Oscar nominations 2019: biggest snubs and surprises
It wouldn’t be the Oscar nominations without some surprising snubs.

Winner of the SAG ensemble trophy has matched the Oscar best picture winner only 11 times in 23 years. "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri" and "Hidden Figures" won the last two SAG cast awards, while "The Shape of Water" and "Moonlight" took the Oscars. 

The Playlist reviews Black Panther:

Glenn Close won the SAG Award for top actress for "The Wife" and Rami Malek won for Best Actor for his searing portrayal of Freddie Mercury in "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Close stressed the importance of acting in her acceptance, saying, "The power that we have is two eyes looking into two other eyes," she said.

SAG Best Actress winners have gone on to win the Oscar for six years in a row including Frances McDormand ("Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri").

The Playlist talks Bohemian Rhapsody:

An emotional Malek thanked Mercury in his acceptance, saying, "I get the power from him stepping up and living your best life."

The SAG victory enhances Malek's status as an Oscar front-runner. SAG Best Actor winners have matched the Oscar winner 13 times in the last 14 years, including Gary Oldman ("Darkest Hour") last year.

The Playlist reviews Green Book:

Mahershala Ali won the SAG Award for best supporting actor for "Green Book" with Emily Blunt taking the supporting actress trophy for "A Quiet Place."

Ali won the same award two years ago for "Moonlight" going on to win the Oscar for the role and is again up for an Academy Award for his portrayal of pianist Don Shirley in "Green Book."

Ali said backstage that the opportunity to play Don Shirley in "Green Book" was by far the best opportunity that had presented itself in his career. "I felt I could do something with that character," he added.

Blunt starred as the mother of a family under attack by aliens in "A Quiet Place." She's also up for the lead actress award at the SAG Awards for "Mary Poppins Returns." She has yet to receive an Oscar nomination.
