The Screen Actors Guild nominations are a major part of Oscar season in that they are the awards given out by the actors to the actors and are typically a better judge of the final results than, say, the Golden Globes, which are voted on by like 90 random press members. The Academy is made up in large part by actors in SAG so the crossover is high. This year, the nominations are interesting. Some are great and others make you want to tear your hair out, but overall there’s this sense that a lot of the big decisions were made months in advance and nothing was ever going to change that. Such is the reality of awards season. Get used to it.

So… Nothing for If Beale Street Could Talk? Not even for Regina King? And Bohemian Rhapsody for best cast?! I love how we’re all pretending this is a #MeToo season where we are dealing with the systemic abuses of the industry while pretending rewarding a bad movie that made money won’t in any way benefit Bryan Singer. It’s nice to see films like Crazy Rich Asians get their dues, but overall, a lot of this was just kind of… I don’t know… ‘Predictable’ feels a little off, even though a lot of it was. It feels like people ticking the boxes they’re supposed to, then making interesting choices not because of merit but because it makes for a good narrative. I’m going to start stocking up on my Oscar night wine now, just in case.
