Jo­hans­son, ‘Par­a­site’ among SAG nom­i­nees

Orlando Sentinel - - PEOPLE & ARTS -

NEW YORK — Scar­lett Jo­hans­son re­ceived two in­di­vid­ual nom­i­na­tions, “Par­a­site” scored a best en­sem­ble nod and both “The Ir­ish­man” and “Once Upon a Time ... in Hol­ly­wood” so­lid­i­fied their Os­car fa­vorite sta­tus in nom­i­na­tions an­nounced Wed­nes­day for the 26th Screen Ac­tors Guild Awards.

The SAG Awards are one of the closely watched Academy Awards bell­wethers be­cause, his­tor­i­cally, a best en­sem­ble nom­i­na­tion from the ac­tors is usu­ally a pre­req­ui­site for any best pic­ture con­tender’s re­sume.

The ac­tors guild, as ex­pected, nom­i­nated both Martin Scors­ese’s Net­flix opus and Quentin Tarantino’s Hol­ly­wood fa­ble for best en­sem­ble, along with a pair of in­di­vid­ual act­ing nods: Al Pa­cino and Joe Pesci for “The Ir­ish­man” and Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt for “Once Upon a Time.” Each film also added stunt en­sem­ble nom­i­na­tions.

The SAGs rounded out best en­sem­ble with the casts of Taika Waititi’s Nazi Ger­many com­ing-of-age tale “Jojo Rab­bit,” Jay Roach’s Fox News docu­d­rama “Bomb­shell” and Bong Joon-ho’s class satire “Par­a­site.” “Par­a­site,” the much-praised Korean film, be­came just the sec­ond for­eign lan­guage film to be nom­i­nated for the SAGs’ top award.

Notably miss­ing out on the best en­sem­ble nom­i­na­tion was Noah Baum­bach’s di­vorce drama “Mar­riage Story.” It still came away with act­ing nom­i­na­tions for its leads, Adam Driver and Jo­hans­son, and Laura Dern for best fe­male ac­tor in a sup­port­ing role. Jo­hans­son was nom­i­nated in that cat­e­gory, as well, for her per­for­mance in “Jojo Rab­bit.”


Scar­lett Jo­hans­son at­tends the pre­miere of Net­flix’s “Mar­riage Story” last month in Los An­ge­les.
