Another day, another award ceremony! The 2023 Screen Actors Guild Awards are quickly approaching, and the guest list will include many of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
Ashley Park and Haley Lu Richardson announced the nominations in January. The Emily in Paris actress, 31, and White Lotus actress, 27, took to Instagram Live to reveal who was being honoured this year.
The 29th annual SAG Awards honour stars from both the big and small screens for their achievements in the previous year. Michelle Yeoh (Everything, Everywhere, All at Once), Colin Farrell (The Banshees of Inisherin), Zendaya (Euphoria), and Amanda Seyfried were among those honoured for their outstanding performances (The Dropout).
“The warmest feeling is peer recognition,” the Mean Girls actress, 37, said in a statement following the nominations announcement. “The thing you never expect but always strive for because it makes you feel seen and at home. This is a joyful day for me.”
When the SAG nominations were announced, Seyfried had just won Best Actress – Limited or Anthology Series or Television Film at the 2023 Golden Globes. Yeoh, 60, was also nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy.
If her award season streak continues, the Crazy Rich Asians actress has the potential to make history. Yeoh would be the first Asian-American performer to receive the SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role.
Everything Everywhere All At Once racked up five total nominations from the SAG-AFTRA members, including Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. Breakout star Stephanie Hsu could hardly contain her excitement upon receiving her first SAG Awards nod.
When I saw the Supporting Actress nominees in that Elvis suit with Angela [Bassett], Hong [Chau], Kerry [Candon], Jamie [Lee Curtis], and others… “I had to do a double, triple, maybe four takes,” the 32-year-old Broadway star exclaimed in January. “I’m so humbled to be standing alongside them.
Thank you to SAG and my coworkers for seeing me. Thank you for honouring me. Every time we step into the shoes of another character, we give our entire heart and soul, our brokenness and our magic. We don’t always “receive our flowers.” Today, I treat this nomination like a large bouquet. Thank you very much.”
