Sag Awards – Oppenheimer leads nominations while Leonardo DiCaprio is snubbed

Oppenheimer leads the nominations for the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards, days after triumphing at the Golden Globes.

Christopher Nolan’s film has four nominations, while American Fiction, Barbie and Killers of the Flower Moon have three each.

However, Leonardo DiCaprio is notably absent from the best actor category.

Winners are voted on by Sag-Aftra members of more than 119,000 actors.

Succession, Beef, The Crown, Ted Lasso and The Bear are among the nominees in the television categories.


The film nominees
4 nominations – Oppenheimer
3 – American Fiction, Flower Moon Killers, Barbie
2 – The Holdovers, Maestro, Nyad, Poor People, The Color Purple
1 – Rustin, Ferrari
While DiCaprio is a notable omission in the best actor category, this is a particularly busy year for the category, and five of the other front-runners have been nominated at the SAG Awards.

Bradley Cooper, Colman Domingo, Paul Giamatti, Cillian Murphy and Jeffrey Wright are all recognised.

In the race for best actress, three of the women considered favorites for an Oscar nomination – Emma Stone, Lily Gladstone and Carey Mulligan – are joined at the SAG by Margot Robbie for Barbie and Annette Bening for Nyad.

The SAG Awards offer a good indication of which actors could be nominated later this month for the Oscars. This year’s Academy Awards will take place on March 10.

In the television categories, the most notable absence is Succession’s Jeremy Strong, but his co-stars Kieran Culkin, Sarah Snook, Brian Cox and Matthew Macfadyen are all nominated.

Oppenheimer and Succession were the big winners at Sunday’s Golden Globes, while Anatomy of a Fall, The Holdovers, Barbie and Poor Things each won two awards.
