Steven Spielberg’s version of “West Side Story” was conspicuous by its absence from the nominations.

The Golden Globes, usually the kickoff party in the final stretch leading up to the Oscars, barely rang this year. The winners were announced Sunday on Twitter during a private ceremony due to Hollywood’s boycott of the embattled Hollywood Foreign Press Association over diversity and ethics issues.

The increase in Covid infections by the omicron strain also caused the Critics Choice Awards to postpone their face-to-face gala on January 9. For the second year, awards season went virtual and struggled to make much noise.

In the race for the Oscars

The SAG nominations on Wednesday at least confirmed that the race to the Academy Awards this year includes big stars.

The nominees for best actor are Will Smith for King Richard: A Winning Family, Cumberbatch, Denzel Washington by The tragedy of MacbethAndrew Garfield for Tick, Tick… Boom! and Javier Bardem for Being the Ricardos.

For the award for best actress Lady Gaga compete for The Gucci houseJessica Chastain for Tammy Faye’s eyes, Olivia Colmanby the lost girlNicole Kidman by Being the Ricardos and Jennifer Hudson for Respect: The Aretha Franklin Story.

The SAG Awards, presented by the SAG-AFTRA Screen Actors Guild, are among the most trusted referents of the Oscars. Rarely does a movie or performance that wasn’t nominated by the actors on screen end up winning Academy Awards. Actors make up the largest percentage of the film academy, so their choices have the most influence.

But last year, SAG and the Academy diverged more than usual. Just one of his award-winning actors, Daniel Kaluuya for Judas and the black messiah He also won the Oscar. The other SAG winners were Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis for the mother of the blues and Yuh-Jung Youn for Minari.

Aaron Sorkin’s courtroom drama The trial of the Chicago 7 won the SAG for Best Ensemble, while Nomadland Chloé Zhao’s, which featured many non-professional actors and was not nominated for best ensemble, took home the Oscar for best picture.

Hope is the last thing you lose

That track record will give fans of Kristen Stewart hope (Spencer), who was overlooked by the guild, as well as Peter Dinklage (Cyrano), Ciarán Hinds (Belfast) and Rachel Zegler (Love without barriers).

While some have supported some of the year’s biggest blockbusters to give the Oscars a populist jolt, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Dune Y No time to die received no major nominations of the Actors Guild.

However, the latter two joined Black widow, Matrix Resurrections Y Shang-Chi and the legend of the ten rings in the doubles section.
