Netflix projects earn an impressive 17 Screen Actors Guild Award nominations

Awards season is in full swing, with the major television and film organizations rolling out their nominees from the past year of projects and performances. The nominations for the 23rd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were among those announced this week, and its pool of nominees offers an interesting take on how the medium of television — and movies, to a lesser degree — is changing and evolving.

Projects produced (or co-produced) by streaming video services Netflix and Amazon Studios account for 22 of the nominations on this year’s list of SAG Awards nominees across television and film, and nearly half of the nominations from the world of television.
