2021 SAG Awards: By the Numbers

The 2022 SAG Awards are drawing mixed reactions after snubbing a few big names.

On Wednesday, Jan. 12, Rosario Dawson and Vanessa Hudgens announced the nominees for the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Instagram Live. It was a moment of much anticipation after the Golden Globe Awards went untelevised and unattended by their own nominees. As such, movie and TV fans are looking to the SAG Awards for their Academy Award predictions.

However, like with any award show, fans were dismayed to wake up and learn that their favorite stars were not nominated. Kristen Stewart, Selena Gomez and Rachel Zegler were left out of the running in their respective categories, while shows like InsecureWandavision and Dickinson were ignored entirely.

On the other hand, some worthy newcomers got a nod from the SAG-AFTRA cardholders. Squid Game was nominated for Ensemble Cast and Yellowstone received its first major nomination too.

So, it’s not all bad news. 

To see the snubs and surprises of the 2022 SAG Award nominees, continue scrolling!

Yellowstone

SAG-AFTRA cardholders are seemingly catching up on their TV, as Yellowstone just received it’s first major nomination after four seasons. The Paramount Network series is up for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, which means it’s time to start watching the series now, if you haven’t already.

Selena Gomez in Only Murders in the Building, Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series

Though the Hulu series was nominated for Ensemble Cast and Steve Martin and Martin Short were recognized in the Male Actor category, viewers of the show were surprised Selena was passed over for an individual nomination. Though Steve and Martin delivered hilarious performances, Selena’s portrayal of Mabel balanced out the trio and added a sense of emotional depth.

SURPRISE

Squid Game

SAG-AFTRA cardholders made history when they nominated Squid Game stars Jung Ho-Yeon and Lee Jung-Jae for their roles in the Netflix series, as the actors are the first individual performers to be nominated for non-English language TV roles. Additionally, the ensemble cast nod makes the show the first non-English language TV show to be nominated in the category.

Disney+

Elizabeth Olsen Wandavision, Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series

The Marvel star was surprisingly left out of this category after portraying the Scarlet Witch in the Disney+ series. This comes after Elizabeth won Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Television Movie at the 2021 Emmy Awards. Wandavision was also ignored in the stunt categories, with Marvel’s Loki and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier being nominated instead.

Rachel Zegler West Side Story, Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role

After winning a Golden Globe for her role in West Side Story, critics thought the teen was a shoe-in for a SAG nomination but it seems it wasn’t meant to be. Though she wasn’t nominated, her co-star, Ariana DeBose, was named in the Supporting Role category.

SURPRISE

Murray Bartlett The White Lotus, Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series

The Australian actor received his first SAG Award nomination for his portrayal of Armond in Mike White‘s The White Lotus. It’s especially surprising considering HBO ordered a second season of the show just before the finale. Nonetheless, he and Jennifer Coolidge are more than deserving of their nominations.

Kristen Stewart Spencer, Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role

Ahead of the 2022 award season, the Pablo Larraín film seemed poised for multiple nominations but fans were dismayed to learn neither the movie nor Kristen were nominated for a SAG Award. While the film itself received mixed reviews, the Twilight actress was applauded for her portrayal of Princess Diana.

Issa Rae Insecure, Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series

The actress and the series itself were left out of contention for the 2021 SAG Awards following their final season. It’s baffling that the series has never received a SAG Award nomination after five seasons on the air.

Apple TV+

SNUB

Hailee Steinfeld Dickinson and Hawkeye, Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series

With two shows in the running for award season, it seemed that Hailee had double the chances for a SAG nomination. However, both her Apple TV+ and Disney+ series were overlooked by her fellow card holders, even after critics applauded Hailee’s portrayal of Emily Dickinson in the final season of the show. As for her performance in Hawkeye, Hailee is not the only Marvel star to be snubbed—Elizabeth Olsen‘s Wandavision was left out of the nominations too.

“Y’all females better watch out from These low key gay n*ggas…Y’all better stop going through n*gga texts and start looking at they pornhub Lol…F*cking girls and guys was never cool,” he wrote on his story.

“I love gay ppl by the way I hate low key gay n*ggas who deal with females but on the low date guys,” ASAP Bari continued. “Stay True to urself and others.”

While many supporters of the influencer seemed to agree with his words, others were upset about his homophobic comments, sparking outrage on social media.

For someone who hates gay dudes he sure does talk about them a lot

Travis Scott Fans Start Petition to Have Rapper Perform at Coachella 2023

Travis Scott fans unite.

