9 SAG TV nominations we didn’t see coming: ‘Ozark’ cast, Jonathan Banks…

As usual, Gold Derby users were collectively right about most of this year’s SAG Awards nominations for TV, accurately predicting 31 out of 40 mentions across eight categories (not including Best Stunt Ensemble). However, some of the names and titles that were revealed on January 11 threw us for a loop. Scroll down to see the biggest surprises, and check out the complete list of nominees here.

In all, one cast and eight single performers surprised us by earning spots in the SAG TV lineup of nominees. Among dramas, we thought “House of the Dragon” would receive an ensemble bid for its premiere season, but the acting guild threw a third bone to the “Ozark” team for their farewell performances. Julia Garner also took us slightly off guard by picking up her third individual nomination for the Netflix crime series.

We also did not expect 2019 Best Comedy Actress recipient Rachel Brosnahan (“The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) to make her second post-win return, or for Anthony Carrigan to be recognized for his performance on “Barry” over his previously nominated castmate, Henry Winkler. Jonathan Banks defied our odds as well by finally achieving a solo notice for “Better Call Saul” after six seasons, plus a preceding four as the same character on “Breaking Bad.”
