2018 Screen Actors Guild Award nominations: Michael Stuhlbarg and Peter Dinklage could reap 3 bids each

Michael Stuhlbarg and Peter Dinklage are set to rule the Screen Actors Guild Awards this year, with a trio of nominations each, per Gold Derby’s odds.

Stuhlbarg is favored for a sole nomination for “Call Me by Your Name,” as well as a pair of nominations as part of the casts of that film, as well as in “The Shape of Water.” Stuhlbarg also appeared in a third film — “The Post” — that is a contender but he is ineligible to share in that prospective nomination because he was not billed on an individual “card” in its main on-screen credits. He is eligible only to receive an official certificate for his place in that film’s end credits roll. Stuhlbarg also appeared this year in “Fargo,” earning a Gold Derby Award nomination for Best TV Movie/Limited Supporting Actor.

The billing rules effectively take Alison Brie out of contention to lead nominations. Although she is billed tenth in “The Post” and fourth in “The Disaster Artist,” she is not officially eligible as she was billed simultaneously with Carrie Coon in the former and a slew of co-stars in the latter. She remains eligible individually for both and is being campaigned for the latter, but she is considered to be a longshot. On the television side, Brie contends as the lead of “GLOW,” which received nominations for Best Comedy Series and Best New Series at the first announced guild nominations, from the Writers Guild of America.

Dinklage is expected to score his fifth consecutive nomination for “Game of Thrones” and the ensemble of that show is expected to be nominated for the sixth time. Dinklage is predicted on the film side as part of the cast nomination for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Elisabeth Moss are favored for multiple wins as both the stars and as part of the cast of the comedy “Veep” and drama “The Handmaid’s Tale” respectively. Thirteen actors have odds that are better than 100/1 for multiple projects, with rankings in the odds in parentheses:
