2020 SAG Award Nominations: ‘Bombshell’ Gets a Boost Opposite ‘Irishman’ and ‘Hollywood’ Favorites

Margot Robbie Charlize Theron Bombshell

The Screen Actors Guild announced their nominees for the 2020 SAG Awards, and one movie in particular got a boost with their choices. Bombshell has been doing well so far this awards season, but mostly for shoo-ins Charlize Theron and Margot Robbie in lead actress and supporting actress categories, respectively. SAG  favored the movie even further with nods for Nicole Kidman for Best Supporting Actress, as well as for the main ensemble of the drama in the Outstanding Cast category, which is the guild’s equivalent of Best Picture.

Matching Bombshell’s four nominations to tie the lead in the movie section are continued frontrunners The Irishman and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. They were each recognized for their cast as well as their stunt team. Hollywood also scored a Best Actor nod for Leonardo DiCaprio, while The Irishman’s Robert De Niro was surprisingly left out of that category. The Irishman has two nominees for Best Supporting Actor, though: Al Pacino and Joe Pesci. Their competition there includes Hollywood’s Brad Pitt.

Netflix did nab slots in the Best Actor and Best Actress categories, however, thanks to Marriage Story and leads Adam Driver and Scarlett Johansson, who also was nominated for her supporting performance in Jojo Rabbit. There, she’s up against Marriage Story’s Laura Dern. Among other pleasant surprises are Parasite’s nomination for Outstanding Cast, a rarity for a foreign-language film, Taron Egerton for Best Actor for Rocketman, Lupita Nyong’o for Best Supporting Actress for Us and Jamie Foxx nominated for Best Supporting Actor for Just Mercy, which hasn’t otherwise been present much in the awards conversation.

As for glaring snubs, the Screen Actors Guild completely ignored such fan favorites and, up until now, strong players as Little Women, Uncut Gems, The Two Popes, Dolemite is My Name, 1917, Richard Jewell and Pain and Glory, for which Antonio Banderas has been thought a very likely Oscar winner, let alone contender. De Niro’s absence from the Best Actor race is quite interesting, meanwhile, since the Irishman star is being honored with a lifetime achievement award at the SAGs.

Scarlett Johansson — Marriage Story
Lupita Nyong’o — Us
Charlize Theron — Bombshell
