Huh. The Post was shut out completely. Was it not screened in time, or did the SAG not care for it?

Of these five, I haven't seen Mudbound yet, but I would guess the race is between Lady Bird and Get Out for the Oscar.

Oh, SAG members had a chance to see it, all right. I went to a press screening in Vancouver a couple weeks ago and got a DVD copy of the film shortly after that. I would be very, very, *very* surprised if SAG members had not had at least as many chances to see it as I did.

I also liked the film a lot, but I guess SAG liked these other films (or the performances therein) more.

Of these five, Lady Bird is the only one that I don't have as a screener or can't watch on streaming. (Mudbound is on Netflix, The Big Sick is on Amazon, and I have DVDs of the other two. I also have a DVD of Mudbound, which is kind of redundant, not least because I can stream a higher-def version of the film!) So I guess I should watch it soon.

The Producers Guild Award nominees (there are supposed to be 10, but instead there are 11, because of a tie!):

  • The Big Sick
  • Call Me by Your Name
  • Dunkirk
  • Get Out
  • I, Tonya
  • Lady Bird
  • Molly's Game
  • The Post
  • The Shape of Water
  • Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri
  • Wonder Woman

Notably, one of the five SAG ensemble nominees is missing from this list, namely Mudbound.

The winner will be announced January 20.
