SAG Award Nominations: Schitt's Creek and The Crown Lead the TV Pack; Bridgerton and Michaela Coel (!) Among First-Timers

Nominations for the 27th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced on Thursday morning by Lily Collins (Emily in Paris) and Daveed Diggs (Snowpiercer).

Schitt’s Creek and The Crown led the TV field with five nominations apiece. Ozark netted four nods, followed by Dead to Me with three.

New series making the cut include Netflix’s Bridgerton (making up for Wednesday’s Golden Globes snub), HBO Max’s The Flight Attendant, HBO’s Lovecraft Country, Hulu’s The Great and Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso.

Speaking of Globes omissions heard ’round the world, SAG succeeded where GG conspicuously failed with regard to Michaela Coel: The I May Destroy You star/auteur was nominated by her peers in the Miniseries Actress category.

This Is Us’ Sterling K. Brown, meanwhile, repeated as broadcast-TV’s lone nomination.

The 2021 SAG Awards will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on Sunday, April 4 at at 9 pm ET/6 pm PT. Traditionally held in mid- to late January, the SAG Awards — because of pandemic-related considerations — were at first postponed to March 14, and then bumped even later by a conflict with the Grammys. (In turn, SAG extended its eligibility period for movies and TV programs by two months, through to Feb. 28.)
