While Meryl Streep has more SAG film nominations than anyone else with 16, Edie Falco blows that number away with her record-setting 21st nod on Wednesday. All of Falco's bids have been for her television work, and she is nodded as Best TV Comedy Actress once again for "Nurse Jackie." She already has five trophies on her shelf for "The Sopranos."

The Screen Actors Guild, which numbers more than 100,000, has been bestowing competive awards since 1994. However, despite the actors branch making up 20% of the 6,000 Oscar voters, only two-thirds of SAG champs have won over the academy as well. Compare that to the 90% success rate of the Directors Guild of America at presaging which helmer will prevail at the Oscars.

Just as with the Oscars, Meryl Streep continues to break her own record for most film nominations at the Screen Actors Guild awards. For the upcoming 21st annual edition of these kudos, she earned another as Best Film Supporting Actress for "Into the Woods." That brings her career total for film bids to 15 (she has one for her TV work as well) but has only prevailed once on the film front -- for her leading performance in "Doubt" (2008).

We awards nuts are always looking for trends to slice and dice. So, when the SAG Awards only foresaw 14 of the eventual 20 Oscar nominees for acting both last year and in 2012, we wondered if this bellwether wasn't ringing so true anymore.

Historically, we had counted on these kudos for presaging upwards of 17 of the one score of performers that reaped Oscar bids. Has the merger of the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) with the American Federation of Radio and Television Artists (AFTRA) changed the composition of the nominating committee enough that it no longer mirrors that of the acting branch at the academy?

The SAG Award nominations for TV shows and performers went mostly as we predicted. However, as always, there were a number of surprises, which meant some of the contenders we were expecting to be nominated were left out in the cold. 

And because SAG combines lead and supporting performances on the TV side (it doesn't do this for the film folk), the competition was intense. (Read about who did make the cut here.)

Below, the lists of those programs and performers who won't be in the running on Jan. 25 at the 21st annual edition of these kudos.

Shocking SAG Awards snubs: Jessica Chastain, Amy Adams, Bradley Cooper, ...

Missing from the list of SAG Award nominations were some notable stars, including Bradley Cooper ("American Sniper"), David Oyelowo ("Selma"), Jessica Chastain ("Interstellar," "A Most Violent Year") and Amy Adams ("Big Eyes").

"Selma" was probably ignored because DVD screeners could not be sent to the nominating committee due to production delays on the film. (Read more.) Cooper may have gotten skunked because he wasn't available to attend many Q&A screenings on the west coast while rehearsing for his role in "The Elephant Man" on Broadway. Votes for Chastain may have split between her two contending movies.

See some of the other most significant snubs below.

Don't write off "Selma" at the Academy Awards just because David Oyelowo, Tom Wilkinson and cast got snubbed at the SAG Awards. That probably occurred because DVD screeners could not be sent out to the 2,100 members of the Screen Actors' Guild nominating committee in time thanks to production delays on the film. Some voters did see industry screenings of "Selma," but not all.
