The Golden Globes, which is usually the opening party in the last leg of the Oscars, has barely begun this year. The winners were announced Sunday on Twitter during a special ceremony due to the Hollywood boycott of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association on issues of diversity and ethics. The increase in omicron also caused the Critics Choice Awards on January 9 to be postponed. For the second year, awards season has become virtual and it has struggled to make a lot of noise.
The SAG nominations on Wednesday confirmed at least that this year’s Oscars race features big stars.

The SAG Awards, presented by the SAG-AFTRA Actors Association, are among the most authoritative criteria for Academy Awards. Rarely does a movie or performance that screen actors have not nominated for an Academy Award win. Actors make up the largest proportion of the film academy, so their choices have the most impact.
But in the past year, the SAG and the Academy have diverged more than usual. Only one of the award-winning actors, Daniel Kaluuya for “Judas and the Black Christ” (“Judas and the Black Christ”), also won an Oscar. Other SAG winners are Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and Yoh Jung Yoon for “Minari”. Court drama Aaron Sorkin “The Trial of the Chicago 7” won the SAG Award for Best Cast, while Chloé Zhao’s “Nomadland”, which featured several non-professional and non-professional actors. It was nominated for Best Cast, and won an Academy Award for Best Picture.
This scorecard will give hope to fans of Kristen Stewart (“Spencer”), who has been overlooked by the union, as well as Peter Dinklage (“Cyrano”), Ciarán Hinds (“Belfast”), and Rachel Zegler (“West Side Story”).
While some have endorsed some of the year’s hottest blockbusters to give the Academy Awards a popular jolt, “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” “Dion” and “No Time to Die” did not receive major nominations Wednesday for the Actors Guild. However, “Dune” and “No Time to Die” joined the “Black Widow”, “The Matrix Resources” and “Shang Qi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”.
