Shocking SAG Awards (TV) snubs: Kerry Washington, Jessica Lange, Martin Freeman …

The SAG Award nominations for TV shows and performers went mostly as we predicted. However, as always, there were a number of surprises, which meant some of the contenders we were expecting to be nominated were left out in the cold. 

And because SAG combines lead and supporting performances on the TV side (it doesn’t do this for the film folk), the competition was intense. (Read about who did make the cut here.)

  1. Jessica Lange is terrible this season of American Horror Story. The fact that she is not nominated makes me happy and makes me applaud the Sag.

  2. Not surprised about Kerry Washingto. Sha can not act. I am shocked howeve, that Te Good Wife, Jessica Lange and The Blacklist were not nominated

  3. Although I like plot or storyline of season 1&2 more. Considering only act/performance, Jessica lange should be nominated. IMO, Her performance still look good.
