Shock Snubs from Screen Actors Guild Award Noms: Streep, Hanks, Spielberg, Daniel Day Lewis OUT, New Generation IN


The SAG Awards have snubbed Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” and the stars in it– Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. It’s a shock. They also smacked down Daniel Day Lewis in “Phantom Thread.” This really says a lot about the new make up of SAG. Wow. This totally changes the Oscar prognostications. Best Ensemble winners at SAG usually win the Best Picture at the Oscars. But now Lady Bird, Mudbound, The Big Sick, Three Billboard Outside Ebbing Missouri, and Get Out are the top 5. Holy moly.
