SAG Nominees: Best Actress in a Leading Role

My predictions: 3/5, missing Erivo and Nyong’o
Who’s missing? Saoirse Ronan (Little Women), Awkwafina (The Farewell), Alfre Woodard (Clemency)

I didn’t even realize until I sat down to write this category that Awkwafina didn’t make the cut, which makes me sad. Many are likely thrilled that Lupita Nyong’o (Us) is here, and while I am glad that I finally watched and reviewed the film yesterday, I don’t think she deserves a spot here. Cynthia Erivo (Harriet) is doing better than many have expected, nabbing a slot over Ronan. The other three were expected: Scarlett Johansson (Marriage Story), Renee Zellweger (Judy), and Charlize Theron (Bombshell), whose film picked up a lot of steam today and is the only one of this bunch to earn an ensemble bid.

Who will win? I suspect Zellweger wins here like everywhere else.
