‘Moonlight’, ‘Fences’, ‘Hidden Figures’ Make History with SAG Award Nominations

EUR WEB – *The entire casts of “Moonlight,” “Fences” and “Hidden Figures” were among the nominees for the 23rd annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, announced Wednesday morning by the actors guild SAG-AFTRA.

 

Their nominations mark the first time since 2008 that the majority of nominees in the Outstanding Cast category are people of color.

 

“Fences” is the screen adaptation of August Wilson’s drama about a black family in ‘50s Pittsburgh; and “Hidden Figures” follows the three black women mathematicians who joined NASA’s space program in the ‘60s, and “Moonlight” centers on a young gay black man coming of age in a tough Miami neighborhood.

 

The three films will compete in the Outstanding Cast category along with “Manchester by the Sea” and “Captain Fantastic.”

 

“Moonlight” earned a total of three noms, with its supporting actor and actress Mahershala Ali and Naomie Harris also earning nominations.

 

“Fences” also picked up three total noms, with Denzel Washington, who directed the film, earning a lead actor nom and Viola Davis, who plays his characters’ wife, earning a supporting actress nomination.

 

“Manchester” led all SAG nominees with four, including individual nods for lead actor Casey Affleck and supporting actress and actor Michelle Williams and Lucas Hedges.

2016 Television Critics Association Awards nominations

EW – With Emmy season in full swing, the Television Critics Association has announced the roster of nominees for its 32nd annual awards ceremony, boosting HBO and FX to the top of the pack with 12 and 11 overall nominations, respectively.

 

While HBO and FX lead in total nominations, USA’s Mr. Robot, a first-time nominee, garnered the most individual nods for a series (tied with FX’s The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story), earning recognition in Individual Achievement in Drama (Rami Malek), Outstanding New Program, Outstanding Achievement in Drama, and Program of the Year.

 

Elsewhere in Program of the Year, HBO scored a nomination for Game of Thrones, while FX landed three series amid the category’s seven slots: Fargo, The Americans, and The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Lifetime’s UnREAL and Netflix’s Making a Murderer round out the list of Program of the Year contenders.

 

The CW also made a strong showing with the TCA, earning three total nominations for its Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, including in Individual Achievement in Comedy (Rachel Bloom) and Outstanding New Program. It’s worth noting that each of the nominees in the latter category come from smaller networks, as series from the usual suspects like ABC, HBO, and other major TV players are noticeably absent. WGN America (Underground), Netflix (Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Masters of None), USA (Mr. Robot), and Lifetime (UnREAL), however, picked up the slack.

2016 Oscars Nominations: Snubs and Surprises

E! ONLINE – Say what?!?!

 

Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs, directors Guillermo Del Toro and Ang Lee and actor John Krasinski announced the nominations for the 2016 Oscars Thursday morning, and while justice was served for some, others were completely snubbed. In additions to the snubs there were also plenty of surprises that caught us off guard, so this year’s Oscars will probably be full of even more shocking moments (with the help of host Chris Rock, of course).

 

Let’s talk about how “See You Again,” the song from Furious 7 performed by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth, didn’t earn a nomination for Best Song. That’s right, Paul Walker’s tribute didn’t get a nod. Instead, “Earned It” by The Weekend from Fifty Shades of Grey made the cut as well as Golden Globe-winning “Writing’s on the Wall” by Sam Smith from Spectre, which sort of went without saying. But “Earned It” over “See You Again”?! We’d understand “Love Me Like You Do,” but “Earned It” seems a little out of left field. Continuing in the song category, we’re still surprised about Lady Gaga. Yes, it was awesome to watch her win the Golden Globe, but it’s still slightly jaw-dropping how she can go from slightly out there performer to a potential EGOT winner in a year.
