Well, looks like the Screen Actors Guild remembered these seasons of Orange Is the New Black and House of Cards. The SAG Awards for the 23rd annual outing were announced by Common and Sophia Bush and predictably featured the Veep, Julia-Louis Dreyfus and The People v. O.J. Simpson love, but there were plenty of surprising choices by the members of SAG-AFTRA. Looks like Netflix really came through promoting to actors.
Let's get into it, shall we.
Bryce Dallas Howard, Black Mirror
Howard's Black Mirror performance was haunting and will make you rethink your love of Instagram
Orange Is the New Black
Shut out at the Golden Globes and Emmys last year, OITNB came back with a nomination for Uzo Aduba (deserved) and the show's ensemble, but what's really surprising is it's still in the comedy category here.
Grace & Frankie
It pays to be a legend. Not only is Lily Tomlin being honored with the Lifetime Achievement prize, but she and her Grace & Frankie costar Jane Fonda picked up nods, displacing some serious comedy heavyweights.
Ellie Kemper and Tituss Burgess, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
We're only surprised they're nominated because the Golden Globes completely snubbed them.
Double the Sterling K. Brown
Now this makes sense. Brown picked up nominations for his role in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and This Is Us.
Who knew the period drama was still eligible?
Lauren Graham, Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
Another batch of awards show nominations, another snub for Graham and the Gilmore Girls revival. Did other actors not watch Graham and costar Kelly Bishop turn in career-defining performances or what?
SAG embraced fantasy and sci-fi, but what happened to the sexy Scottish drama?
Rachel Bloom, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Girl can get a Golden Globe but not a SAG nomination? Same can be said for Gina Rodriguez and Issa Rae.
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
The show's ensemble didn't make the cut.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Black Mirror
We know the SAG voters watched some Black Mirror because Bryce Dallas Howard picked up a nomination, but did they stop before getting to "San Junipero"? All the tears because of that episode.
