The Screen Actors Guild Awards is probably the best indicator for Oscar success. Last year 14 out of the 20 SAG nominees went on to reap Oscar bids, while 3 of the 4 of them won (Oscar winner Christoph Waltz was submitted into lead for Django Unchained). The year before that 17 of the 20 SAG nominees were nominated for Oscars and again 3 out of the 4 winners went on to win the Oscar.

This year the nominees look like they are again going to be the most accurate indicator for the Oscars. Best Picture frontrunner 12 Years a Slave leads the nominations with 4 bids for Best Actor (Chiwetel Ejiofor), Best Supporting Actor (Michael Fassbender), and Best Supporting Actress (Lupita Nyong’o).

However, there were some surprises. Daniel Brühl, who received early Oscar buzz for his role in Rush, was able to break into the supporting category. In addition, Tom Hanks was snubbed for his supporting role in Saving Mr. Banks. The biggest surprise of the morning was Dallas Buyers Club’s ensemble nomination. Many expected the film to receive bids for its lead Matthew McConaughey and scene stealer Jared Leto, but an ensemble nomination wasn’t even considered.

Sasha Alexander and Clark Gregg announced the nominations. See the full list below and check out the television nominees here.
