The Screen Actors Guild today took the wraps off the nominations for the 21st SAG Awards, with the list dominated by “perennials.” The Los Angeles Times reports that only four nominees come from shows that are currently in their first seasons.
“The duo of Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey both received nominations for the HBO series ‘True Detective,’ as did Viola Davis for ABC’s ‘How to Get Away With Murder’ and the ensemble cast of Fox’s ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,'” the story reports. “But many of the nominees have been TV fixtures for years, including the recently concluded HBO series ‘Boardwalk Empire.'”
The article notes that some key snubs from last year made the cut this time around, notably the ensemble casts of the Netflix series “House of Cards” and “Orange Is the New Black,” along with Tatiana Maslany of BBC America’s “Orphan Black.”
“Edie Falco grabbed her fifth individual acting nomination for Showtime’s ‘Nurse Jackie,’ which was her 21st SAG Award nomination overall, making her the most nominated performer ever at the SAG Awards,” the Times reports.
In the prestigious ensemble category for drama series, the competition will pit previous category winners “Boardwalk Empire” and “Downton Abbey” against Showtime’s “Homeland,” HBO’s “Game of Thrones” and Netflix’s “House of Cards.”
