18 SAG Awards TV nominees we didn’t see coming: Julia Garner, John Krasinski, Penelope Cruz and more

When it comes to film, Gold Derby’s SAG Awards predictions were on point, correctly picking 20 out of 25 nominees across five categories (80%). When it comes to TV, though, the Screen Actors Guild proved to be a lot more elusive. We predicted eight categories, but our collective odds were only right about 22 out of 40 nominees (55%). So where did all those surprises come from? Well, Netflix mostly. Scroll down to see all 18 nominations that took us by surprise, and check out the complete list of nominees here.

We’ve known for a few years now that Netflix tends to have the inside track at these awards. Just look at all those recent victories for “Orange is the New Black,” “The Crown” and “Stranger Things.” But even when we know to expect a deluge of nominations for the streaming service, it can be difficult to know exactly where they’ll come from.

2019 SAG Awards Nominations Arrive

Joseph Baxter Dec 12, 2018

The Screen Actors Guild Award nominations for 2019 are here, touting major nods for Black Panther, Bohemian Rhapsody and more.

The 25th Screen Actors Guild Awards has released its list of nominees. The ceremony, often a prognosticative weather-vane for the shifting winds of the subsequent Academy Awards, appears to be throwing some major awards-season-uncharacteristic love to the comic book movie genre with Marvel’s Black Panther, and even comedy, with Crazy Rich Asians.

Of course, the expected favorites – like The Favourite – got on the board. Indeed, while Galileo was nowhere to be found, Bohemian Rhapsody struck like a thunderbolt of lightning, as did A Star is Born and Vice. Additionally, notable small-screen nods were dealt to Better Call Saul, Ozark, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Handmaid’s Tale, along with one last shot for departing Cold War drama The Americans.

Golden Globes 2019: TV Categories Broken Down With Projected Winners

  • Variety
Big name nominees dominate an increasingly competitive small screen landscape, and Variety analyzes what to expect when winners’ names are read at the Golden Globes Jan. 6.

Drama Series

In complete contrast to last year, all but one of the nominees in this category are newcomers. Up for its sixth and final season, FX’s Soviet spy series “The Americans” is the only veteran in the race. It is joined by Netflix’s political thriller “Bodyguard,” Amazon’s psychological thriller “Homecoming,” BBC America’s cat-and-mouse drama “Killing Eve” and FX’s ballroom culture period piece “Pose.” While waiting to nominate “The Americans” until the end of its run is certainly a statement, it feels like the one to beat here is actually “Homecoming,” given the HFPA’s past love, not only for leading lady Julia Roberts but also the streamer. However, given its global appeal, Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s “Killing Eve” could play spoiler.

Golden Globes: Amy Adams, Regina King Lead List of Crossover Nominees

Golden Globes: Amy Adams, Regina King Lead List of Crossover Nominees
In the age of peak TV, actors, writers, directors and producers, and subsequently their managers and agents, are open for business in any medium, and that new attitude shows in awards nominations, especially when it comes to the Golden Globe acting fields.

Amy Adams and Regina King scored nominations in both film and TV categories for the 2019 awards, while many actors who normally work in film are now being feted for their TV roles.

The Golden Globes voters are proving to be platform-agnostic now, a relatively new trend that seems to have begun in earnest in 2014 when small-screen stars such as Idris Elba, who had earned plaudits from the Globes for Brit series “Luther,” easily jumped into the big-screen awards mix with “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.” From there, Steve Carell (known and perennially Globe-nominated for his work on NBC’s “The Office”) cracked the golden ceiling and grabbed a

‘Kominsky Method,’ ‘Barry,’ ‘The Americans,’ ‘Atlanta’ Crash SAG Awards’ TV Party
“Barry” and “The Kominsky Method” went all the way on their first SAG Awards ballot while “The Americans” joined the party at long last for its final season.

SAG Awards voters cemented Netflix’s “The Kominsky Method” as a kudos season contender with comedy actor noms for stars Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin, and a comedy ensemble nod. The series, created by comedy superproducer Chuck Lorre, revolves around an aging acting teacher, Sandy Kominsky (Douglas), and his friendship with his agent Norman (Arkin).

“Kominsky Method” and HBO’s “Barry” were the only freshman shows nominated in the comedy or drama ensemble category. The sixth and final season of FX’s “The Americans” grabbed its first-ever SAG Awards nom in any category, landing in the drama series ensemble race. FX’s “Atlanta” also earned its first SAG nom, for comedy ensemble.

What a difference a year makes. Wednesday morning’s announcement of the Screen Actors Guild Award TV nominees initially appeared to be a repeat of 2017 with Netflix dominating across the board.

‘Escape at Dannemora': Eric Lange on Why Lyle Mitchell Is the ‘Human Cost’ of the Story

‘Escape at Dannemora': Eric Lange on Why Lyle Mitchell Is the ‘Human Cost’ of the Story
Showtime’s limited series “Escape at Dannemora” focuses on real-life escaped convicts Richard Matt (Benicio del Toro) and David Sweat (Paul Dano) and the prison worker who aided their escape, Joyce “Tilly” Mitchell (Patricia Arquette). But when you have a pair of hardened criminals and the woman who is carrying on an affair with both of them, it’s hard to figure out who the viewers should be rooting for.

That’s where Lyle Mitchell, the unaware husband of Joyce, comes in. “He’s very much a sympathetic character in the show,” Eric Lange, who plays Lyle, tells TheWrap, describing him as the “human cost of this tabloid-sensationalized thing.”

Lyle was one of the people involved in the ordeal who the show’s producers never got to speak with, co-showrunners Brett Johnson and Michael Tolkin had previously told TheWrap. Which makes sense. After all, would you want to speak about

How the Golden Globes TV Battlefield Erupts as Contenders Aim for ‘Maisel’-Like Bump
While Oscar pundits were busy on Thursday morning dissecting what the Golden Globe nominations might mean for the Academy Awards, small screen execs were just as eager to see what might be the next show to get “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” bump.

“Maisel,” of course, is the critically acclaimed Amazon Studios series starring Rachel Brosnahan as a 1950s New York housewife who discovers her skill in standup comedy. The show’s first season debuted last year on November 29. Less than two weeks later, it had already been nominated in two key Globes categories: musical or comedy series and comedy actress (for Brosnahan).

Five weeks after that, “Maisel” surprised many by winning both categories — setting the show up for an Emmy campaign. “Maisel” went to win eight total Emmys — including top prizes for the show and its star.

“Something like ‘Maisel’ needed attention early on,” says one awards publicist who wished not to be named,
