On top! Fashion family drama House of Gucci and dark Western The Power of the Dog led the field of film contenders announced Wednesday for Hollywood’s Screen Actors Guild awards, landing three nominations each

The results are closely watched because actors form the largest voting group in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the organization that will present the Oscars in March.

Netflix Inc scored the most SAG movie nominations of any film studio, with seven in total.

Will Smith, Lady Gaga and Ben Affleck landed individual nominations for the 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards.

The nominees were announced Wednesday by actors Vanessa Hudgens and Rosario Dawson on Instagram Live. 

While the nominations were conducted virtually due to the surge in COVID-19 cases, the streamed announcement still represented one of the most meaningful mornings in an awards season largely snuffed out by the pandemic.

She made it: Will Smith, Lady Gaga (pictured) and Ben Affleck landed individual nominations for the 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards.

Joining Belfast and CODA for best ensemble were the casts for House of Gucci, Don’t Look Up and King Richard. 

Notably left out were the casts of Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story (which did land a supporting nod for Ariana DeBose) and Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog.

Campion’s film, though, landed three individual SAG noms: Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

The Golden Globes, usually the kickoff party in the final stretch leading up to the Academy Awards, made barely a peep. 

Ace: Will Smith, right, was singled out too; seen with Demi Singleton, left, and Saniyya Sidney in a scene from King Richard

They stood out: Both Nicole Kidman and Javier Bardem were nominated for their work in the film Being The Ricardos

They were unceremoniously announced Sunday on Twitter in a private ceremony due to Hollywood’s boycott of the beleaguered Hollywood Foreign Press Association over diversity and ethical issues. 

The Omicron surge also prompted the Critics Choice Awards to postpone its January 9 in-person gala. For the second year, Oscar season has gone virtual – and struggled to make much noise.

Wednesday’s SAG nominations, at least, confirmed that this year’s Academy Awards race has plenty of star power.

The nominees for best male lead actor are: Will Smith (‘King Richard’), Cumberbatch, Denzel Washington (‘The Tragedy of Macbeth’), Andrew Garfield (‘Tick, Tick … Boom!’) and Javier Bardem (‘Being the Ricardos’).

The TV shows were announced too: The Best Ensemble for a Drama Series went to The Handmaid’s Tale, The Morning Show, Squid Game, Succession and Yellowstone

Up for best female lead are: Lady Gaga (‘House of Gucci’), Jessica Chastain (‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye’), Olivia Colman (‘The Lost Daughter’), Nicole Kidman (‘Being the Ricardos’) and Jennifer Hudson (‘Respect’).

The SAG Awards, presented by the actors guild SAG-AFTRA, are among the most reliable Oscar bellwethers. Seldom does a movie or performance not nominated by the screen actors end up winning at the Academy Awards. 

Actors make up the biggest percentage of the film academy, so their choices have the largest sway.

Somewhat overlooked: Notably left out were the casts of Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story (which did land a supporting nod for Ariana DeBose); seen center are Ansel Elgort and Rachel Zegler

But last year, SAG and the academy diverged more than usual. 

Only one of its acting winners – Daniel Kaluuya (‘Judas and the Black Messiah’) – repeated at the Oscars. (The other SAG winners were Chadwick Boseman and Viola Davis in ‘Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,’ and Yuh-Jung Youn in ‘Minari.’)

The Aaron Sorkin courtroom drama ‘The Trial of the Chicago 7’ won best ensemble at a virtual SAG Awards while Chloé Zhao’s ‘Nomadland’ – which included many nonprofessional actors and went unnominated for ensemble – triumphed at the Oscars.

The 28th annual SAG Awards are to be held February 27 and will be broadcast on TNT and TBS. The Oscars are scheduled for March 27.

They did a great job: Rosario Dawson, top, and Vanessa Hudgens, bottom, present the nominees for the 28th SAG Awards
