Among the many awards season updates throughout the end of the year, the SAG awards carry more authority than most of the others leading up to them. Unlike the various critics awards and the Golden Globes, many SAG voters are also Academy members, which means that the nominations actually provide some clear indications of which Oscar contenders have real momentum.
While “A Star Is Born” continues its popularity streak, the 2019 SAG nominees have plenty of intriguing surprises in them — including significant support for “BlacKkKlansman.” But it’s not the only major title worth digging into from these results. In this week’s episode of Screen Talk, Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson talk through this year’s SAG nominations and what they mean for the weeks ahead.
