You can take all your critics groups and shove it. The Screen Actors Guild is where the the truth lies. The Oscars alignment isn’t exact, because the SAG nominating committee is more mainstream and larger than the Academy’s dominant actors branch; each year, SAG selects a new nominating committee of 2500 members, about double the Academy voters. SAG Awards are actually more reflective of where the Academy actors are heading, what’s strong and what’s weak (Greta Gerwig’s “Little Women” was shut out).

Remember Bryan Cranston for “Trumbo”? The surprise SAG nominee also wound up with an Oscar nomination. This year, #MeToo drama “Bombshell,” also directed by Jay Roach, not only nabbed nominations for Charlize Theron, Margot Robbie, and Nicole Kidman but also a coveted Cast (or Ensemble) slot — the SAG equivalent of Best Picture — leading the acting field with four noms.
