The nominees of the 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) were recently announced. In the lead are Amy Adams, Emily Blunt and Emma Stone with two nominations each.
According to People.com, Adams landed a nomination for HBO's Sharp Objects as well as her supporting role in Vice. Blunt scored in both supporting and leading categories for A Quiet Place and Mary Poppins Returns while Stone got a nomination for Maniac and for her work in The Favourite.
Stone's co-actor Rachel Weisz in The Favourite also received a nomination for a supporting role. New York Times writes, that for the best actress categories, other nominees are: Glenn Close for The Wife, Olivia Colman for The Favourite, Lady Gaga for A Star is Born and Melissa McCarthy for Can You Ever Forgive Me?
It was noticed by many social media users that there was a lack of representation of women of colour in the nominations. Only Sandra Oh bagged a nomination for her the television series, Killing Eve.
Amy Adams (VICE, SHARP OBJECTS), Emma Stone (FAVOURITE, MANIAC) and Emily Blunt (MARY POPPINS, QUIET PLACE) were all nominated for multiple #SAG awards this morning.

No WOC nominated for Best Lead or Supporting Actress in a year where we had WIDOWS, ROMA, SHOPLIFTERS, IF BEALE STREET COULD TALK, and THE HATE U GIVE. Are you kidding me, #SAGAwards? — Rukhmani K. Desai (@RukhDesai) December 12, 2018

#SagAwards I don't understand how any award given for ACTING can ever leave out Viola Davis.#Widows was so good. That entire cast deserved to be recognized. — M. Pelissier (@Is_Pelissier) December 12, 2018
So many opportunities to reward great & groundbreaking performances by WOC this year. Yalitza Aparicio in Roma. The women in Black Panther. Regina King in Beale Street. Constance Wu and Michelle Yeoh in CRA. Regina Hall in Support the Girls.

The 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place on 27 January in Los Angeles.
Although less high-profile than the Golden Globes, the SAG awards are seen as more of an indicator of Oscars glory, since members represent some 1,200 of the roughly 6,000 voters for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
