SAG Award nominations 2024: It’s a ‘Barbenheimer’ rematch

Margot Robbie in “Barbie” and Cillian Murphy in “Oppenheimer.” Each was nominated for a SAG Award.

Box office behemoths “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” led this year’s nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which were announced Wednesday. Each film picked up four nominations, including ones for the guild’s top ensemble prize.

In addition to that nomination, “Barbie” earned additional nods for lead actress Margot Robbie and supporting actor Ryan Gosling, as well as for its stunt ensemble. The other three nominations for “Oppenheimer” were for lead actor Cillian Murphy and supporting performers Robert Downey Jr. and Emily Blunt. Both Murphy and Downey prevailed in their categories during Sunday’s Golden Globes.

Other nominees for the top award included “American Fiction,” “The Color Purple” and “Killers of the Flower Moon.” Still, the latter movie was dealt one of the morning’s biggest snubs when star Leonardo DiCaprio failed to crack the best-actor lineup. “May December” received the coldest shoulder, going zero for three with contenders Natalie Portman, Julianne Moore and Charles Melton.

Rarely do actors win the Oscar without first scoring a nomination from their own guild. Last year, the entire quartet of SAG winners went on to repeat at the Oscars, while the SAG ensemble winner, “Everything Everywhere All at Once,” also took the Oscars’ best picture prize.

But there is still some wiggle room in each category for a SAG-snubbed actor to earn an Oscar nomination, as the likes of Paul Mescal (“Aftersun”), Michelle Williams (“The Fabelmans”), and Andrea Riseborough (“To Leslie”) managed last year. And since the SAG ensemble award favors films with large casts, more intimately scaled movies like “Past Lives” and “The Holdovers” shouldn’t be counted out.

The awards will be handed out Feb. 24 and in a twist be broadcast live on Netflix.
