Idris Elba and Helen Mirren Lead SAG Awards with Three Nominations Each

The Screen Actors Guild just announced the list of highly deserved and expected — but thus perhaps somewhat unexciting — nominations for the 22nd annual SAG Awards. The nominees in all categories of the awards were unveiled on TNT on TBS — on which the ceremony itself will air on January 30, 2016. Of course, among the relatively even list of nominees were a few surprises: Sarah Silverman was highly praised for her performance in I Smile Back, but the gravitas of her sudden dramatic turn exposed the film as something of a flimsy vehicle for said performance, and the film ultimately didn’t get great reviews. However, since the SAG Awards’ key aim is to focus on notable performances, it’s the perfect venue to honor her. Similarly, while neither the Klimt-reclamation drama Woman in Gold nor the McCarthy era biopic Trumbo were particularly well-received, Helen Mirren earned three nominations for these two films.

Idris Elba meanwhile also led with three nominations — two for his chilling turn as the Commandant in Beasts of No Nation and one for his role as DCI John Luther in the British crime drama series, Luther.

The major categories — which include “outstanding performances” by ensembles in drama/comedy series and “outstanding performances” by full casts of films — honored the likes of Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Homeland (in drama series) Key & Peele, Transparent, and Orange is the New Black (in comedy series), and Beasts of No Nation, Spotlight and Straight Outta Compton (in motion picture).

Here’s the full list:
