SAG Nominees: Best Ensemble Cast

My predictions: 2/5, picking only “Manchester by the Sea” and “Moonlight”
Who’s missing: Florence Foster Jenkins, Hell or High Water, La La Land, Lion, Loving, Nocturnal Animals, Silence

So I didn’t do too well here, with only awards season frontrunners Manchester by the Sea and Moonlight showing up as I predicted. After seeing “La La Land” last night (review coming tomorrow), I could have told you that it wouldn’t get in here since, wonderful as it is, it’s really just a two-person show. I’m surprised that “Florence Foster Jenkins” didn’t make the cut even though its two stars, who I didn’t predict did. Instead we got Fences, with two performers nominated, and two more surprising inclusions: Captain Fantastic and Hidden Figures. I still have to see two of these films, so I’ll reserve judgment for now even though I’m disappointed that “Hell or High Water” didn’t get in.

Who could win? I think it will be Moonlight though I’m not sure.