Since the tragedy that took place at the Astro World festival, Travis Scott has been in a bad spot in the public eye as many feel the rapper should be held accountable for the ten lives that were lost at his Houston festival.

Back in November, Travis Scott would hold a music festival with over 50,000 attendees. The pressure of so many people packed together in a tight space caused a drastic tragedy that would leave 10 attendees dead and hundreds injured. Following the festival, Scott offered to help pay for funeral costs for some of the victims of the tragedy but his offerings were turned down.

As the news of the tragedy got larger in the media, Scott began to go silent while many festivals began to remove the performer from their lineup including Coachella.

Travis Scott really wanted to perform for his fans at the upcoming Coachella festival this year, and even reportedly offered to perform for free before being denied all around.

It seems as though Travis Scott fans are trying to make their voices heard following a petition recently started for the rapper to perform at Coachella in 2023. The petition reportedly received over 70,000 signatures.

“After Coachella unfairly removed Travis Scott for Harry Styles, they need to do the right thing and rebook him immediately. Coachella switched Travis and Frank for Harry Styles and Billie Eilish? What kind of message does that send?” the petition reads.

It seems unlikely that Scott will be able to redeem himself anytime soon, however it’s surprising to see the rapper receive support from fans at this time.

Do you think Scott should be allowed to perform on big stages again? Share your thoughts with us on social media.

Hear the Famously Awful Smiths Song Morrissey Called Out in Letter to Johnny Marr

Published

It’s not quite clear what Johnny Marr said recently to piss off Morrissey, but it resulted in an extremely bitchy “open letter” from the former Smiths singer to his one-time guitarist and songwriting partner.

“You don’t know me,” Morrissey wrote. “You know nothing of my life, my intentions, my thoughts, my feelings. Yet you talk as if you were my personal psychiatrist with consistent and uninterrupted access to my instincts. We haven’t known each other for 35 years — which is many lifetimes ago. When we met you and I were not successful. We both helped each other become whatever it is we are today.

“Can you not just leave it that?” he continued. “Must you persistently, year after year, decade after decade, blame me for everything…from the 2007 Solomon Islands tsunami to the dribble on your grandma’s chin?”

Marr responded with a brief tweet. “An ‘open letter’ hasn’t really been a thing since 1953,” he wrote. “It’s all ‘social media’ now. Even Donald J Trump had that one down. Also, this fake news business…a bit 2021 yeah ? #makingindiegreatagain.”

Had he elaborated, he would have probably explained that he never really wants to talk about Morrissey in interviews. It’s just that most everyone who interviews Marr brings up Morrissey at some point and asks him a direct question about the singer’s most recent scandalous public statement. Marr begrudgingly gives some sort of response, and it generates headlines. (We can tell you from personal experience, Marr would much rather speak about basically anything besides Morrissey when he’s being interviewed.)

“You found me inspirational enough to make music with me for six years,” Morrissey wrote midway through his missive. “If I was, as you claim, such an eyesore monster, where exactly did this leave you? Kidnapped? Mute? Chained? Abducted by cross-eyed extraterrestrials? It was YOU who played guitar on ‘Golden Lights’ — not me.”

That’s the only Smiths song that Morrissey calls out in his entire letter, and it’s a very odd one to highlight since it’s an obscure cover of a 1965 tune by English singer-songwriter Twinkle that originally appeared as a B side to “Ask.” Most hardcore Smiths fans consider it one of the worst tunes in their catalog. When Rolling Stone‘s Rob Sheffield ranked all 73 Smiths songs, he placed “Golden Lights” at number 67.

“For reasons nobody has ever explained, ‘Golden Lights’ got enshrined on the Louder Than Bombs compilation, so it’s earned its legend as a song fans love to hate,” he wrote, “although you have to give it bonus points for turning into such a hilarious disaster.”

Morrissey could have called out Marr’s work on “How Soon Is Now?,” “The Queen Is Dead,” “Panic,” “This Charming Man,” or any number of brilliant songs they wrote together. But he went with “Golden Lights.” Check it out above to see if Smiths fans are correct to hate on it so much.

Oh, and for those few remaining Smiths fans that still think a reunion is possible at some point, read Morrissey’s complete letter again. This is not a man about to let bygones be bygones and sign a $100 million deal with Live Nation for a worldwide reunion tour. He doesn’t even want Johnny Marr to utter his name aloud. Sharing the stage with him and their old buddies Mike and Andy is an impossible dream that is never, ever happening.
