Awards season continues in high gear, with a number of theatre favorites scoring a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for their work in the past year. The winners, selected by a large voting body of fellow performers and often a harbinger of the upcoming Oscars, will be revealed February 27 at 8 PM ET in a live televised ceremony on TNT and TBS.
Among the highlights are Tony nominee Ariana DeBose and upcoming Macbeth star Ruth Negga scoring nods for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for West Side Story and Passing, respectively. Fellow Tony nominee Cate Blanchett is also in that category for her work in Nightmare Alley.
Benedict Cumberbatch, Andrew Garfield, and Denzel Washington will compete in Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for their performances in The Power of the Dog, tick, tick…BOOM!, and The Tragedy of Macbeth respectively. Other theatre alums getting recognized for their work in film were Jennifer Hudson (Respect), Nicole Kidman (Being the Ricardos), and Bradley Cooper (Nightmare Alley).
On the TV side, Tony nominee Jean Smart continues to scoop up nominations for her work in both drama and comedy with Mare of Easttown and Hacks. She’ll compete against Tony winner Cynthia Erivo (Genius: Aretha) for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries, and with Olivier winner Hannah Waddingham (Ted Lasso) in Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series.
Other stage favorites scoring nominations this year are Tony winners Billy Crudup (The Morning Show) and Martin Short (Only Murders in the Building); Tony nominees Steve Martin (Only Murders in the Building), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid’s Tale), and Brain Cox (Succession); and Oscar Isaac (Scenes From a Marriage).
