Film Bitch Awards: Casting,Ensemble,Breakthrough,Young Actors

by Nathaniel R

We're still hoping to havethe Film Bitch Awardswrapped up before Oscar night.Tonight,the remaining "extra"acting categories.We've already sharedthe Best Cameo performancesso here's four more prizes to discuss and consider.Please do share your own favourites in these categories,too.

BEST CASTING / BEST ENSEMBLE
Some might argue that these categories go hand in hand (the way others object to the notion of Picture/Director splits) but we think of them as two different though highly complimentary accomplishments...

The 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

Megan Mullaly showing one of her dad's residual checks from SAGMegan Mullally served as host for the 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards with a droll,endearingly casual approach,often making Lady Gaga the brunt of good natured jokes.But as with most awards show she got out of the way very early.SAG is all awards and no frills.They even shortened the "I am an actor"intro this year,limiting it to just three people.There's no awards show that's faster than SAG but the continually nervous Oscar producers might want to consider,when trying to shorten their own ceremony,  that SAG is not even a fraction as popular as the Globes or Oscars,亚博主页both of which are considerably longer!

The winners and notes...

BEST ACTOR IN A TV COMEDYTony Shalhoub,The Marvelous Mrs Maisel
Tony Shalhoub has prepared nothing because,he suggests,his category was too great to think he'd win.This seems naive since he is an awards magnet.He probably has to wear protective gear whenever entering a ceremony,lest he be pummelled with statuettes of all kinds...

"Everyone was nominated....except you!"(Our annual SAG outrage)

by Nathaniel R

Pierre Png,who has a lot of scenes in CRAZY RICH ASIANS,was snubbed while his "replacement"for Gemma Chan's affection,who has about 2 seconds of screen time,was nominated!

We'll keep doing these posts each year until the Screen Actors Guild does something about their most unfortunate awards rule.For those who are new to the awards game,please note: If you are a working actor lucky enough to wind up in a film nominated for "Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture,"that doesn't mean you are included in the nomination;you have to have your own title card for that!What this means each year is that actors who aren't really famous yet,or don't have an aggressive agent,wind up left out of the official nomination even if they contributed immeasurably to the success of the film or were highly memorable in some way.

Read on for the specific exclusions this year and the history of most embarrassing omissions from the past due this ruling...

The SAG Nominations are Here

Awkwafina (Crazy Rich Asians) and Laverne Cox (Orange is the New Black) announced the nominations and joked about their height difference,while pronouncing all the names beautifully,being totally gorgeous,and staying enthusiastic about the whole damn thing.We thank them profusely because the ACTUAL nominations were among the worst we've ever seen in our long history of awards-watching and we might have experienced dry-heaving ourselves had we been forced to read them off.

Did the SAG nominating committees only screen 8 movies and 7 tv shows this year?

Screen Actors Guild rules make voting your conscience about who is supporting and lead impossible (the members are required to vote however the actor is campaigned by the studio) unless you are conscientous enough to justnotnominate the person if they are cheating...as we are when we vote on such things...but most nominators aren't.So this year we have even worse Category Fraud than usual -- there is barely a Supporting Actress category this year,at all,which is such a shame given all the worthy actual supporting female actors out there.

The nominations and some comments after the jump...

Gotham Nominations: "The Favourite"and "First Reformed" Lead

by Nathaniel R

It's the first official awards announcement of the season!The Gotham Awards,the East Coast's answer to the Independent Spirit Awards,have announced their nominations with the palace intrigue tragicomedyThe Favouriteand the existential heavy drama ofFirst Reformedsharing the lead with 3 matching honors each: Best Feature,Best Screenplay,and one acting citation (a special ensemble prize for the former and Ethan Hawke for the latter).One assumes that they'd have both been nominated for director,too,but one of the quirks of Gotham is that they don't have a Director category,only a category for brand new directors and we love the nominees there,especially Bo Burnham forEighth Gradeand Ari Aster forHereditary.

Other films receiving much needed good news since they were released before the fall glut and needed awards bodies to be reminded of them over the next few months:Leave No Trace,The Wife,Sorry to Bother You,andThe Rider.The complete nominations and a few more comments after the jump...
