While the cast of Friends won Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series at the 1996 SAG Awards, Aniston was unable to attend as she was doing publicity for the show.

While DiCaprio had previously been nominated in the Best Ensemble categories for Marvin's Room and Titanic, he received his first solo SAG Awards nomination for his work in The Aviator.
