Some Thoughts on the SAG Nominees

December 14, 2011 by  

As you may have seen, the Screen Actors Guild Award nominees were announced this morning, and boy, if you’re on Twitter, you may have seen many people who cover television for a living collectively lose their minds.

So which snubs and/or nominations are making me scratch my head the most? Take a look…

  • Hello, actors. Did you not see HOMELAND? Claire Danes. Damian Lewis. Mandy Patinkin. Are you seriously telling me none of those people deserved individual recognition (or, heck, an ensemble nod)?
  • One day, a legitimate award show will acknowledge FRINGE’s John Noble. I don’t know which one it will be, but I refuse to believe it won’t happen. (Trying to use that whole “positive thoughts” thing here.)
  • Out of all the USA Network shows to acknowledge, SAG nominates someone from SUITS? Okay, then.
  • While getting four acting nominations (and a group nominee) is swell for those MODERN FAMILY folks, how awkward must it be for Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Ed O’Neil, who were the only two adults overlooked for individual nominations?
  • As much as I’m iffy on THE OFFICE right now, Steve Carell’s nomination was deserved. I’m not surprised the ensemble got the nod, either.
  • Poor COUGAR TOWN is always overlooked.
  • I’m so glad THE BIG BANG THEORY got nominated for comedy ensemble, but boy do I wish the fabulous Jim Parsons got acknowledged by his peers.
  • Seriously. HOMELAND. Watch it.

Enough from me…what has you annoyed/excited about the SAG nominations? (And anyone else hoping the Golden Globes do better tomorrow?)

    Anna Torv not being nominated , very annoying.
    As is the constant ignoring of her importance by so called Fringe fan critics.
    Anna Torv is the one that made season 3, the episodes with her central brought Fringe the new acclaim, very unfair to give that credit to John Noble.
    as much as I like him and agree that he is a great actor, just as Anna is,
    Walter is the best written character on tv.

    This season Anna with her new Olivia version and her double act is superior to John Noble, new Walter is not much different from the old one, he even needs a phobia to show it, and I am still not impressed with Walternate, where Fauxlivia is a complete character on its own, also in this timeline.

    I think both Anna and John will have to wait for a new series on cable before they get the major award recognition. Why not give them a sort of Homeland?
