Peer praise. The 28th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards give actors a chance to highlight their fellow stars, and the official list of nominations was revealed on Wednesday, January 12.
Actresses Rosario Dawson and Vanessa Hudgens announced the 2022 SAG Awards nominees via Instagram Live on the show’s social media account. Last year was the first time that social media was used to announce the union’s nominees amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and the show decided to return to the platform after the omicron variant delayed the January 9 show by more than a month to February 27.
The High School Musical alum, 42, has received rave reviews for her performance opposite best actor nominee Andrew Garfield in Netflix’s musical movie Tick, Tick … Boom! Meanwhile, Dawson, 33, starred in Hulu’s critically acclaimed TV show, Dopesick.
Before Hudgens and Rosario announced the categories, SAG-AFTRA president Fran Drescher, 64, gave an introduction via Instagram Stories.
“After such a long time apart, we’re excited to be together again this year at the 28th annual Screen Actor’s Guild Awards,” the Nanny alum, 64, said.
SAG Awards committee members Jason George and Elizabeth McLaughlin revealed the nominations for the outstanding action performances by television and film ensembles — which gave several nods to Marvel Studios for Black Widow, Loki and more — and then the Gimme Shelter costars came in with a slew of announcements.
The SAG Awards solely honors actors, and the statues are given for both film and TV performances. The top categories are for the ensemble casts. While TV gets categories for moth comedy and drama, the films have to duke it out in one category — and the competition is going to be close this year.
Jamie Dornan and Caitriona Balfe made waves in Belfast. Newcomer Emilia Jones wowed audiences in CODA alongside Marlee Matlin and Troy Kotsur. Lady Gaga and Jared Leto were raved about after House of Gucci. Leonardo DiCaprio, Jennifer Lawrence and Meryl Streep and more dazzled in Don’t Look Up, and Will Smith left his mark with the King Richard biopic.
Winners will be announced at the SAG Awards at Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, California. The show will air live Sunday, February 27, on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. ET.
