The gothic western of Jane Campion, “The Power of the Dog,” and the true-crime drama “The Gucci House,” topped the Hollywood Screen Actors Guild award nominations on Wednesday. (SAG), generally a key indicator in the race to the Oscars.
Days after “The Power of the Dog” won the Golden Globe for best drama, the stars of that film, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst Y What Smith-McPhee, each received the nomination of the actors union.
Also the movie “La casa Gucci” by Ridley Scott received three nominations.
However, “The Power of the Dog” failed to garner a nomination for best cast, the top award to be awarded by the SAG on February 27.
The film, a story of two estranged brothers in 1920s Montana, first screened in September at the prestigious Venice film festival, where Campion won the best director award.
Since then, it has garnered rave reviews and the film was released by Netflix.
The SAG bypassed the widespread mockery about Jared Leto’s lush Italian accent to nominate him for best supporting actor in “House of Gucci,” alongside Lady Gaga and the cast, which also includes Adam Driver Y Al Pacino.
They were nominated for best cast, the Oscar equivalent to best picture, “Belfast”, “CODA”, “Dont Look Up” and “King Richard”.
Voted for by actors, the SAG Awards are considered a strong indicator of what will happen at the Oscars, as actors represent the largest branch of the roughly 10,000 voters for the United States Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
The SAG Awards will be announced in Santa Monica, California, exactly one month before the Oscars.
On the television side, the SAG delivered five nominations each for “Succession” and “Ted Lasso.”
