2018 SAG Awards Largely Ignore SFF

At Sunday’s 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, nearly all of the many genre nominees lost. The two exceptions were in the movie and TV stuntwork categories:

Motion Picture Awards

Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture

  • “Wonder Woman” *WINNER

Television Awards

Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Television Series

  • “Game of Thrones” *WINNER

As Syfy Wire opined:

With Hollywood’s actors failing to recognize the work of their genre-indulging colleagues, the Oscars – whose nominations are set to be announced this Tuesday – are shaking up to be some of the most interesting for the geekier side of movies because these last awards reminded fans that genre productions are almost always underdogs during awards season.

One thought on “2018 SAG Awards Largely Ignore SFF

  1. SAGers are very conservative in who gets the big Awards so nothing here surprises me. They remind me most strongly of the kvetchers about Star Trek Discovery who keep complaining that series isn’t adhering to canon which is a way of saying this isn’t the Trek I remember. SAG voters have their own idea by land large of what is proper and genre shows usually don’t get included.

    Oh Mad Max: Fury Road can win for Stunt Ensemble, something GoT did too IIRC but Best Dramatic Series? As Roger Rabbit said, ‘Oh Pleassse!’
