SAG Awards 2019: Surprises and Snubs

The 25th annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) honored the best of the year in TV and film on Sunday night, with many surprises along the way.

Black Panther surprised everyone, including its cast, by earning the best cast in a motion picture.

On the flip side, the critically acclaimed A Star Is Born did not win any award.

On the TV side, “The Americans” failed to get any award for its last season as did the freshman season of the Bill Hader comedy “Barry.”

Snub: Amy Adams, “Vice”

Regina King, who is a shoo-in to win the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for for If Beale Street Could Talk, was not even nominated.

As a result, many expected Amy Adams to finally earn an individual SAG Award, for Vice.

Adams has just received her sixth Oscar nomination for that film. But instead, the SAG surprise winner was Emily Blunt for her turn in her husband, John Krasinski, thriller, A Quiet Place.

Blunt, as is known by now, has not been nominated for an Oscar this year, for either her supporting role in A Quiet Place, nor for a lead role in Mary Poppins Returns.

It was expected, though, that the two other nominees in the supporting league, Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, both for The Favourite, would cancel each other out.
