The SAG Noms Are Here: Nicole Kidman Finally Gets Recognized For Her Riveting Performance As Grace Kelly!

December 9, 2015 / Posted by:

When the Emmy nominations were announced a few months ago, us devotees of television art nearly rioted in the streets of Hollywood when those not-knowing bitches shut out Nicole Kidman and failed to give her the nom she deserved for the direct-to-Lifetime classic Grace of Monaco. But leave it to the SAG Awards to honor Nicole Kidman for making the controversial acting decision to play Grace Kelly a Botoxed icicle.

Anna Faris and Anthony Mackie announced the nominations for the 2016 SAG Awards, which are given to actors only. Besides Nicole Kidman and Rami Malek, the TV nominations were pretty much the same old, same old and not really surprising. The list reads like it was copy and pasted from 2013’s list. Empire, The Affair, Fargo, The Leftovers, The Americans, American Crime and my favorite Getting On got a whole lot of nothing. As for the movie nominations, they were a mess.

I saw Spotlight and thought that Rachel McAdams was the most forgettable in that shit and was sort of just there. Spotlight got a nomination for Best Ensemble, but Rachel McAdams was the only one of them who got singled out. If Jennifer Lawrence released a 10-second iPhone video of her busting a fart, she’d probably get nominated for every award. But the SAG Awards didn’t give her dick for Joy, the movie that isn’t a Joy Mangano biopic even though her ass plays Joy Mangano. I fully expect the police to arrest every SAG member who didn’t put Jennifer Lawrence’s name down on their nominations form, because not nominating her is against the law.

The SAGs also left out Will Smith for Concussion, Matt Damon for The Martian, Sylvester Stallone for Creed and Layla Grant from Nashville for Jem and the Holograms. They did wet burp up some surprises like Sarah Silverman, the little boy from Room and Helen Mirren. Somebody’s going to need to hand Helen Mirren a 4-ply paper towel, because I’m sure her ass is covered with the saliva that SAG left on it after french kissing it. Helen Mirren got a nom for Woman in Gold (???) and Trumbo (????). They probably gave Helen Mirren so much love, because they really, really want her to grace their awards show with her exquisite Lucite heels. That must be it.
