    Last year, the Oscars nominated seventeen of the twenty performances
    nominated for Screen Actors Guild Awards and they nominated all five of SAG’s
    Best Ensemble nominees for Best Picture. 
    This overlap is standard because of the shared voters between the groups,
    so SAG has a reputation as the ultimate Oscar precursor.  SAG has forecast as many as nineteen
    Oscar-nominated performances, but this year predicted only thirteen for the first
    time in nineteen years—since the third SAG Awards.  The nature of the discrepancies is
    unprecedented in recent history; SAG must be seriously re-evaluated as a
    reliable Oscar prognosticator.  Similarly,
    only two Best Ensembles became Best Picture nominees this year, a new low in
    the seven years in which there have been eight to ten Best Picture nominees.

    Oscar-nominated performances that were snubbed by SAG have historically
    fit three templates:

    First, SAG does not duly consider late releases because SAG votes a
    month earlier than the Oscars.  Bradley
    Cooper (American Sniper, 2014) and eventual winner Christoph Waltz (Django
    Unchained
    , 2012) were burned at SAG by Christmas openings.  Late momentum this season explains the Oscar nominations
    for Jennifer Lawrence (Joy), Sylvester Stallone (Creed) and Jennifer Jason
    Leigh (The Hateful Eight).

    Next, SAG nominations are
    decided by committees instead of the entire membership.  This ensures that voters screen a variety of
    films, leveling the field for standout acting in films that lack buzz.  At the Oscars, it seems that some lead acting
    contenders have such buzz that viewing their films becomes a top priority, so their
    supporting players enjoy heightened exposure over standout work in smaller films.  This season, Best Actor frontrunner Leonardo
    DiCaprio (The Revenant, also a late release) has pulled in supporting actor Tom Hardy at the last
    minute.  Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine,
    2013) and Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook, 2012) respectively rode the
    coattails of Best Actress winners Cate Blanchett and Jennifer Lawrence.

    Finally, the Oscars and SAG have different balloting systems.  SAG tallies the names that are cited most;
    Oscar ballots are preferential and favor pockets of passionate support.  Foreign-language and divisive arthouse films prevail
    over crowd-pleasers more often at the Oscars than SAG.  Examples include Marion Cotillard (Two Days,
    One Night
    ) and Joaquin Phoenix (The Master, 2012).  Charlotte Rampling (45 Years, also a late release) joins the group
    this year; her critically-acclaimed work had such limited exposure that she was
    snubbed by BAFTA on her home turf.

    In the seven years of the modern Oscar era (in which the Best Picture field
    is expanded), these three explanations have accounted for twenty-six of the
    twenty-nine discrepancies between SAG and the Oscars, with Quvenzhané Wallis (Beasts of the Southern Wild) being ineligible.  The two outliers are this year’s Best Actor
    nominee Matt Damon (The Martian) and Best Supporting Actor nominee Mark Ruffalo
    (Spotlight).

    It is unthinkable that contenders of this calibre could have scored
    Oscar nominations without SAG nominations first.  These men are proven SAG favorites and star
    in Best Picture frontrunners.  Like
    seventeen of the twenty SAG nominees this year, their films opened in October
    or November.  The Martian grossed $600
    million worldwide; Spotlight was nominated by SAG for best ensemble—these films
    were extremely visible.  Nominations at
    SAG actually should have been easier than at the Oscars because of SAG’s bias
    toward early and widely-seen contenders.

    Copying or tweaking the SAG nominations was a wise Oscar prediction
    strategy previously, but it would be foolish in light of the Pandora’s box
    opened by Matt Damon and Mark Ruffalo.  Next
    year’s SAG nominations must be taken with an extra grain of salt to account for
    randomness.

    The fact that SAG Ensemble only matched BP 2/5 almost seems like a fluke. Did SAG voters just name check DiCaprio without actually seeing The Revenant? Hard to believe BONN got in but not that. Straight Outta Compton was also pretty close I’d wager to BP. I think this mismatch is probably most likely due to this being the first time in a while that Oscar and other voters have really spread out their love (17 films nominated in major categories, quite a few more nommed in major categories at other precursors). 

    The thing that really throws this all for a loop though (and Riley you’re so right about this) is The Martian. A film that seemed destined for a SAG ensemble nod, and of course a performance that they should have eaten up, both snubbed without good reason.  

    The Ruffalo SAG snub is eye-raising as well, though maybe it has more to do with BONN overperforming there (but then how do you explain Tremblay? Maybe it goes back to the spreading the wealth idea, there were about 10 supporting actors who could all have realistically made it into the Oscar line up.).

    So yeah, I do think we should be more careful about using SAG. But on the whole I have wonder if this year is sort of an outlier.

    Does anyone know who’s this year’s Social media ambassador? 

    It’s great that they ask all types of actors in SAG community to present these awards, and not only big stars. 
    Eliminating people like McAdams, Elba, Mitchell etc since they will only present the segments from their own movies; we still have 7 more ”award presenters” to get. Hope the trend will continue, and we will see more lesser-known names on the list. It will be so interesting to see Larson&Tremblay presenting an award. Wonder how they can pull that off.

    Their presenters, their clips, their intros, their simplicity. SAG Awards are definitely the best award show for award junkies. It’s a shame that their winners are always turn out to be the complete opposite of best.

    I am so glad that Sarandon and Wiig are going to be there. I’d really like to see either one give an acceptance speech, but Queen Latifah is far and away the favorite in their category, so watch her win and not be there.

    I am also very happy to see that Hawkins, Jackson, and Mitchell will be there, likely to introduce the Straight Outta Compton ensemble nomination. It looks like Elba from Beasts of No Nation and Spotlight will be well represented, so I am really curious who from the well-known ensembles of The Big Short and Trumbo will actually show up for their introductions. I still remember the year that only Dev Patel was there from The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and how sad that looked.
