If you had just one wish for the SAG TV Awards to nominate a specific performance you passionately loved but don’t think will be recognized, what performance would it be? You can call locks like Gary Oldman “Darkest Hour” any day, but who’s your #1 underdog you would use your wish for?
I would pick Tatiana Maslany for Stronger. I think she delivered a hell of an emotional powerhouse in that role, and she more than transcended the mere “long-suffering female supporting her man” I was expecting. She is truly a co-lead in the film, it is her story every bit as much as it is Jake Gyllenhaal’s character Jeff Bauman.September 25, 2017 at 3:07 am #1202222874
I would agree with you that Maslany is just as luminous as Gyllenhaal. Even though she carries herself with a more restrained demeanor, she is still very moving in her role. Gyllenhaal still gives the stronger (pun intended) performance. he absolutely disappears beneath the skin of Jeff Bauman. In a career full of transformative roles, this is probably his most raw in years emotionally. But Maslany is nearly as good in this film. Both are worthy of nominations and then some.September 25, 2017 at 1:25 pm #1202223237
This has zero chance of happening, but I would be THRILLED if Charlie Hunnam somehow got a Best Actor nomination for The Lost City Of Z.September 25, 2017 at 1:39 pm #1202223247
I preferred Richardson to Maslany.
Betty Buckley showing up for Split would be all sorts of amazing.
OSCAR FLASHBACK: Nicholson at the Oscars (1985) – Prizzi’s Honor
Better than James Mcavoy? What was so amazing about Betty Buckley? I’m genuinely curious, hope you don’t mind my asking.September 25, 2017 at 2:59 pm #1202223285
James Franco For the disaster artist. I want that to happen. Also Michael Shannon for TSOW, which by now I kinda want him to win. But,
I really won’t be shocked he gets again with no precursors (IMO Shannon should have won against Ali)

Aubrey Plaza, Ingrid Goes West
It’s the kind of left field nomination SAG would do if this category weren’t so crowded.September 25, 2017 at 6:41 pm #1202223473
Bill Skarsgard for ItSeptember 26, 2017 at 5:38 am #1202223772
Bria Vinaite for The Florida ProjectSeptember 30, 2017 at 11:31 am #1202227136
Right now. Jennifer Lawrence in mother!
I saw her performance and I cried the whole time at the end.September 30, 2017 at 1:34 pm #1202227181
Sight unseen I’d say Sam Rockwell for Three Billboards since he’s deserved a nom for years and I am once again getting my hopes up. As far as things I’ve actually seen, I’d love for Michelle Phieffer to get rescued from the smoldering wreckage of mother!’s awards chances and would also appreciate some love for Michael Fassbender’s incredible work in Alien: CovenantSeptember 30, 2017 at 9:59 pm #1202227387
It would have to be Danielle McDonald in Patti Cake$ for meOctober 1, 2017 at 3:53 am #1202227482
Michelle Pfeiffer for Murder on the Orient ExpressOctober 15, 2017 at 3:06 pm #1202237822
For films I have seen already: Bria Vinaite for The Florida Project (: Lead or Supporting, she’s borderline for either category, and she is phenomenal! (:
I would also love to see Battle of the Sexes nominated for Best Ensemble – Emma Stone, Steve Carell, Sarah Silverman, Andrea Riseborough, the actor who plays Larry King (Billie’s husband), Elisabeth Shue (magnificent as Mrs. Riggs), Bill Pullman (as Jack Kramer), and everyone else give amazing wonderful performances (:October 15, 2017 at 3:23 pm #1202237827
