On the film side, SAG nominations are often seen as a bellwether for the Oscar race since the Academy acting branch dominates the votes. As usual, this year’s SAG nominations don’t entirely overlap with the Oscar race; SAG voting closes Friday. Last year’s upsets included winner Emily Blunt for her non-Oscar-nominated role in “Mary Poppins Returns” and musical Globe winner Rami Malek prevailing over Drama Globe and Critics-Choice winner Christian Bale.

That means shows that may not have the best ratings (like “Fosse/Verdon” or, presumably, “The Morning Show”) can make their way into the final five, but they’ll have a harder time taking the stage.
