    Most truly independent films made in the US are made outside of SAG. 

    Had the film been SAG sanctioned, it likely couldn’t have been made because of the extra expense.

    They do have the option of now retroactively paying the cast more, but because of the relatively small profit the film has made, I can see why this doesn’t make sense.

    SAG is totally correct in doing this – the Screen Actors’ Guild awards should be for SAG actors (or those foreign films sanctioned by similar guilds).   

    Beasts also likely will be WGA ineligible. I believe DGA does permit non-guild nominees, but Zeitlin himself by this time may be a member.

    I can’t see this ruining the whole awards process for this film. Wallis has a lot of buzz and quite potentialy a win at Globes for Drama if Jennifer Lawrence is in Comedy/Musical. As for SAG I think it’s Lawrence Vs Overdue Cotillard. Dwight Henry however could suffer not being at SAG, but ask yourself how much SAG helped Armie Hammer or Leo DiCaprio last year. I thinks it’s about buzz, reviews and campaigning, not as much who else awarded you.

    I can’t imagine the groupies at the HFPA giving Wallis the award unless she (unlikely) scores heavily with critics groups. Frankly, I’ll be surprised if they even nominate her. She brings nothing to their ratings, particularly their foreign ones, which along with their access to studio perks and being seen as a precursor to the Oscars is all they care about.

    I also don’t think Wallis will be an Oscar nominee.

    This has nothing to do with merit, just award reality.

    No biggie. She wouldn’t have been nominated anyway.

    Really? Did your contact from Tralfamadore tell you that?

    I still think Wallis is safe for a nomination despite this. Her buzz is just very much existing. If anything, it hurts Dwight Henry more since it’s the SAG who’s more open to nomination character actors who are not mainstream stars (Melissa Leo in Frozen River, John Hawkes in WInter’s Bone, Richard Jenkins in The Visitor), so while I still think he’s in the top ten, he’ll now struggle to make the top five.

    She is very good in the film, but not good enough to be in my top 5 ( for the oscars )
