Once the nominees were revealed for the 2022 Screen Actors Guild Awards, our forum posters (many of whom are industry insiders) were quick to share their thoughts about the television performances included and those that were ignored. In particular, users celebrated the solid showings by the performers from “Succession” and “Ted Lasso” and lamented the shutouts of the “Insecure” and “Pose” actors. Arguments also resulted from beloved limited series “Mare of Easttown” receiving a few questionable notices.
Below is just a sampling of our readers’ brutally honest SAG Awards reactions to the nominees in the nine TV categories. Take a look, then join in if you’re brave enough. The film and TV awards will be handed out on February 27 during a live show that will be simulcast on TBS and TNT. No host has yet been announced. Gold Derby’s predictions center is open, so make your first picks right now.
