Barbie and Oppenheimer Lead with Four Nominations Each at 30th Annual SAG Awards

LOS ANGELES – Nominations for the 30th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced on Wednesday, with the movies “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” leading the way with four nominations each, while the TV series “Succession” scored five nominations. The nominations were revealed in a presentation hosted by Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani.

In the movie categories, “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” received nominations in the Outstanding Performance by a Cast category, along with “American Fiction,” “The Color Purple,” and “Killers of the Flower Moon.” Margot Robbie, Ryan Gosling, and the stunt team of “Barbie” were also nominated, while Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, and Robert Downey Jr. received nominations for their roles in “Oppenheimer.”

The lead actor categories include nominees such as Bradley Cooper for “Maestro,” Annette Bening for “Nyad,” Lily Gladstone for “Killers of the Flower Moon,” and Margot Robbie for “Barbie.” On the TV side, “Succession” received five nominations, including for Drama Cast, with Brian Cox, Kieran Culkin, Matthew Macfadyen, and Sarah Snook among the nominees.

The SAG Awards have been a reliable predictor of future Oscars success in recent years. Last year, “Everything Everywhere All at Once” won the ensemble cast trophy and went on to win at the Academy Awards. Similarly, in 2022, “CODA,” Will Smith, Jessica Chastain, Troy Kotsur, and Ariana DeBose won both at SAG and the Oscars.

The winners in the 15 categories will be announced on February 24 in a ceremony streamed live on Netflix. Here’s the full list of nominations. In the Theatrical Motion Pictures category, “Barbie” and “Oppenheimer” received the most nominations with four each. Warner Bros led the way with six nominations, followed by Netflix with five. In the Television Programs category, “Succession” received the most nominations with five, followed by “The Bear,” “The Last of Us,” and “Ted Lasso” with four each.
