The nominees have been announced for the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards, with several theatre and Broadway alums among them.
Tony winner Cynthia Erivo was nominated for her performance as Harriet Tubman in Harriet in the category of Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role—a pool that also included Tony nominee Lupita Nyong’o for Us, and Renée Zellweger, who was nominated for her performance as Judy Garland in Judy. Charlize Theron and Scarlett Johansson rounded out the nominees, for Bombshell and Marriage Story, respectively.

Both Waller-Bridge and Brosnahan were nominated for their performances.
