OK, so who’s nominated for the SAG Awards, happening tonight? The SAG ceremony is always more anticipated for the fashion and red carpet photos, rather than the actual show, but the winners list tends to be a good indicator for the Oscars later on. So, who’s on the list this year?

Michael Keaton
Michael Keaton is among the leading nominees for the SAG awards this year.

Boyhood and Birdman will go head to head in the best picture race, since the SAG awards don’t have separate genre categories. Michael Keaton, who stars in Birdman is a clear favourite this season for the honor, having scored wins for best actor in a comedy at the Golden Globes and for best actor at the Critics' Choice Awards, while Patricia Arquette won for best supporting actress in a drama at both shows, with Ellar Coltrane picking up best young actor awards at the Critics' Choice. Birdman won best acting ensemble at the Critics' Choice.

The Imitation Game, The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Theory of Everything are also likely to win big, but mostly in the acting categories, where Benedict Cumberbatch, Ralph Fiennes and Eddie Redmayne are all nominees.


On the TV side of things, Homeland, House of Cards, Downton Abbey, Game of Thrones and a cancelled Boardwalk Empire all received nods, so it’s tough to pick favourites out of the bunch. All five shows went out with solid seasons last year.

For comedy, there's perennials The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family along with Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Orange Is the New Black, and Veep.


The SAG Awards will be broadcast tonight at 8 p.m. on TNT and TBS.
