The biggest overall scorers were in the television segment of the awards, with Succession and Ted Lasso picking up five nods each. And South Korean drama Squid Game made history by becoming the first non-English language and the first Korean series to score a nomination at the SAG Awards.

Among the films, Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci and Jane Campion’s Power of the Dog led the pack with three nominations each.

House of Gucci, which is about a real-life murder that shook the iconic fashion family, was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture along with Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role for Jared Leto, who played Paolo Gucci in the film.

The highlight for the film was Lady Gaga’s nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role. The Grammy award winner has received critical praise for her portrayal of Patrizia Reggiani, the central figure in the sordid saga that hit the family.

Belfast, CODA, Don’t Look Up and King Richard with House of Gucci were the five nominees for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

As for Campion’s dark western Power of the Dog, the film was nominated for individual acting honours. Benedict Cumberbatch was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role. Kodi Smit-McPhee and Kirsten Dunst were nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role, respectively.

Power of the Dog was one of the two big winners among films at the recently concluded Golden Globes. Campion won the award for Best Director of a Motion Picture, Smit-McPhee won the Best Supporting Actor award, and the film itself was awarded Best Motion Picture — Drama.

In what is being termed a surprise snub, Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story, which was the other big winner at the Golden Globes with three awards, received just one nomination — Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for Ariana DeBose.

Boardroom drama Succession and acclaimed sports comedy Ted Lasso were nominated for the Best Ensemble in their respective categories — Drama and Comedy.

Actors of both series also won individual nominations. Succession has three nominations in Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series, while Ted Lasso has two in Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series. Sarah Snook from Succession and Juno Temple from Ted Lasso received nominations in Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series, respectively.

But Succession’s biggest challenge comes from Squid Game, the other notable major nominee in the television categories.

Besides Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, the show is also nominated in Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series category.

Lead actor Lee Jung-jae was nominated for best actor in the drama series, competing with the three Succession actors and Billy Crudup who has been nominated for The Morning Show.

Among the best female actors in drama, HoYeon Jung was nominated for Squid Game. She is up against Snook, Elizabeth Moss for The Handmaid’s Tale, and Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon for The Morning Show.

Mare of Easttown was nominated in Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series along with Squid Game, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki and Cobra Kai.  

Its key actors — Kate Winslet, Jean Smart and Evan Peters — all received acting nods.
