The 2017 SAG nominations are IN and several YBF celebs scooped up nods. Sterling K. Brown, Courtney B. Vance, Kerry Washington, Uzo Aduba, Fences, Moonlight and more made the cut. Deets inside…

 

Get those Oscars ready! The Screen Actors Guild Awards are usually a good indication of who might be recognized at the Oscars and this year is looking much more diverse than the last two years, thankfully. Several YBF movies and actors landed much deserved nods and we’re super excited about it.

Moonlight and Fences both picked up three nominations each!  They seem to be Awards season faves this go-round.

Moonlight has been taking over damn near every awards list and the SAG Awards were no different. Moonlight star Mahershala Ali is nominated in the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role and Naomie Harris is in the running for the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role. The film is also nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

Moonlight and Fences will battle it out in the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture along with Hidden Figures.

Fences star Denzel Washington, who directed, produced and starred in the film, is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role and his co-star Viola Davis picked up a nomination in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role category. She will go up against Naomie and Hidden Figures star Octavia Spencer.

Sterling K. Brown and Courtney B. Vance won BIG at the Critic’s Choice Awards and the EMMYS this year. And we predict they will do the same at the SAG Awards.

Sterling and Courtney have both been nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series
 for their roles in “The People vs. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.” Sterling is also nominated in the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series category for his role in the hit NBC show “This Is Us.”

Kerry Washington (Confirmation) and Audra McDonald (Lady Day At Emerson’s Bar & Grill) will battle it out in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series category.

 
“Orange Is The New Black” star Uzo Aduba won a SAG Award last year and she’s back for another one..or two. She is nominated in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series category and the “OITNB” cast nabbed a spot in the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series category up against “black•ish.”

“black•ish” star Anthony Anderson and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” star Tituss Burgess (yassss!) will go head-to-head for the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series award.

Thandie Newton is nominated in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series for her role in “Westworld.” Check out the full list here

Looks promising for the YBFers. The 2017 SAG Awards will air live on January 29th on TNT and TBS.
