Manchester By The Sea leads the way in SAG awards
A drama about a working class family dealing with multiple tragedies has been nominated for four Screen Actors Guild awards.
The nods for Kenneth Lonergan’s Manchester By The Sea included those for lead actor Casey Affleck, supporting stars Michelle Williams and Lucas Hedges and for best ensemble cast.
Barry Jenkins’ coming of age film Moonlight and Denzel Washington’s Fences had three nominations each.
La La Land may have hit the right notes for the Golden Globes but it missed out on a nomination in the SAG’s coveted best ensemble cast category.
The candy-coloured musical gained nominations only for its lead stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.
In the lead actress category, Emily Blunt was nominated for her role in The Girl On The Train but Annette Bening failed to get a nod for 20th Century Women.
Lead actors nominated were Affleck, Gosling, Andrew Garfield for Hacksaw Ridge, Denzel Washington for Fences and Viggo Mortensen for Captain Fantastic.
The SAG awards, which will be presented in Los Angeles on 29 January, have previously been a good tip for who will be nominated in the four Oscar acting categories.
