SAG Ensemble Award is a weird category. This year they didn’t include Julia Stiles for ‘Silver Linings Playbook’. It’s ODD when they do this sometimes. The Ensemble for Million Dollar Baby was, according to SAG, just Morgan Freeman, Clint Eastwood and Hilary Swank. And what about the other actors in the movie???July 13, 2013 at 5:14 am #105830

Well the SAG rules say that only people who are credited alone get nominated unless the credits are alphabetical in blocks like a Woody Allen movie or they just have the credit roll at the end and the producers/studio say who gets submitted.
You should check the movies you put as examples and their credits.
I remember Julia Stiles, for example, wasn’t credited alone for Silver Linings, she was credited with other people. I remember when I saw the movie and the credits came up I thought “well, Julia Stiles isn’t getting a SAG nomination now”.
I don’t remember how Corey Stoll was credited for Midnight in Paris. I remember a lot of bloggers being upset about this one. He probably got credited after the usual alphabetical block of stars.
Calisa Flockhart is probably one of the craziest snubs. She wasn’t credited alone. Here’s the link for the opening http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qlDo1mgqTRQ That’s the simple and real explanation. This example early on in SAG’s history should’ve been enough to change the rule. A movie that actual won the award and an actress that had a main role in the film gets snubbed.
I understand that a lot of studios and producers might get greedy and include 20 people for an ensemble award (Traffic), but SAG could have a commitee/process for this like the Oscars do with producers. This could prevent people like Gwen Stefani getting nominated for a 5 second scene and maybe one line, while others with bigger roles who were also big names (Frances Conroy) don’t get a nomination.July 14, 2013 at 8:19 am #105834

And I know that the reason for its shutout had more to do with bad campaigning and the members missing their screeners, but I think that it’s a slight shame that Django Unchained missed out here.
