The nominations for the 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced Wednesday morning. Also in the mix are Steven Spielberg's "The Post", Jordan Peele's "Get Out", Greta Gerwig's "Lady Bird", Luca Guadagnino's "Call Me By Your Name", Dee Rees' "Mudbound" and Martin McDonaugh's "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri". Below, see a full list of nominees, as announced Wednesday.

Instead, SAG members recognized performers in independent films that focused on women and people of color, throwing open the race for the Oscars in March.

This is a side that started well but with a change of manager and the players out of form, it is starting to look quite tough. The former Crystal Palace manager continued, "he has fantastic attributes as a centre-half and I think he's learning".

The SAG awards are indicators of likely Oscar success because actors form the largest group of voters in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. While "Call Me by Your Name" star Timothee Chalamet lands a nomination, his co-star Armie Hammer unexpectedly doesn't make the cut.

The Screen Actors Guild has read the room, and it has determined that in the wake of 2017's flood of sexual abuse allegations in Hollywood, 2018 needs to be about amplifying female voices in the industry. This year, high-profile December releases The Post and Phantom Thread were ignored by the SAG Awards, perhaps dinging the potential candidacies of Day-Lewis, Hanks, and Meryl Streep (who is a favorite to earn her record 21st nomination for The Post). Yet, the Netflix wrestling comedy is nominated for best ensemble and best performance by a stunt ensemble in a comedy series in addition to Marc Maron and Alison Brie's individual nomination.

In this election, the DNC spent 100% of its investment on getting African-Americans and millennials to the polls. Once again, Black women in America have proven to be both a political force and the moral backbone of America.

Morgan Freeman will receive the lifetime achievement award.

Kristen Bell, who appears in the Bad Moms films and TV's The Good Place, will host the SAG Awards on January 21. Hawkins goes up against the Globe-nominated McDormand, Ronan, Robbie, and Judi Dench ("Victoria & Abdul"). They will compete with James Franco for comedy "The Disaster Artist", Gary Oldman for his role as British wartime leader Winston Churchill in "Darkest Hour", and Denzel Washington for "Roman J. Israel, Esq". The TV comedy best ensemble race will comprise "Black-ish", "Curb Your Enthusiasm", "Glow", "Orange is the New Black, and "Veep".

Low-income taxpayers would receive the money in the form of a tax refund, which is why it's called a "refundable" tax credit. Portman cast the bill as providing "the kind of middle-class tax relief that's desperately needed right now".
