Yellowstone may triumph where ‘Lost’ failed at the SAG Awards.
Yellowstone has been fantastic in every way. Taylor Sheridan and John Linson’s Dutton family drama immediately became one of the most talked-about dramas on television when they initially started working on it. After four incredible seasons, it has gotten its first SAG nomination for television drama ensemble, which has once again astounded everyone.
None of the other Paramount pictures received nominations, including one featuring Kevin Costner as the patriarch of the Dutton family and owner of Montana’s largest ranch. This does not bode well for victory, yet the situation is not as dire as it appears at first glance.
Since 1995, three programs have won the SAG Award for outstanding ensemble in drama without receiving a single star nomination. The first was HBO’s 2003 winner, “Six Feet Under.” In 2005 and 2006, “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “Lost” were released. If Yellowstone is a success, it will be the first show to accomplish so in over 15 years. “Big Little Lies” competed in Season 1, but lost to “The Crown” in Season 2, which was a limited series.
Yellowstone has a 9/2 chance of finishing in the top four in the Gold Derby based on the aggregate odds. “Succession,” an HBO program about a wealthy and dysfunctional media family, is now predicted to win by nine experts. “Squid Game,” Netflix’s breakout smash, comes in second with 19/5 odds. “The Morning Show” (9/2 odds) returns in third place after missing the previous cycle, while “The Handmaid’s Tale” (9/2 odds) rounds out the field.
What would have occurred in the individual acting competitions if “Yellowstone” had won the drama ensemble category? “Succession” was finally embraced by the crowd after two seasons of being ignored. During the season-long pandemic break between Seasons 2 and 3, SAG-AFTRA members were allowed to catch up on the highly praised show’s second season. In the absence of a distinct category, Jeremy Strong and Brian Cox were recognized alongside Kieran Culkin. There have never been more than two co-star nods in the drama actor category, indicating the show’s popularity with voters.
As a result, there were just two spots left for the “Yellowstone” guys. It came as no surprise when Billy Crudup of “The Morning Show” was nominated for another Emmy for his efforts in the first season of the show (his co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon were recognized in actress as well). It wasn’t long before “Squid Game” became a worldwide sensation. As a result, the deck was loaded against “Yellowstone.”
This year’s SAG-AFTRA drama ensemble competition demonstrates that “Yellowstone” has widespread support among SAG-AFTRA members. The various races in the series may have lately encountered an unstoppable force (and if there were separate supporting categories, we might be having a totally different conversation). No matter how much money an individual actor puts into “Succession,” it would be stupid to rule “Yellowstone” out of contention in the drama ensemble competition. With each passing season, the organization’s populist voting membership rises in popularity. We are aware because the software never ceases to astound us.
