These are all TV Movie/Mini-series and there’s no ensemble category for that
Aren’t they eligible in drama?
They are not. But even if they were, none of them would have gotten in. the casts of GOT, Stranger Things and Handmaid’s Tale act circles around the cast of Chernobyl. The acting in Chernobyl is not what actors like, the show is not character driven and this limits the performances making them cold and too restrained. SAG obviously did not liked Unbelievable very much since they chose the serviceable and small performance of Emily Watson over the masterclasses of acting giving by Wever and Dever. And the passion towards WTSU is weaker comparable with the Emmys, on the contrary Michael Kenneth Williams and Niecy Nash would have been here as well. Although, the Netflix factor could have helped them replace BLL.December 12, 2019 at 4:40 am #1203233310

Weren’t you the one so confident in its snub?
No, I was not actually. Before accusing, go back and read. I said THREE MONTHS AGO that the five nominees are going to be between seven shows: GoT, BLL, THT, Stranger Things, The Crown, Succession and This us. And I was right. I said that I am unable to predict which 2 of those 7 are not going to make it, but that I am certain that the two Netflix shows and THT will make it, I predicted those 3 and I was also right. I also told you that HBO is never getting 3 shows and I was right. My only mistake is that I never saw the snub for This is us (no one did), so I decided to keep just 1 HBO show and I stupidly kept Succession. Succession already screw me at the Emmys when I bought the passion for it and removed Ventimiglia for Strong, I still cannot forgive myself, this is really stupid mistake. After today, I will never ever going to predict Succession for anything acting wise. But if we are going to be specific, I was also right about HBO being the weakest here, I predicted the the snubs of Streep and the weakness of BLL, I only predicted Kidman, while everybody else here was sore that BLL will dominate like in its first season, which was delusional. I did predicted Dinklage. But I stay firm, he and the cast are not winning in a million years.
Why not? Didn’t Breaking Bad only ever win Ensemble on its final season? The same could happen to Thrones which has the same amount of support, if not more, from actors (regardless of the lack of wins, they have more nominations)… and Dinklage could win as the representative of the show, as usual. I’m not saying they’re definitely winning, but I believe this is their best shot ever!
This could have not been further from the truth. Breaking Bad was an acting darling, GoT has more nominated actors only because Breaking Bad story was centered between a small group of characters. They nominated everyone that had material with the exception of Dean Norris. Many strong performers from GoT were completely ignored, the most shocking being Charles Dance, Michelle Fairley, Sean Bean and Pedro Pascal. Breaking Bad won 9 acting awards for 3 different actors at the Emmys, GoT only won 4 for the same actor. Cranston won an individual SAG for BB for the penultimate season, Dinklage did not. BB managed to get an individual nomination for a second performer – Anna Gunn, GoT couldn’t. Your example do not apply.December 12, 2019 at 4:14 am #1203233292
Who was not predicting The Handmaid’s Tale for its first two seasons? Obviously, if it is nominated by every guild this season people will keep predict as well.
You haven’t keep up with the discussions here, on the contrary you have never said that. Luca is correct. People here always think that the show will be snub and always overperforms (in their eyes). They are constantly not predicting it… Now with SAG, most of the people commenting on the forum did not predicted either the show or Moss.
I made my prediction back in July and I still stay behind it, THT is a lock for Drama, Moss, Strahovski, Whitford, Bledel, Writing, Directing, Editing, Cinematography, Music and Costumes. With strong possibilities for Dowd, Fiennes, Brewer, Fagbenle, Dretzin and Meloni.December 11, 2019 at 3:44 pm #1203232505
I can’t wait for people to underpredict Handmaid’s at the Emmys once again when it’s been getting at almost every single guild. Praise be.
Yes, agree, one of my favorite things is watching the members of this forum realizing how they f*cked up their predictions once again because of THT.December 11, 2019 at 3:39 pm #1203232482
Or 4x Emmy winner Peter Dinklage can finally win on his last nomination for “Tyrion Lannister”. Game of Thrones also did not miss Ensemble. They received 10 acting nominations for their final season, they can also finally win Ensemble.

