The end Chadwick boseman was nominated for both My Rainey and Da 5 Bloods. Gary Oldman, Amy Adams, Viola Davis, Vanessa Kirby, Sacha Baron Cohen and Glenn Close also received nods for their roles in the Netflix films. Riz Ahmed has been nominated for Sound of metal, just like Leslie Odom Jr for One night in Miami and Maria Bakalova for Next Borat movie – Amazon distributed all three films.
There were also nods for Jared Leto (The small things) and Daniel Kaluuya (Judas and the Black Messiah). These films both had simultaneous release dates in theaters and on HBO Max.
On the television front, Netflix has three of the five nominees for the set of drama series (Bridgerton, The crown and Ozark), who are against You better call Saul and Lovecraft Country. It is guaranteed to win in the category of Best Female Actor in a Drama Series as the five nominees are from The crown and Ozark.
In the comic categories, Apple TV + series Ted lasso continued his strong awards season with one ensemble nomination and one for star Jason Sudeikis. Netflix Dead to me, HBO Max Show The stewardess and Hulu’s Great also picked up nods. Elsewhere, Disney + had a little love for Daveed Diggs’ performance in Hamilton and the stunt teams of The Mandalorian and Mulan. The latter’s rivals in the cinema category include Wonder Woman 1984, Da 5 Bloods and The Chicago Trial 7.
It should be noted that there is a large degree of crossover between members of SAG and the Acting branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, so expect many of these names to be among the nominated for this year’s Oscars. The SAG Awards will air on April 4 on TNT and TBS.
