“A Star Is Born” continued to build its case as an Oscar front-runner by nabbing four Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations Wednesday morning.
The musical drama is up for the night’s biggest prize, best ensemble (akin to Oscars’ best picture), plus picked up nods for Bradley Cooper (outstanding male actor), Lady Gaga (female actor) and Sam Elliott (supporting actor).
Also in the best cast category is “BlacKkKlansman” (which racked up three nominations total), “Black Panther” (which also landed a stunt ensemble nomination), “Crazy Rich Asians” and, perhaps the biggest surprise, “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
Among TV highlights, Netflix’s “Ozark” and Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” led the way with four nominations each. “Ozark” snagged honors for best drama ensemble, male actor in a drama (Jason Bateman) and female actor in a drama (Laura Linney and Julia Garner), while Maisel ruled the comedy categories with nods for ensemble, female actor (Rachel Brosnahan and Alex Borstein) and Tony Shalhoub (male actor).
Having also picked up best actress nods for the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards, Gaga will be in the race for female actor in a lead film role with four other Globe nominees: Olivia Colman (“The Favourite”), Glenn Close (“The Wife”), Melissa McCarthy (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) and Emily Blunt (“Mary Poppins Returns”).