After This Is Us, Modern Family and Glee among many others won a dozen ensemble prizes, people are going to claim that network TV is underrepresented?
To quote you: “I have to laugh”. Glee and Modern Family were winning when streaming services did not existed, maybe only Netflix during its first year. This is us was the ONLY network drama in years to receive nominations and wins. What happened this year? Apple TV happened. Are you and the others blind?
I am not saying that networks shows are very good like Guest, but he is right about one thing, when a network show is good, it is MUCH MORE difficult for it to get in the conversation and to have success with awards. The biggest example will always be American Crime from ABC. If this show was on HBO, it would have won multiple Emmys and it would have 30 more nominations.December 11, 2019 at 8:40 am #1203231409
Lmao at the people who said Meryl is going to sweep.
Yeah, I cannot stop laughing. I told everyone that she was not sweeping and that she can even get snubbed for some awards in JULY, but no one believed me and everybody laughed at me. Who laughs last laughs best 😉 Streep is not going to win anything for BLL. She will be snub at TCA as well, and she can be snub at the Emmys, even if she is not, she is not winning. The second season of BLL is NOTHING like the first, and name recognition and star power is dead at TV awards from more than 7 years, but many of you do not seem to comprehend that.
The Morning Show guys can split votes leading the path to a David Harbour victory… which may finally put him in a very good spot for that very well deserved Emmy. His show also got into Ensemble so more points for him!
He will win, I correctly predicted his nomination and now I will correctly predict his win.December 11, 2019 at 8:19 am #1203231272
I just noticed this! I knew that “Pose” had a fight on its hands in Drama Ensemble, but no Billy Porter? Terrible, terrible snub!
Some of you write and act like newbies, SAG voters do not watch FX, there are very rare exceptions of course. Pose is not a SAG show, never had any chance, I thought that Porter can make it, because he won the Emy and he became a mainstream star, but they just do not watch Pose.
This is why they discover new shows faster now, they love the streaming services, but they still hate networks like FX.
Do SAG awards not do TV Supporting actress/actor? I can’t find that category.
They don’t.December 11, 2019 at 8:10 am #1203231208

Easy. SAG voters dislike or do not watch their shows. In the case of Unbelievable, I think that Wever was the sixth nominee.
Isn’t it like the same actors voting for both award shows though?
Yes and no, but mostly no.
SAG has 129 000 active members, almost all of them actors. The Emmys have 25 000 active members, but only 5 000 of them are actors, maybe even less, and can vote for the acting categories. Only elite and mostly working and successful actors vote at the Emmys, every single actor in the US can vote for SAG, so they have a clear taste and they go for more mainstream things.December 11, 2019 at 7:27 am #1203230925
Boring choices on tv side, as always. The biggest surprise for me is the Helen Mirren snub.
Not boring at all. And they name-check only if they do not like/watch anything worthy. I predicted Helen Mirren’s snub, in this TV peak era the name checks are going to disappear completely (they almost are).
How are Regina King and Merritt Wever so unlucky at SAG but lucky at the Emmys?
Easy. SAG voters dislike or do not watch their shows. In the case of Unbelievable, I think that Wever was the sixth nominee.December 11, 2019 at 7:23 am #1203230888
Where are all the stans of BLL now? Did I tell you that Streep is not happening? And all the people doubting King and Arquette? And Elisabeth Moss and THT? And Stranger things? I hope you have learned your lesson. Performances like the ones that King, Arquette, Moos and Jarome give are never going to be ignored by actors, never ever. And Streep was VERY FAR from that level. And the biggest critically acclaimed show in the world that runs on their favorite network either.
Their love towards The Morning Show was impossible to predict, because they are usually late to the party, but this time (and the last two years) they were not. This means that the actors simply dislike Successions. Period. I would never ever predict it for anything related with acting.
The This Is Us snub in Ensemble was impossible to predict, but it has to do with the bias towards network TV and the fact that only small % of the Guild votes for nominations.December 11, 2019 at 4:16 am #1203230367
HFPA just name-checked it
Enough with this mindless statement. If the HFPA has proved something over and over again is that they DO NOT care to snub anything in TV, they never “name-check”, if they do not care for you, they ignore you, they just humiliated the two bigger players in the last decade at the Emmys – Veep and GoT – precisely because of that, they do what they please, this is how I correctly predicted this decision of them (with the exception of the Harrington part, which is inexplicable, and not, it is not because there are no other options).December 9, 2019 at 7:19 am #1203226715
I told you 3 months ago that they would have completely shut out Veep and also GoT in series with a single acting nomination that would not have be Dinklage or Headey. But I would have never guessed that this sole acting nom would be Harrington, this is even weirder that them awarding Lady Gaga for AHS. Maybe Harrington is winning.
The shut out of WTSU is so gross and ugly that I cannot be happy about good things like King and Arquette, or Comer, or Succession. Sad.December 6, 2019 at 11:45 am #1203220265
Aniston is not fighting for the last spot lmao. She’s fresh, it’s her big return to TV, she’s in. Kidman, Zendaya and King are the ones fighting for the 2 last spots. Zendaya is a perfect Globesy nominee, but with the field too crowded and her show not getting series nod, she’ll struggle. But I actually believe it’s gonna be Kidman who misses especially if they nominate her on the film side for Bombshell. And I’m also not very confident in Comer either. They did not give her even a nod for S1 and I’m not saying that shows lack of support, I’m just saying that they might be pissed they weren’t the ones to recognize her first, and Killing Eve is most likely not getting a series nod either.
You are really convincing, I removed Kidman and I put Aniston back. If Killing Eve is getting back, Comer will too.
