Shocking SAG Awards snubs: Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, …

Missing from the list of SAG Award nominations were some notable stars, including Bradley Cooper (“American Sniper“), David Oyelowo (“Selma“), Jessica Chastain (“Interstellar,” “A Most Violent Year”) and Amy Adams (“Big Eyes“).

Selma” was probably ignored because DVD screeners could not be sent to the nominating committee due to production delays on the film. (Read more.) Cooper may have gotten skunked because he wasn’t available to attend many Q&A screenings on the west coast while rehearsing for his role in “The Elephant Man” on Broadway. Votes for Chastain may have split between her two contending movies.

See some of the other most significant snubs below.

  1. is shoking the fact that Jennifer Aniston got nomminated when Hilary Swabk or Shailine Woodley dosent i ment they are hundrer times better

  2. The lack of nominations for Selma shouldn’t be shocking–we all knew they hadn’t gotten their screeners out in enough time. Take out Jake G. in Actor, Duvall in Supporting Actor and Watts in Supporting Actress. Put in Oyelowo, Wilkinson and Ejogo and you have your likely Oscar nominations. As for Interstellar, lol… come on. None of those individual performances are even in the conversation.

  3. I cant really agree or disagree with Jennifer’s A. nomination, because I haven’t seen “Cake” but for what I understand is actually a really good performance, I know we all know her as a comedian actress, but I will give her the benefit of the doubt. It is a shame Marion Cotillard didn’t get a nomination, but is really hard for actors in foreign films to get nominated.
    David Oyelowo snub, isn’t really a snub, for what I understand most of the Sag member haven’t seen Selma.
    Is anyone even shock that Bradley Cooper didn’t get nomination? I would have been shock if he got one.

  4. Who is actually surprised by these picks? Not me. I thought Into the Woods would get a nomination, but honestly the trailers have underwhelmed me. Aniston is the only surprise really for me.

  5. For me, Marion Cotillard’s snub for either Two Days, One Night and The Immigrant is the most shameful among this year’s Oscar snubs. Shocking? No way. But shameful as hell.

  6. Shock #1: “Into the Woods” cast not nominated but “The Theory of Everything” was? There are only two actors in the latter movie who are memorable. Crazy! At least Meryl Streep was recognized.
    Shock #2: No Marion Cotillard? What does this woman have to do to be recognized? Not cool.
    Hopefully, the Golden Globe noms and the Oscars will get it right but who knows?

  7. I loved Naomi Watts a Russian lady of the night in St Vincent and figured an award nomination or two for that. Also was impressed with Jennifer Aniston years ago in The Good Girl, she and Jake G. deserved awards for that very cool movie, one which still resonates today. The only surprise with this Cake best actress nom is that an award committee got over their bias against “TV” actors and personnel.

  8. I am aware that the SAG awards have not been around as long as The Oscars but has any movie gone on to WIN the Academy Award (for Best Pic)
    after getting snubbed by the Screen Actors Guild?
