Meryl Streep breaks own record with 16th SAG Awards nomination for ‘Into the Woods’

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).

Among the other interesting facts and figures among film nominees: 

Benedict Cumberbatch and Edward Norton have the most nominations (3) of anyone this year. Cumberbatch has “The Imitation Game” (individual and ensemble) and “Sherlock: His Last Vow” (individual). Norton has “Birdman” (individual and ensemble) and “The Grand Budapest Hotel” (ensemble)

Only three of this year’s 20 film acting nominees are first-timers at SAG: Felicity Jones (“The Theory of Everything“), Keira Knightley (“The Imitation Game“), and Edward Norton (“Birdman“).

In the lead film categories, four nominees are previous SAG winners: Jennifer Aniston (“Cake“), Steve Carell (“Foxcatcher“), Julianne Moore (“Still Alice“), and Reese Witherspoon (“Wild“).

In the supporting film categories, three nominees are previous SAG winners: Robert Duvall (“The Judge“), Emma Stone (“Birdman”), and Streep.

Every lead and supporting SAG film winner in the past 20 years has also received an Oscar nomination for the same performance.
