Three Billboards tops Screen Actors Guild nominations, The Big Sick bounces back

The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) ceremony will be a women's affair, organizers of one of Hollywood's biggest awards shows said on Wednesday, a tribute at a time when the entertainment industry has been roiled by a sexual misconduct scandal as well as the struggle for gender equality in front of and behind the camera.

This year, however, it appears that the strong TV spring and a weak fall have made our December TV nominations look mighty reactive, as they're still catching up on their first chances to honor Handmaid's Tale and Big Little Lies, among other big winners at the Emmys.

(All four of those films were also nominated for best ensemble, a category I love that SAG includes in their awards.) You can check out the full list of nominations at Variety while giving side-eye to the Golden Globes.

The female-dominated 2018 SAG Awards will air on TNT and TBS on Sunday, January 18.
