Award shows can bring out some pretty strong emotions, especially when a fan-favorite gets snubbed in the nomination process. It seems that this time, the latest huge upset came in the form of the 28th Screen Actors Guild Awards, which seemingly snubbed Kristen Stewart’s performance in “Spencer.”
Larry Blamire, a member of the SAG nomination committee, had some strong opinions about the SAG nomination choices. “As a member of the SAG Awards nominating committee this year I’m gravely disappointed in the nominations. Ignoring the brilliance of smaller films like MASS, THE HUMANS, LANGUAGE LESSONS, plus an edgy performance like Kristen Stewart’s in SPENCER. A shame,” he tweeted. Reporter Nico Lang believes the “Spencer” snub is indicative of something more sinister. “Seeing Kristen Stewart be repeatedly snubbed by the Globes and now SAG is so insidious to me. It says that the film industry will accept queer excellence in a supporting capacity — say, the amazing Ariana DeBose, who deserves everything — but #1 on the call sheet? Tsk-tsk,” they tweeted.
“If you want to find me, I will be yelling about the Kristen Stewart SAG snub for approximately the next week. Maybe longer,” journalist Shannon O’Connor tweeted. Also, journalist Katie Minard tweeted, “no SAG Awards nomination for Kristen Stewart in Spencer is my villain origin story.” Even though the snub hit film enthusiasts hard, they are still onboard for a “Spencer” Oscar nomination. As one Twitter user said, “Yeah Kristen Stewart might get an Oscar for this Spencer performance.”
