The announcement of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) nominations for their annual awards this morning left many stunned with the complete omission of the thought to be Oscar bound The Post. Steven Spielberg’s superb film, bolstered by award worthy performances from Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks was shockingly passed over in every single category this morning, sending shockwaves through Hollywood.

The Best Actor nominees include Timothee Chalamet in Call Me By Your Name, James Franco in The Disaster Artist, Gary Oldman in Darkest Hour, Daniel Kaluuya in Get Out and Denzel Washington in Roman J. Israel Esq. Snubbed was Tom Hanks from The Post, Daniel Day-Lewis in Phantom Thread, and Christian Bale in Hostiles. Kaluuya must be considered a surprise though a happy one for the makers of Get Out.

Best Actress nominees in this the year of the woman are Saorise Ronan in Lady Bird, Margot Robbie in I Tonya, Sally Hawkins in The Shape of Water, Frances McDormand in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri and Dame Judi Dench in Victoria and Abdul. Streep is the most obvious, and obscene omission here, Dench a surprise nominee.

Supporting Actor nods went to Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell from Three Billboards, Richard Jenkins in The Shape of Water, Willem Dafoe in The Florida Project, and Steve Carnell in Battle of the Sexes. Ignored were the actors from Call Me By Your Name, Armie Hammer and Michael Stuhlberg, but also Ray Romano in The Big Sick.

Supporting Actress nominees include Holly Hunter in The Big Sick, Mary J. Bilge in Mudbound, Alison Janney in I Tonya, Laurie Metcalf in Lady Bird and the luminous Hong Chau in Downsizing.

Outstanding ensemble nominees are The Big Sick, Get Out, Three Billboards. Lady Bird and Mudbound, leaving The Shape of Water, Dunkirk and The Post on the outside looking in.

To say the landscape of awards season has changed? Understatement. The awards often, but not always match up very close to the Academy Award nominations. The snubbing of The Post does not bode well for the film, one of the year’s best, and before this morning a frontrunner for Best Picture.
