comment, well I stand by it because he has been doing just that. He said in an interview he didn’t care about winning an award at all, yet he has been meeting with whoever can get him a nomination or a win. That comes from an editor from Variety who said it, not me.

      • Barb says:

        @Lizzie McGuire It’s funny that he was “being Johnny Depp” when he’s nothing like that in real life and other movies..

        He’s obliged by the studio to campaign (the producers said this in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter), it’s what’s best for the movie and not just for his own gain (like DiCaprio and others), that’s what the Variety editor said.

        You make it sound like is hustling hard like Will Smith and doing all the round table interviews and stuff. He jokingly said he doesn’t want to win an Oscar so he won’t have to give a speech, but he said he appreciates being nominated so it’s not hypocritical on his part at all.

        He never trashed the Oscars like Joaquin Phoniex.

    • Kitty says:

      Depp’s performance actually got better reviews than some of the ones in his category. He is hardly the weakest contender.

      • Naya says:

        Really? I just want Leo to have another near Oscar miss (because I’m mean I guess). I could really get behind a Depp win just based on his early work but it helps if his performance in Black Mass is solid too.

      • Korra says:

        I want Leo to lose for this to just to see his face. It’s cruel but the hilarity.

      • Kitty says:

        @Naya Depp is Oscar-worthy in Black Mass, a win would be well-deserved.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Depp’s performance very much deserves recognition. It is a return to form and a very powerful, menacing portrayal of an evil man

    • FLORC says:

      I just don’t share your opinion on this. And o was very aware watching Depp playing a character from many things he did. I didn’t believe it for a little over half of the screen time.

  17. Jbap says:

    J-Law unlikely to feature much in awards season this year, alas. Joy is getting some very bad reviews (along with the odd thumbs up). Her performance is being praised highly, but a failed film drags down everyone with it – and given all that she has won already at 25, I doubt if anyone is rushing to give her more awards at this stage.

    • Lou says:

      If Jennifer was wise she would be relieved that she’s not in the mix. It’s just too much, too soon/

    • NUTBALLS says:

      I really hope they don’t waste a nom on JLaw when there are so many more deserving women this awards season.

  18. K says:

    Thrilled for Idris and the beast of no nation cast. Also thrilled Lawrence didn’t get nominated, sorry find her endlessly overrated!

    Tv is a mess! I mean for the love of God really? They aren’t even watching because they missed a lot of great performances and it’s a shame. Where was nomination for actors/shoes Mindy Project, Blackish, Master of None? All these shows are pushing boundaries this season with topics of feminism, race and family. Also just because it’s a fantastic show Brooklyn 99? Seriously at least Andrea Baugher (yes I know I butchered spelling his last name).

    Sorry the movies are fine, don’t really care but TV missed a lot of great stuff. I mean I know there is a lot of tv but this is just sad.

    • K says:

      Comment won’t let me edit so wanted to add to my tv comment on the drama front I just realized The Leftovers and none of its cast is nominated! Isn’t this the best drama since breaking bad? How isn’t anyone nominated? Makes no sense? Where is Fargo? I mean even the Americans is suppose to be brilliant this season.

    • Marty says:

      Blackish is a seriously underrated show and the amazing thing is every single main character on that show is hilarious in their own right.

      • K says:

        It is, I didn’t think I would like it because I don’t find Anthony Anderson that funny but my goodness that is a smart, funny show that challenges its audience without talking down to it.

        And I’m sorry but the kids on it are hilarious!

      • Sarah01 says:

        It is our favourite family show – agree it is seriously underrated.

  19. dana says:

    Only surprise for me is Trumbo stood out and i’m glad. Great film. Everything else I think is right.

  20. Nev says:

    Robin Wright!!!! So intense this season on House of Cards.

  21. Colette says:

    Congrats to Brad ,DeDe,Jeremy and everyone at Plan B for the noms for The Big Short

  22. Farhi says:

    Straight out of Compton, really?

    Happy for Rylance for the “Bridge of Spies”.
    Not much for “Revenant”, other than Leo, but OK I guess. There should be more in technical categories come Oscars.
    Supporting actress is all over the places but I am happy about Vilkander and Mara.
    I saw some parts from the “Spotlight”, the acting looked great.

