Asian American Actors React to SAG Awards Nominations

The nominations list for the 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards just came out, and Darren Criss took to Twitter immediately after waking up to the news:

Criss is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries for his role in The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.

And he’s not the only Asian American that can be spotted on the full list from Variety:

Crazy Rich AsiansOutstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture

Awkwafina and Laverne Cox announced the nominations live on Wednesday, reports CNN.

Awkwafina retweeted the following in response to Crazy Rich Asians making the list:

Bohemian Rhapsody, which celebrates rock band Queen and the legacy of lead singer Freddie Mercury, who was of Indian descent, also made the list twice. The movie will be challenging Crazy Rich Asians for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, and Egyptian American actor Rami Malek is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Freddie Mercury.

The 2019 SAG Awards ceremony, hosted by Megan Mullally, will take place on January 27th.
