Screen Actors Guild Awards 2016 – Nominees

Hollywood’s illustrious awards season has officially kicked off for 2016 with the official release of the Screen Actors Guild nominations – and it looks set to be a close fought battle between some of the industries elite.

Leading the film nominations is perhaps an unexpected inclusion in the form of 1940’s based drama, Trumbo – based on the life of blacklisted Hollywood screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, the highly rated biopic has received 3 nominations and stars Bryan Cranston and Helen Mirren, who both find themselves up for leading actor nominations.

Among the other lead acting nominees are JohnnyScree Depp, Leonardo DiCaprio, Eddie Redmayne, Cate Blanchett and Sarah Silverman, who will all battle it out in their respective categories. Perhaps surprising though is the exclusion of awards favourites Jennifer Lawrence, Matt Damon and Will Smith, who all failed to make the cut this year – surprising to some considering SAG nominees often find themselves nominated for Oscars.

Hip-hop biopic Straight Outta Compton finds itself nominated for Best Ensemble Cast, a category it is tipped by many to win, though Trumbo and Beats of a Nation will prove tough contenders.

It’ll be a big night for British talent, especially for Academy Award-nominee Idris Elba, who find himself nominated in both film and TV categories for his performances in Beasts of a Nation (2015) and Luther (TV). Another high-profile British export, Eddie Redmayne, will also be looking to capitalize of his 2015 Oscar success with the Best Leading Actor award for his breath-taking performance in The Danish Girl.

SAG Awards
Orange is the New Black star Uzo Aduba will be looking to retain her SAG Award for Best Actress.

It looks set to be another year that sees TV heavyweights Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey, Homeland and House of Cards all battle it out for bragging rights when their leading stars go head-to-head in the acting categories.
