Screen Actors Guild Awards To Celebrate Girl Power With All Female Presenters

Screen Actors Guild Awards To Celebrate Girl Power With All Female Presenters

SAG's nominations announced on Wednesday for movie and television performances featured many female-centric stories, including mother-daughter film "Lady Bird", ice-skating movie "I, Tonya", TV series "Big Little Lies" and wrestling drama "Glow".

"This is already too good to be true", the 27-year-old actress beamed. I'll never quibble with the annual Orange ensemble nomination (and frequent win) because it truly is TV's best and deepest ensemble, but I can't see nominating Aduba every year for a frequently underserved supporting role when the actors going un-nominated include Adlon, Shaw, Brosnahan, Issa Rae, DeWanda Wise, Justina Machado, Rita Moreno, Tracee Ellis Ross, Emmy Rossum and Kristen Bell, who happens to be hosting the darned SAG Awards telecast this year.

Watch the sweet moment she finds out below. The best picture momentum for Greta Gerwig's Lady Bird and Jordan Peele's Get Out, each of which nabbed major SAG nominations (best actress, best supporting actress, and best ensemble for Lady Bird; best actor and best ensemble for Get Out). In contrast, the SAG nominations also offered a bounce back for Curb Your Enthusiasm, as the returning HBO comedy was left out by the Globes, but landed nominations for Larry David and the ensemble this morning.

Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture - "The Big Sick" received two nominations for outstanding ensemble cast in a motion picture and female actor in a supporting role for Holly Hunter. Both Lady Bird and Get Out have received universal praise all year - it's hard to find someone who hasn't been won over by these movies - and if SAG Awards history is any indication, either could win up winning best picture in March.

Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series - "The Crown" star Claire Foy was crowned a victor at last year's SAG Awards.

It was revealed earlier this month that Kristen Bell was named the show's first-ever host.

Naturally, men will still be honored during the ceremony, with Morgan Freeman receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award, and other men appearing on stage to introduce video clips from their nominated shows. He will have to fight it out with Denzel Washington's critically-praised turn in "Roman J Israel, Esq.', James Franco's "The Disaster Artist", Timothee Chalamet for "Call Me by Your Name" and Daniel Kaluuya of "Get Out". Get Out, Lady Bird, The Bick Sick, Mudbound-all of these were recognized among the nominees. Instead, the female actor in a comedy field remains tough to break into, especially if both Grace and Frankie actresses apparently have to be nominated.
