SAG Awards: when the co-stars compete for the best film / mini-actress
In the first 28 years of the Screen Actors Guild Awards, 13 pairs or trios have received nominations for the same TV movie or limited series. Those who set this precedent were the bandmates of “A Cooler Climate” Judy Davis and Sally Fieldwho both competed for Best TV Movie/Mini Actress 2000 against the eventual winner Halle Berry (“Introducing Dorothy Dandridge”).
Since then, only four of the actresses placed in those situations have had wins, leaving the current contenders John Smart and Kate Winslet (“Mare of Easttown”) with only a 33% chance of doing so. Smart and Winslet’s challengers are Jennifer Coolidge (“The White Lotus”), Cynthia Erivo (“Genie: Aretha”), and Margaret Qualley (“Maid”).
Judging by the last eight instances of double or triple losses in this category, it’s more advantageous for someone named here against a set of costars to be younger than at least one of them. This applied in seven of the eight cases and works well for the three current single contestants, as Smart is the oldest in the lineup at 70.
It also helps to be a former SAG nominee, given that Berry was the only one of the eight not to be. However, it’s also best to be new to the category, as evidenced by the fact that only three of the eight champions have played here before. Most of the others had been recognized for their work in feature films. That stat benefits Erivo and Qualley, who both won their first SAG bids two years ago for the films “Harriet” (solo) and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” (together), respectively.
To triumph in this situation, it is better to have never won a SAG Award before, as indicated by the fact that only three of these eight women had already imposed themselves here or elsewhere. This is good news for Coolidge, Erivo and Qualley, as each of their potential SAG wins would be their first.
If Smart or Winslet becomes the fifth actress to defeat at least one co-star here, she will follow the lead originally set by Meryl Streepwho won her 2004 “Angels in America” cast mates Marie-Louise Parker and Emma Thompson as well as the duo “The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone » Anne Bancroft and Helen Mirren. Next came Drew Barrymorewho beat his “Grey Gardens” co-star Jessica Lange in 2010. A year later, Claire Danish prevailed over fellow cast members of “Temple Grandin” Catherine O’Hara and Julia Ormond. The most recent entrant on the list was Nicole Kidman (“Big Little Lies”), who beat his castmates Laura Dern and Reese Witherspoon and “Feud: Bette and Joan” pair Lange and Susan Sarandon.
In 2006, Joanne Woodward and Robin Wright were both nominated for “Empire Falls” against an eventual winner S. Epatha Merkerson (“Lackawanna Blues”). Annette Bening and Cloris Leachman (“Mrs. Harris”) then both competed for the 2007 award but lost to Mirren (“Elizabeth I”). In 2014, Mirren beat another pair when she won for “Phil Spector” on holly hunter and Moss (“Top of the Lake”). Prior to this year, the two most recent cases involved Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson (“Sharp Objects”), which were beaten by Patricia Arquette (“Escape at Dannemora”) and Arquette and Joey King (“The Act”), who lost to michelle williams (“Fosse/Verdon”).
