The 2018 Screen Actors Guild award nominations, which were announced Wednesday morning by Olivia Munn and Niecy Nash, are one of the telling previews for who will have a shot at a coveted Academy Award — but it wouldn’t be awards season without some curveballs.
Were your favorite movies and TV shows overlooked? See the breakdown of the biggest surprises and oversights from this year’s SAG Awards nominations below.
Surprise The Big Sick makes a rebound
After getting shut out completely from the Golden Globe Award nominations Monday, the feel-good comedy made a swift rebound, netting two nominations for Holly Hunter (supporting actress) and best ensemble. Its Oscar prospects now look a whole lot sweeter.
Snub Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and The Post
Considered a front-runner since the project was first announced, Steven Spielberg’s timely journalist drama starring two awards titans — Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks — was completely overlooked by SAG. This is especially shocking as Streep was considered a front-runner for the best actress Oscar for her performance as Washington Post publisher Katherine Graham.
Surprise Woody Harrelson for Supporting Actor in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
Woody Harrelson snuck into a crowded category that also included his Three Billboard costar Sam Rockwell. The veteran actor shines in an understated performance as the sheriff of a small town who is under attack for not finding a culprit in a rape and murder case. His performance is the most tear-jerking in a film full of memorable ones.
Snub Armie Hammer for Supporting Actor in Call Me By Your Name
Although his costar Timothee Chalamet received a nod for his role in Call Me By Your Name, Armie Hammer was left out of the SAG nominations. The actor did however net a Golden Globe nomination, so the Oscars aren’t totally out of the question.
Surprise Daniel Kaluuya for Actor in Get Out
Although nominated for a Golden Globe in the lead actor in a comedy category, Daniel Kaluuya didn’t seem like a lock in the truncated race at the SAG and Oscars. Wednesday morning’s nomination shows that the Get Out actor might contend with the big leagues after all.
Snub Daniel Day-Lewis for Actor in Phantom Thread
Daniel Day-Lewis has received rave reviews for his performance in Phantom Thread, so it was a surprise when his name was not announced as a contender for best male actor in a leading role — especially after nabbing a Golden Globe nomination earlier this week. The film also marks his final acting performance before his retirement, making the snub sting all the more.
Snub All the Money in the World across the board
After surprising with three Golden Globe nominations on Monday, Ridley Scott’s thriller came up short with SAG voters, failing to gain nominations for Globe nominees Michelle Williams and Christopher Plummer, who took over the role of J. Paul Getty from Kevin Spacey in the wake of the controversy that recently engulfed the House of Cards star.

Snubs Chrissy Metz and Milo Ventimiglia for This Is Us
With the exception of Emmy winner Sterling K. Brown, the celebrated cast of This is Us was completely left off the ballot in the individual categories. Awards show darling Chrissy Metz was snubbed after picking up a Golden Globe nomination Monday while Milo Ventimiglia, another staple since the show’s premiere, was also left off. However, the whole cast was nominated in the best ensemble in a comedy category, meaning the whole Pearson clan will be attending the ceremony.
Surprise All the love for GLOW
The Netflix hit GLOW is turning into the little show that could. After Alison Brie earned a Golden Globe nomination for her role as an actress turned female wrestler, GLOW continued its hot streak into the SAG nominations. The show earned three nods, including another for Brie, one for her costar Marc Maron and outstanding ensemble in a comedy series.
Snubs Kevin Spacey and Jeffrey Tambor
For every season of their respective shows, Kevin Spacey (House of Cards) and Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent) have been nominated for SAG awards. Spacey has won twice; Tambor once. This year, SAG overlooked their performances. Spacey will not appear in the upcoming season of House of Cards following allegations of sexual misconduct against the actor, while Tambor has suggested he will quit his show after being accused of sexual harassment on set.
Surprise Sean Hayes for Will & Grace
Returning to the supporting but scene stealing role of Jack in NBC’s popular revival of Will & Grace, Sean Hayes laughed his way to a surprise nomination for his physical performance.
Snubs Everyone else in Will & Grace
The rest of Will & Grace cast however failed to land any nominations, including lead Eric McCormack, who on Monday received a Golden Globe nomination over his cast mates.
