The Screen Actors Guild Awards, or SAG for short, is the annual award show honoring outstanding performances in American film and television. As one of Hollywood’s most prestigious honors, it has been a launching pad for many famous stars (namely Meryl Streep). However, this year was different when Kristen Stewart missed out on an acting honor…
Kristen Stewart was not nominated for any awards at the Screen Actors Guild Awards. The actress is a member of the guild, but she was snubbed.
Kristen Stewart’s omission from the Screen Actors Guild Awards is a tragic illustration of inequity.
Without a question, Kristen Stewart’s performance in Spencer left everyone breathless and amazed. Kristen’s depiction of the late Princess of Wales won over many hearts, and many people thought that it was time for her to take home all of the honors this year.
However, when the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) revealed its list of candidates on Wednesday, Stewart’s name was noticeably absent!

Her performance had generated a lot of Oscar excitement, and the SAG Awards have long been seen to be a good predictor of the Academy Awards. And now that she’s been spurned, it’s safe to infer that her Oscar candidacy is in jeopardy as well.
Netizens, on the other hand, expressed the same sentiments and condemned SAG’s treatment of Kristen Stewart. Regarding Kristen Stewart’s snub, everyone is in agreement. To put it lightly, her followers all around the world flocked to Twitter to voice their dismay.
If you’re looking for me, I’ll be ranting about Kristen Stewart’s SAG snub for the next week. Maybe a little longer.

Kristen Stewart’s exclusion by SAG-AFTRA is not just the greatest Best Actress snub in SAG history, but it’s also the most perplexing and distressing. These nominations could not be more straightforward. #SAGAwards

To be honest, I believe Kristen Stewart’s absence from the SAG Award nominations is the greatest stunner *ever*.

It’s not only the fans who are tweeting about it; the whole internet feels furious. Larry Blamire, a well-known film director and SAG member, expressed his disappointment with this year’s nominations, particularly with Kristen’s name missing off the list.
I’m disappointed with the nominations this year as a member of the SAG Awards nominating committee. Ignoring lesser films like MASS, THE HUMANS, and LANGUAGE LESSONS, as well as an edgy performance like Kristen Stewart’s in SPENCER. What a pity.

But why didn’t Kristen Stewart get a nomination?
Stewart’s followers are outraged, and there have been several conversations over the ‘why’ of the situation. Some even speculated that it was because of her outspokenness about her queerness.
Seeing Kristen Stewart be ignored by the Globes and now the SAG Awards is so evil. It claims that the film business will accept gay greatness in a supporting role — for example, the incredible Ariana DeBose, who deserves it all — but #1 on the call sheet? Tsk -tsk

On a more serious point, it’s difficult to tell what occurred. Perhaps many of the voters haven’t seen the film? Or maybe the crowd anticipated she would win and distributed their ballots to others? That will remain a riddle that we will most likely never solve.
