Emily Blunt is the 2nd performer to get double-snubbed by the Oscars after double SAG Awards nominations

Poor Emily Blunt. After a stellar 2018 and earning Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations for “Mary Poppins Returns” and “A Quiet Place,” she failed to get an Oscar nomination Tuesday for either, becoming just the second double SAG nominee to go 0-2 with the academy.

Blunt follows in the dubious footsteps of Helen Mirren, who didn’t convert her SAG Awards bids for her 2015 films “Woman in Gold” and “Trumbo” into Oscar nominations. But at least Mirren was already a four-time Oscar nominee and a one-time winner (“The Queen,” 2006); Blunt is still waiting for her maiden bid.

The stats were on Blunt’s side. This was the 10th time a performer received two individual SAG Awards nominations. Besides Mirren, the other eight are:

1. Julianne Moore (1999): “The End of the Affair,” “Magnolia”

2. Judi Dench (2001): “Iris,” “The Shipping News”

3. Julianne Moore (2002): “Far From Heaven,” “The Hours”

4. Patricia Clarkson (2003): “The Station Agent,” “Pieces of April”

5. Jamie Foxx (2004): “Ray,” Collateral”

6. Leonardo DiCaprio (2006): “Blood Diamond,” “The Departed”

7. Cate Blanchett (2007): “Elizabeth: The Golden Age,” “I’m Not There”

8. Kate Winslet (2008): “Revolutionary Road,” “The Reader”

Three earned double bids at the Oscars: Moore (2002), Foxx and Blanchett; only Foxx won an Oscar, for “Ray.” Five got one Oscar nomination: Moore for “The End of the Affair”; Dench for “Iris”; Clarkson for “Pieces of April”; DiCaprio for “Blood Diamond”; and Winslet for “The Reader.” Winslet, of course, was bumped to lead at the Oscars after winning the Golden Globe and SAG Awards in supporting for “The Reader.”

Adding insult to injury, Blunt’s first SAG nomination for 2016’s “The Girl on the Train” didn’t translate to an Oscar nomination either.

Blunt was in sixth place in our Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress odds for “Mary Poppins Returns” and “A Quiet Place,” respectively, contending for the open fifth slot in both races. While she only had a SAG Award nomination for the latter, she also made the cut for the former at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards. However, she shockingly was MIA at her home turf, BAFTA, which opted for Viola Davis (“Widows”), signaling that support for her and “Mary Poppins Returns” was not that strong.

The fifth spot in both categories went to two “Roma” stars Yalitza Aparicio and Marina de Tavira. Aparicio is vying against Glenn Close (“The Wife”), Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”), Lady Gaga (“A Star Is Born”) and Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”). De Tavira’s Best Supporting Actress competition is Amy Adams (“Vice”), Regina King (“If Beale Street Could Talk”), Emma Stone (“The Favourite”) and Rachel Weisz (“The Favourite”).

“Mary Poppins Returns” received four nominations, Best Costume Design, Best Original Score, Best Original Song (“The Place Where Lost Things Go”) and Best Production Design. “A Quiet Place” is up for Best Sound Editing.