    • Breakfast Margaritas says:

      What do people have against Straight Outta Compton? It dominated the box office for a while and told a gritty tale about the rise of not only a musical group but an entire genre. What makes anything Jlaw or Johnny Depp has done more legitimate than that? Straight Outta Comptn is a gritty American saga.

      • Marianne says:

        Straight Outta Compton also got a lot of really good reviews as well.

        I didnt see it because Im not into rap music, but from what I’ve heard it, the film deserves it.

      • Dania says:

        What makes anything Johnny Depp has done more legitimate than that? Well, he got rave reviews and his movie, which told a gritty tale about the rise and fall of Boston’s most wanted gangster, did well at the box office.

  23. Insomniac says:

    Gah! Nothing for “Fargo!?” Boo hiss.

    I have never even heard of the movie Sarah Silverman is in, much less that she could be an awards contender. Good for her.

    • lucy2 says:

      I’m stunned Fargo didn’t get anything. Incredible show and all the performances were great.

      The TV awards are pretty much the usual. There’s some great ones I’ll be rooting for, but for the most part, very predictable.

    • Esmom says:

      I didn’t see the Sarah Silverman movie but I heard a radio interview with her recently where she talked about it. It’s a dramatic role, she plays a woman struggling with depression. I wasn’t really a fan of hers but I really liked the interview, it was very candid and thoughtful and I thought she was smart and engaging.

    • isabelle says:

      Hands down best show this year, best show since Breaking Bad. Every single actor is perfect and it deserves every award available to them. Bokeem Woodbine & Kristen Dunst are the big standouts. Each episode is better than the next. What the heck has the guild been watching to overlook Fargo?

  24. anniefannie says:

    I can’t stand his politics or really anything about him but Voight deserves a nom for Ray Donovan.

  25. Norman Bates's Mother says:

    What happened to Jake Gyllenhaal? At th beginning of the year he was mentioned in every predictions list. He had two perfectly oscar-baity roles – a tragic climber, and a widowed boxer, he got rave reviews for his performance in Southpaw (the movie was mediocre but he was excellent) and then he vanished. No interviews, no campaign, no pap pictures, nothing. I still like Depp, but in my opinion Gyllenhaal deserves his spot.

    And Mad Max should have been nominated for something. I usually don’t like this kind of movies, I’m not a fan of Charlize, but it was a wonderfully directed strong piece of cinema with a great acting on her part.

    • Kitty says:

      He was just an early contender. He didn’t get nominated for anything prior to the SAG awards so it’s not surprising. Depp’s reviews are much better.

    • Bridget says:

      Not enough people saw Southpaw, and it was released too early for it to get traction based solely on reviews. They needed it to be a popular hit for it to translate into a nomination for Gyllenhaal.

    • Eru says:

      Thats the thing with awards season. Every year famous actors do depressing small budget indie movies in hope to get awards buzz and nominations. Some do it because no one gives them lead roles in big movies. And that the only roles they can score. But there will be 70 indie movies and only 5 will get nominations.

      Sometimes its like lottery for actors. Some will get lucky ticket and get into awards season. Someone’s performance will go unnoticed or buzz will die pretty fast. Thats what happened to Jake. But Sarah Silverman,Brie Larson, Michael Shannon, Idris Elba and Saoirse Ronan got lucky ticket. Thats how it goes every year.

  26. IKnowwhatboyslike says:

    You guys are right, the television category was boring and old. No nominations for The Affair???? Maura Tierney has been tearing it up in that show. Such bull.

  27. tacos and tv says:

    I know this may sound harsh, but I am relieved that Jennifer Lawrence was not nominated. I don’t know. I’m so so tired of her. And I really am a little frustrated she was chosen for that role when we have women who I believe would be better suited. But of course she will sell tix and I get that’s what movies are about these days.. the return.

    • K says:

      Not harsh the character in joy is supposed to be 40s! They should have casted and actress in her 40s, plenty of them would have opened a movie just as well as Lawrence.

