Nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced today, and Game of Thrones has been nominated in three categories!
- Peter Dinklage is up for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series. He’ll be competing against Steve Buscemi of Boardwalk Empire, Bryan Cranston of Breaking Bad, Jeff Daniels of The Newsroom, and Kevin Spacey of House of Cards.
- The cast has been nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. This award is shared by regular and recurring actors on the show, which on Game of Thrones is quite the list: Alfie Allen, John Bradley, Oona Chaplin, Gwendoline Christie, Emilia Clarke, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Mackenzie Crook, Charles Dance, Joe Dempsie, Peter Dinklage, Natalie Dormer, Nathalie Emmanuel, Michelle Fairley, Jack Gleeson, Iain Glen, Kit Harington, Lena Headey, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Kristofer Hivju, Paul Kaye, Sibel Kekilli, Rose Leslie, Richard Madden, Rory McCann, Michael McElhatton, Ian McElhinney, Philip McGinley, Hannah Murray, Iwan Rheon, Sophie Turner, Carice van Houten, and Maisie Williams.
- For the third year in a row, GoT has been nominated for Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Comedy or Drama Series. The show has won this award for the last two years.
The SAG Awards ceremony will air on Saturday, January 18, 2014 on TNT and TBS.
Ours is the Fury: It’s great to see the cast up for the Ensemble award again after being left off the list last year. They were nominated for the first season, and I’d love to see them pick up that award this year. Good luck to Peter and the stunt team as well!
