Shocking – Is This The Winning Formula For SAG Awards?
When it comes to recognizing worthy talent, the entertainment industry never thinks twice. From November to March every year, numerous award shows are hosted, including the Emmys, the Oscars, and the Golden Globes, to recognize and appreciate artists who have outperformed themselves in the movie industry. While such ceremonies are a treat to watch for fans like us, winning is a matter of honor for the stars themselves.
Continuing the tradition, on April 4, 2020, the 27th Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards ceremony took place at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California. And like any other award show, these too were also surrounded by several rumors and facts. One of the most interesting among them was the belief that actors whose entire ensemble is nominated along them are twice as likely to bag their awards.
Hmm, really? Can that actually be true? Join us as we try to find out.
The mysterious theory
Not long ago, The Hollywood Reporter conducted an analysis of the history of SAG nominations and won over the past 25 years. According to the findings, actors whose casts are also nominated have almost double the odds to win their respective awards as compared to other actors.
For the purpose of the analysis, the data from categories like best actor, supporting actor, best actress, and supporting actresses were collected along with ensemble nominations (if any). Comparing the win rate of actors in conjunction with nominated casts revealed that it doubled the chances of an artist’s victory.
Keeping that in mind, wouldn’t it be fun to see if this theory actually worked at 2021’s SAG awards? Let’s have a quick look at all the actors who stood a high chance according to this.
2021 SAG Awards contestants whose casts were also nominated
Contenders for lead actors included late actor Chadwick Boseman and Steven Yeun for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and “Minari” movies, while the nominees for supporting actors comprised Sacha Baron Cohen, Chadwick Boseman, and Leslie Odom Jr. for “The Trial of the Chicago 7″, “Da 5 Bloods,” and “One Night in Miami.” The lead and supporting actress nominees were actress Viola Davis for the movie “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and actress Youn Yuh-jung for “Minari.”
And who won?
Actor Chadwick Boseman and actress Viola Davis won the awards for the lead actor and lead actress respectively. On the other hand, actor Daniel Kaluuya and actress Youn Yuh-jung won the supporting actor and actress award. So technically, the results indicated that the theory was only partly correct.
Summing it up
Hellen Keller’s saying, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much,” shows the importance of teamwork. When a team works collectively, it can defeat any obstacles in its way. Similarly, when every individual in the cast gives their hundred percent, the movie has to succeed. In such a case, if more than one actor from a cast wins, it’s a celebration for the whole crew!
