Well, these are some of the wildest SAG nominees we've seen in a long time, perhaps since 2007, when the Ensemble award matched 1 for 5 with the Oscar Best Picture nominees. Seriously, Trumbo? Straight Outta Compton? There a some TV actors in the mix here, including Sarah Silverman, Bryan Cranston- the Screen Actors Guild is about 100,000 members, by far the biggest and most diverse guild that includes mostly actors from television, so that may explain some of this, including the attention paid to Netflix's Beasts of No Nation. But if anything can be gleamed from this, it looks like Spotlight being the only potential Oscar movie to hit the nominees in Ensemble, may mean the movie's already won Best Picture. Not since 1995's Braveheart has there been a film that won that failed to even get nominated at SAG.

Some other random things to note- The Big Short might be a much bigger Oscar player than anyone thought, only Rachel McAdams and none of the men from Spotlight were nominated, meaning there may be vote splitting going on there, The Martian was completely snubbed despite not being a late release and definitely being seen by everyone in the nominating committee- that's a warning sign, and not one of the female led Oscar movies- Carol, Brooklyn or Room- made it into the Ensemble category. I wouldn't be surprised if Brooklyn is the only one that makes it to Best Picture of that trio now. The Golden Globe nominations come out tomorrow morning and could well look completely different, so we could be in for a chaotic, totally up in the air race this year.
