’12 Years A Slave’ & ‘The Butler’ Lead SAG Noms In Motion Picture Category



Earlier this year odds were all for Lee Daniels’ The Butler and it’s pedigree cast, sweeping most group nods this award season … And then along came 12 Years a Slave.

HipHollywood was at the 20th Annual SAG Nominations Announcement where the the real showdown between the two pictures began. Both highly acclaimed films taking home the most nods in the category for motion picture.

12 Years a Slave star, Lupita Nyong’o will be a top contender this year in the category for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her work in 12 Years. Joining Lupita in the same category, Oprah Winfrey, who was recognized for her role in, The Butler.

Chiwetel Ejiofor and Forest Whiatker go head to head in the category for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role. Ejiofor, nominated for his role in 12 Years a Slave and Whitaker, for his outstanding act in, The Butler.

HipHollywood recently caught up with Ejiofor to talk about his latest role and to get his reaction on the buzz surrounding the film. “I’m very proud of the films that I’ve been working on and I’m excited for people to see them. It’s amazing, the response is kind of positive, I’m thrilled,” he told us.

Both films were also nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

In the television category for the 2014 SAG Awards, Kerry Washington (no surprise) was recognized for her role as Olivia Pope in ABC’s, Scandal. The actress was nominated for outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series.

Don Cheadle was recognized for his role in the comedy, House of Lies and Angela Bassett, was nominated for her performance in the Lifetime miniseries, Betty & Coretta.

Issa, Anthony, Sterling … Oh My! This Is Who We’re Rooting For At The Golden Globes



Another year, another award show … but this time around a few new names have made the nominations cut.

The 2018 Golden Globes nominees were announced on Monday and some of our favorites like Anthony Anderson, his show “black-ish”, Denzel Washington (“Roman J. Israel, Esq”), Octavia Spencer (“The Shape Of Water”) and Sterling K. Brown (“This Is Us”) made the list again. But some newbies were announced that have us giddy like it’s Christmas morning.

First up, we’re super glad that “Get Out” is being recognized, although it’s in the “Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical” category (womp) and to see David Kaluuya getting some love is pretty dope.

In addition, one of our FAVE singer is now being recognized for her acting prowess! Mary J. Blige scored a nod for her supporting role in “Mudbound” and we can’t wait to see what she wears to the big show.

And although this is Issa Rae’s second year being a Golden Globe nominee, we’re just as excited as if it were her first! Oh, and maybe the Globes will get it right this year (wink, wink).
