SAG Awards Ceremony to Feature Solely Female Presenters

The Hollywood Reporter revealed on Wednesday that the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards ceremony will be presented by women, women, and more women, as a mark of what womenfolk have been through this year and since the dawn of time.

Greta Gerwig's coming-of-age story "Lady Bird" followed with three. That adds to the movie's strong awards portfolio, including six Golden Globes nods and the often predictive audience award at the Toronto International Film Festival. Aduba won her second straight SAG Award.

The SAG Awards will air Sunday, Jan. 21, on TNT and TBS.

Actors make up the largest segment of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences, so their deliberations on the year's best performances hold considerable sway in fluctuating Oscar fortunes. And women made up only 17 percent of all directors, writers, producers, executive producers, editors and cinematographers working on the top 250 biggest-grossing movies in 2016, according to a study by the San Diego-based Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film. And those films were left out of SAG's best picture equivalent award: best ensemble. Steven Spielberg's Pentagon Papers drama "The Post" was shut out entirely, including its Globe-nominated stars, Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.

'Stop talking nonsense', Maradona slams Ronaldo on Best Footballer claim
There's no more complete player than me. "From the few players that I saw, amongst the greatest were Di Stefano, Cruyff, Messi". However, it can't be Ronaldo. 'Another thing that I like about Cristiano Ronaldo is that when the team need him, he delivers.

Along with McDormand and Hawkins, the best actress nominees were: Judi Dench ("Victoria & Abdul"), Saoirse Ronan ("Lady Bird") and Margo Robbie ("I, Tonya").

The Kumail Nanjiani-starring Sundance breakout was ignored by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association on Monday, but the Screen Actors Guild put the film firmly in the race Wednesday with not just a supporting actress nomination for costar Holly Hunter but one for best ensemble as well. Both Lady Bird and Get Out have received universal praise all year - it's hard to find someone who hasn't been won over by these movies - and if SAG Awards history is any indication, either could win up winning best picture in March.

Winners will be announced during a January 21 telecast hosted by Kristen Bell.

The award ceremony, set to take place in January, recognizes outstanding performances in both film and primetime television.
