The SAG Awards Snub La La Land, See The Full Nominees

Manchester By The Sea

Because the Actors branch makes up such a significant portion of the Academy membership, the nominees for the annual Screen Actors Guild can often have a major impact on the ongoing Oscar race. If that's the case, then this morning's announcement of the 2017 SAG Awards nominees threw some weight behind Kenneth Lonergan's Manchester By The Sea and Moonlight, but put a ding in the armor that has encased La La Land up to this point.

SAG doesn't do a Best Picture, per se. They do Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, the equivalent award, and this year they went with: Captain Fantastic; Fences; Hidden Figures; Manchester By The Sea; and Moonlight. I have no real issue with those selections, though in seeing that, I realize that my current personal frontrunner, La La Land, has an uphill battle to win a Best Picture Oscar without this SAG recognition. Still, outside of Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone (who each received individual nominations), the full ensemble for Damien Chazelle's magical musical doesn't do much, so an ensemble snub is understood.

Here's the full list of 2017 SAG Awards nominees:
