Barbenheimer reigned supreme in film nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which were announced on Wednesday morning by Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani. “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” led all films with four nominations each in the six film categories, with “Barbie” scoring a stunt nomination to go with three acting nods and “Oppenheimer” landing all four of its noms in the acting categories.

Nominations in the SAG ensemble category, which was once considered a prerequisite for Oscar success, were “Barbie,” “Oppenheimer,” “American Fiction,” “Killers of the Flower Moon” and “The Color Purple.” That result that put the Screen Actors Guild pretty much in lockstep with other nominations this season.

In the television categories, “Succession” led with five nominations, including three of the five slots in the lead actor category (though Jeremy Strong was not recognized), while the troika of “The Bear,” “The Last of Us” and “Ted Lasso” picked up four nominations each.

Most notable in the lineup were some of the surprises: Penelope Cruz made her first major showing of the year with her fierce performance in Michael Mann’s “Ferrari”; Sterling K. Brown received a surprise nom for his scene-stealing work in “American Fiction,” helping to tie that film with “Killers of the Flower Moon” with three nominations, second only to “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer”; and both Annette Bening and Jodie Foster were recognized for “Nyad.”

Among those notably not included this year: Leonardo DiCaprio in Martin Scorsese’s “Killers of the Flower Moon,” Mark Ruffalo in Yorgos Lanthimos’ “Poor Things” (though costars Emma Stone and Willem Dafoe were both recognized), and America Ferrera in “Barbie,” which seemed like the ideal performance (complete with instantly-legendary monologue) deemed to get SAG voters excited.

But perhaps the most stinging snub was the complete absence of Todd Haynes’ “May December” in all categories. Julianne Moore and Charles Melton have been riding high on nominations and buzz this year, especially the latter who has even picked up various critics’ prizes.

Typically, about 80% of the SAG nominees go on to receive Oscar nominations. Last year, 15 of the 20 individual acting nominees were also recognized by the Academy: five out of five in Best Supporting Actress and four out of five in Best Actor, but only three out of five in Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor.

Every Oscar Best Picture winner between 1996 and 2016 was previously nominated for the SAG ensemble award, giving the ensemble nod an air of invincibility. But that streak ended in 2016, and only three SAG ensemble nominees have won in the last six years. (One of those was last year’s SAG and Oscar winner, “Everything Everywhere All at Once.”)

In TV, all three leads of “Only Murders in the Building” — Steve Martin, Martin Short and Selena Gomez — failed to be recognized individually, although the series still received an ensemble nominee. “The Crown” also didn’t show much clout with voters, though Elizabeth Debicki’s Golden Globe-winning turn as Princess Diana managed a nomination.

Other surprises included Uzo Aduba being recognized for her work in the Netflix miniseries “Painkiller,” and HBO’s “The Gilded Age” getting recognition for its massive ensemble, despite rarely getting noticed outside of design elements at other awards ceremonies.
