Apple TV+ Series 'The Morning Show' Nominated for Several SAG Awards

Apple TV+ series "The Morning Show" has been nominated for three Screen Actors Guild Awards for outstanding male actor and outstanding female actor.

Steve Carell and Billy Crudup, who play Mitch Kessler and Corey Ellison, respectively, have been nominated for the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series award.

The two will be competing against Sterling K. Brown (Randall Pearson) from "This Is Us," Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister) from "Game of Thrones," and David Harbour (Jim Hopper) from "Stranger Things."

Jennifer Aniston, who plays Alex Levy, was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series. Reese Witherspoon, who plays Bradley Jackson in "The Morning Show" was not nominated.

Aniston will be competing against Helena Bonham Carter (Princess Margaret) and Olivia Coleman (Queen Elizabeth II) from "The Crown," Jodie Comer (Villanelle) from "Killing Eve," and Elisabeth Moss (June/Offred) from "The Handmaid's Tale."

Apple has also received several Golden Globe Award nominations for "The Morning Show," including a nomination for best drama series. Both Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston have been nominated for best actress in a drama series Golden Globe awards as well.

Apple is competing against HBO's "Big Little Lies" and "Succession," BBC America's "Killing Eve," and Netflix's "The Crown" for the best drama series Golden Globe award.

The SAG Awards are given by the Screen Actors Guild and they are considered one of the major award events in Hollywood. The Golden Globe Awards, also considered a major award event, are decided on by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

The SAG awards will take place on Sunday, January 19, 2020, while the Golden Globes will be held on Sunday, January 5, 2020.

Both the Golden Globes and the SAG Awards will be followed by the Academy Awards, given by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Nominations for the Academy Awards, which will be held on February 9, have not yet been announced. SAG and Golden Globe nominations are often predictors of Academy Award nominations, though.

"The Morning Show" is the only one of Apple's TV shows to receive award nominations in 2020, and it is the series with the most notable cast. Prior to launch, "The Morning Show" received less than stellar reviews from critics, but it has fared better with audiences.

I'm enjoying the show so far. Just goes to show how cynical and negative this community is. I guarantee they get nominated for a few Emmys in the fall of 2020 as well.

Hollywood awards are meaningless. It's the industry patting each other on the back. Often times it's like a political process. Are some of you going to run to your friends and tell them how awesome it is that a show got some SAG nominations? No one I know gives 2 rips about movie/tv awards.

Mindhunter is without a doubt one of the best tv shows out and it got 0 SAG nominations.

I'm not sure I would want the nomination for an award called the "SAG" award.

I realize it stands for screen actors guild but call the award something else.

It is one of the most prestigious awards in the business. I think they are fine with the way it is.

It's a good show... well done Apple.

I agree. Whodathunkit. I was as cynical as any other MR forum member in the beginning. Wishing they would stick to hardware and software. Laughing at the articles and leaks. But I’m happy to eat some crow. Apple got me enthusiastic about tv again. Credit where to where it is due. They actually can multi task. Color me surprised.