      • Jbap says:

        But I gather Joy focuses on the lead character when she’s in her 20s, in her struggling years so to speak: Lawrence apparently only ages up for the final ten minutes. Therefore, it would make no sense to cast someone in their 40s: they’d have to spend 90% of the film aged down to their early 20s!

      • Cynthia says:

        Agreed. BTW I shop on HSN all the time, so am familiar with the Joy lady. There is no Jlaw can do that character justice.

      • CornyBlue says:

        What makes me mad is that they did not HAVE to make her character in her 20s when her triumphs came later in life. People are so obsessed with the ‘wunderkid’ phenomenon it make my skin crawl. Let us not pretend it was aged down so that JL could specifically play this role.

      • kate says:

        Why do people keep saying this? She is playing a woman who was already a success story by her mid-thirties, and if you’ve seen or heard anything about the film, you know it’s about the journey to that success. It’s not 2 hour recreation of a 40-something Joy shilling her products on TV.

        JLaw is exactly the right age for the vast majority of the film. She plays younger than she is for more than she plays older than she is.

      • Grace says:

        JLaw is 40 only for one scene (5 minutes) in the movie

  28. Korra says:

    Lol! I love this. It’s the most unpredictable year I’ve seen so far for movies. I’m in utter agreement that the tv awards are boring.TV’s the most fun it’s been in years and no Brooklyn Nine-nine or Last man on earth?

    • twodollars says:

      Oh, yeah. I forgot about Brooklyn 9-9. Andre Braugher should have at least been nominated. I would have nominated the actress who plays Amy Sanitago as well. She is hysterical in that role.

    I’m happy about Sarah Silverman. The movie sucked but she was terrific in it.

  30. hahahahahahaha says:

    Only 6 actresses out of 38 actors in the ensambles. They should be ashamed.

  31. Chinoiserie says:

    How did Nicole Kidman get a non for Grace of Monaco?

    • Virgilia Coriolanus says:

      My exact thoughts. I saw it. I could see why they thought it was going to be an Oscar biopic….the themes were quite interesting….but it was just a mess, and I FINALLY saw Nicole’s Botox face. I didn’t get it before, but now I do. Pictures do not do it justice.

    • Twink says:

      Her performance was amazing, as usual, most of the problems were with the script.

  32. Rhiley says:

    Helen Mirren for Woman in Gold is a no. It was a fine movie and she gave a fine performance, but I don’t think it was worthy of a nomination for anything.

    • twodollars says:

      I thought that was one of her best performances in years. I actually liked it more than The Queen.

    • Div says:

      That particular nomination and Sarah Silverman over Charlotte Rampling and Carey Mulligan is just really…annoying. Helen is a goddess, don’t get me wrong, but that in itself speaks to how much campaigning plays a part since it’s a film that at best received mixed reviews and she’s received nowhere near the critical acclaim for her role in Women in Gold as Charlotte did in 45 Years.

  33. Rhochelle says:

    What no noms for FARGO !? I love that show! Kirsten Dunst is the best !

    • clarencebeeks says:

      It is still on, not eligible yet. Next year the ensemble will sweep!

      • Rhochelle says:

        Oh… I’m dumb :/

      • clarencebeeks says:

        Rhochelle, no you are not. I think many people are forgetting that there are deadlines for these awards, and that their fave show may not have made the cut. 🙂

        I live for Fargo, and The Affair. The only two shows I care about on tv!

  34. twodollars says:

    So, many white people in these nominations and a large portion of them completely unremarkable in their roles.

    Who should have been included at minimum:

    Michael B. Jordan in Creed
    Jessica Wu from Fresh Off The Boat
    Anthony Anderson and Tracy Ross from Blackish
    Gina Rodriguez from Jane the Virgin

    But, the bar is a lot lower for white actors than it is for minorities.

    I am happy about Julia Louis-Dreyfuss in Veep and Helen Mirren in Woman in Gold though.

    • Div says:

      Really annoyed that Creed is getting completely shut out.

    • AJ says:

      Agree about Creed and MBJ. I wouldn’t even be mad about a Stallone nom. Everyone did good work on that movie.

    • K says:

      Always mad about my Michael B not being up but let’s be real the year he was really screwed over was when he didn’t sweet every award for fruitvale. He was beyond phenomenonal. He deserves it again for creed but this isn’t the injustice that Fruitvale was.

