Jennifer Aniston Somehow Managed to Sneak Her Name Onto the Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations List

This is about that time in the pre-Oscar award season when we basically see the same 5-6 films get nominated for every award from now until February 22. This morning's announcement of the Screen Actors Guild Awards nominees was no different, so I won't even bother to reiterate my remarks (most of which can be found in my Independent Spirit Awards post). But I will say this: Are we really going to ride this Jennifer Aniston train all the way to the Oscars? Like, for serious? Please tell me it's not just because she's not wearing any makeup in Cake. PLEASE, let it be more than that.

Oh also, I am here for all things Rosamund Pike. So let's get that discussion going. And while we're on the subject of Gone Girl, can Ben Affleck get some love? Do I have to remind folks again how perfect he was for that role? I'm just saying.

Lastly, I remain perplexed by the amount of awards adoration for TV movie A Trip to the Bountiful (adapted from the most recent Broadway show starring Cicely Tyson). As I've said before, that sh*t is awful, despite the legendary Tyson. And let me not get into the obvious snubs from both the TV and film side:

Gugu Mbatha-Raw in Belle
Emmy Rossum on Shameless
Gina Rodriguez on Jane the Virgin
Anthony Anderson on Black-ish
Tracee Ellis Ross on Black-ish
Mandy Pantinkin on Homeland
Rupert Friend on Homeland
Nimrat Kaur on Homeland
Melissa McBride on The Walking Dead
Sheila Vand in A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night
Essie Davis in The Babadook

And those are just the few off the top of my head. I hope to see some of these names in the next few months. Check out the complete list of nominees here

The 2015 SAG Awards will be held on January 25 and broadcast live on TNT and TBS.

YES to Melissa McBride! I'm getting more curious about Cake, I haven't seen a single review on it from any of the blogs/sites I follow.

I didn't get a chance to see Beyond the Lights, would you vote for Mbatha-Raw for her role in that film?

Candice Frederick said...

@Colin Biggs No, I wouldn't.
