How many of the SAG/Globe nominees will reap Oscar bids?

Like last year, 17 film performances were recognized with both Screen Actors Guild and Golden Globe nominations. But four of those were snubbed by the Oscars.

How many of this year’s double dippers, as listed below, are likely to three-peat with an Oscar nomination?

BEST ACTOR
Bruce Dern, “Nebraska”
Chiwetel Ejiofor, “12 Years a Slave”
Tom Hanks, “Captain Phillips”
Matthew McConaughey, “Dallas Buyers Club”

BEST ACTRESS
Cate Blanchett, “Blue Jasmine”
Sandra Bullock, “Gravity”
Judi Dench, “Philomena”
Meryl Streep, “August: Osage County”
Emma Thompson, “Saving Mr. Banks”

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR
Barkhad Abdi, “Captain Phillips”
Daniel Brühl, “Rush”

Jared Leto, “Dallas Buyers Club”

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS
Jennifer Lawrence, “American Hustle”
Lupita Nyong’o, “12 Years a Slave”
Julia Roberts, “August: Osage County
June Squibb, “Nebraska”

Last year, all 10 of the SAG lead nominees also reaped Globe bids (remember, there are twice as many Globe lead nominees as they have both drama and comedy/musical categories.) Of these, seven went on to earn Oscar nominations. The exceptions: 

John Hawkes (“The Sessions”) was knocked out of the Best Actor race by Joaquin Phoenix, who had been a Globe nominee for “The Master.”

Two past Best Actress Oscar champs — Marion Cotillard (“Rust and Bone”) and Helen Mirren (“Hitchcock”) — were passed over by the academy in that category to make room for Emmanuelle Riva (“Amour”) and Quvenzhané Wallis (“Beasts of the Southern Wild”); Wallis had been ineligible at SAG. 

Seven of the SAG supporting nominees also earned Globe nominations. Of these, six also picked up Oscar bids; the exception:  

Best Actress Oscar winner Nicole Kidman for her supporting performance in “The Paperboy” was edged out at the Oscars by fellow Aussie Jacki Weaver (“Silver Linings Playbook”).

Of last year’s four Oscar champs, Christoph Waltz (“Django Unchained”) had been snubbed by SAG but won the Supporting Actor Globe while lead winners Daniel Day-Lewis (“Lincoln”) and Jennifer Lawrence (“Silver Linings Playbook”) and supporting actress Anne Hathaway (“Les Misérables”) had prevailed at both precursor awards. 

Last year, all five Film Ensemble SAG nominees contended in one of the two Best Picture races at the Globes. Of these, only “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” failed to reap a Best Picture bid at the Oscars. “Argo,” “Les Misérables,” “Lincoln” and “Silver Linings Playbook” all contended for the top prize, with “Argo” winning. 

Only two of the SAG Film Ensemble nominees — “American Hustle” and “12 Years a Slave” — reaped Picture bids at the Globes. Is one of these the likely Oscar winner for Best Picture. Vote below using our easy drag-and-drop menu.

  1. Those replacing are from one or more of the following:
    1) Best Picture nominees or prominent films
    2) late screenings
    3) studios’ late but strong campaigns.

  2. Forgot to mention:
    4) A co-lead not nominated for GG or SAG, if re-campaigned as supporting by the studio, becomes a strong Oscar contender in the supporting category.
