Three Billboards - SAG Awards

The nominees for the 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards have been announced today, putting awards season in full swing before along with the Global Globe nominations earlier this week. The Screen Actors Guild Awards are unique in that it's the actors themselves choose the best performances from amongst their peers. Last year's big winners were Mahershala Ali for Moonlight and Emma Stone for La La Land, both of whom deserved the glory. This year they've selected another exceptional set of notable performers - from films including Get Out, The Disaster Artist, Darkest Hour, The Florida Project, Call Me by Your Name, and I Tonya. Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri and Lady Bird are the top nominees. I'm very happy with all this, especially Sally Hawkins and Timothee Chalamet, the two best performances of the year.

Here's the full list of film nominees for the 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards (see TV nominees here):

ACTOR:
Timothee Chalamet - Call Me by Your Name

And there you have it. The SAG Awards winners will be announced on Sunday, January 21st early next year, airing on TNT and TBS at 8pm ET/5pm PT, hosted by Kristen Bell. Some of the biggest snubs from this include no nominees from Spielberg's The Post or PTA's Phantom Thread, and also nothing for Armie Hammer or Michael Stuhlbarg from the outstanding Call Me by Your Name. There's also lots of discussion around Tiffany Haddish from Girls Trip not getting a nomination, including rumors that the guilds wouldn't even watch the film. As always, the debate rages on, and will continue will into next year. But for now - these are the nominations for 2017 from SAG (for more info visit sagawards.org) and we'll be watching to see what happens when the Academy Award nominations are revealed in January. What do you think of these picks?

I loved "Three Billboards."

Yeah I did. It didn't pander to the audience too much, and just when you think it might be, it rips those pandering thoughts right out from under you. I'll see it again this weekend for sure.

I like movies with characters that are recognizably human, with a protagonist I'm interested in, and dialogue that reminds me of the real way people talk. I know that's vague, but I'll tell you most of these movie needs don't come in big studio films. In fact, they never really do, even though I do have guilty pleasure movies.

Oh yes. I own it. I’m with you: Clouds was...okay. The parallels between the stage play and the real-goings-on made it predictable for me. Well acted, watchable, but didn’t cause me to think. Personal Shopper on the other hand: I’m still trying to figure out what that film not only means, but what it means to me.

My dud-meter is off on this one Bo. I'd say it will be a fantastic movie a la Coen Bros. Really interested in this one.

Looks like a fairly even list. I really want to see THREE BILLBOARDS now.
