Watch: 2022 SAG Awards Noms: SNUBS & SURPRISES
The 2022 SAG Awards are drawing mixed reactions after snubbing a few big names.
On Wednesday, Jan. 12, Rosario Dawson and Vanessa Hudgens announced the nominees for the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Instagram Live. It was a moment of much anticipation after the Golden Globe Awards went untelevised and unattended by their own nominees. As such, movie and TV fans are looking to the SAG Awards for their Academy Award predictions.
However, like with any award show, fans were dismayed to wake up and learn that their favorite stars were not nominated. Kristen Stewart, Selena Gomez and Rachel Zegler were left out of the running in their respective categories, while shows like Insecure, Wandavision and Dickinson were ignored entirely.
On the other hand, some worthy newcomers got a nod from the SAG-AFTRA cardholders. Squid Game was nominated for Ensemble Cast and Yellowstone received its first major nomination too.
So, it's not all bad news.

Selena Gomez in Only Murders in the Building, Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series
Though the Hulu series was nominated for Ensemble Cast and Steve Martin and Martin Short were recognized in the Male Actor category, viewers of the show were surprised Selena was passed over for an individual nomination. Though Steve and Martin delivered hilarious performances, Selena's portrayal of Mabel balanced out the trio and added a sense of emotional depth.

SAG-AFTRA cardholders made history when they nominated Squid Game stars Jung Ho-Yeon and Lee Jung-Jae for their roles in the Netflix series, as the actors are the first individual performers to be nominated for non-English language TV roles.
