The announcement of the Screen Actors Guild nominations on Wednesday stayed true to the awards template set by the Emmys and the Golden Globes — everyone, apparently, thinks Mrs. Maisel is marvelous — with a few exceptions.
Shutting out the lead actors of “The Americans”
The good news: FX’s critically lauded, slow-burning spy drama earned a long overdue SAG Awards nomination in the wake of its final season. The bad news: It was only one, in the ensemble category, as the SAGs again snubbed the show’s lead performers, Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, who portrayed the conflicted, identity-swapping Russian agents and couple at the center of the show.
SAG loves “Ozark”
Jason Bateman’s grim crime drama doubled its nominations haul at the SAGs from last year with four, adding Julia Garner and dramatic ensemble to go along with two more nominations for 2018 contenders Bateman and Laura Linney. In a bit of an upset, Netflix’s “Ozark” tied Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” for the most SAG nominations in the TV category after its second season.