      Sorry just still mad he doesn’t have an Oscar, Golden Globe and SAG for Fruitvale Station.

      The TV actor/actresses pretty weak to, tv is getting better about diversity (long way to go) and the performances are stellar but this is the nomination list.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      Jessica Wu kills me.

      • twodollars says:

        She is one of the funniest actresses on TV right now. Damn shame she didn’t get a nomination.

  35. Div says:

    I love Sarah Silverman but it’s kind of a joke she got a nomination over Charlotte Rampling in the lead actress category. Charlotte won the Silver Bear and has garnered a ton of critical buzz and some critics awards. IFC is notorious for not campaigning and not getting out screeners until it’s very late though but I thought the fact that she is Charlotte effing Rampling still would have played a part. Kind of drives it home that campaigning plays a part. Also very disappointed that MBJ, Sylvester Stallone, and Ryan Coogler got zip for Creed…especially since this is a pretty mayo list. Not surprised that Kristen missed out because it’s also an IFC film and she had less of a chance than Charlotte despite winning the NYFCC…although she may have a chance with the GG. Shocked that Tom Hardy missed out as he’s been making all the prediction lists.

  36. karen says:

    Ughhhh, makes me mad that Michael Keaton was overlooked for Spotlight, while Rachel McAdams got a nom. BOO.

  37. dee says:

    This awards season is going to be so boring. Yawning already

  38. Merritt says:

    I would love if Bryan Cranston won the best actor category. Mainly because I just can’t with DiCaprio.

    • Pondering thoughts says:

      DiCaprio seems to rub many people the wrong way?

    • AtlLady says:

      Leo doesn’t do anything for me either. Never has and never will. Even in his most dramatic roles, I always think that if you poked him in the belly with your finger that he would giggle like the Pillsbury Dough Boy. Most of his performances leave me wondering what folks see in him. To me, even his looks are bland and pudgy. In another 20 years, he is going to be Orson Welles – fat, heavily bearded, and doing wine commercials. He started out strong with a supporting role in Gilbert Grape but I find myself more interested in his co-stars. The best thing about The Beach was my introduction to the amazing Tilda Swinton. I will be strangely satisfied if Leo never wins an Oscar, even an honorary one.

  39. Milla B. says:

    Michael Fassbender for Steve Jobs and Eddie Redmayne for The Danish Girl…. I can’t. Sorry, It is so ridiculous.

  40. Eru says:

    Thank God no Kristen Stewart. For e second I was afraid they’ll might nominate her. Since critics were throwing her into awards season so hard in the last two weeks. Now lets wait for Golden Globes list. They like to nominate out of nowhere mediocre performances, like Tourist.

    Happy for Rami Malek, Fassbender. Let Rachel McAdams have it. She is always “there”, we know and love her. But she is rarely major breakout Star in her movies. Like she was in Mean Girls. At least she’ll have nomination.

  41. Madpoe says:

    WHAT?!?! The bear from “The Revenant” wasn’t nominated for Best “Stay the Fudge Outta My Woods Beyotch!” INSANITY!

    WTF SAG?! VIKINGS!!!!!! RAGNAR LOTHBROK! TRAVIS FIMMEL! They’re not getting the History channel or something in their cable line-up?!?

  42. Dangles says:

    The only thing that’ll stop Leo this awards season is hubris. Take a measured approach, Leo, it’s yours to lose.

  43. Capture says:

    Kate Winslet has been overrated, full stop. I thought that about Julia Roberts until I saw her recently in Secret in Their Eyes though. But I don’t think my views will change about Kate. She’s just not that good of an actor. I’m very happy Leo’s nominated. Give him the Oscar already. Mark Rylance was good but over hyped in the overhyped Bridge of Spies.

  44. Marianne says:

    Im guessing Joy didnt make the deadline.

  45. Sarah01 says:

    I want Beast of no Nation to win whatever they are nominated in. It was exceptional – without being unnecessarily gratuitous and vulgar.

  46. serena says:

    Yay Trumbo got nominated! This makes me happy!

  47. Dania says:

    Happy about Johnny Depp’s well-deserved nomination!
