The nominations for this year’s Screen Actors Guild Awards have been announced and, unsurprisingly, the Netflix hit “Squid Game” joins the list of nominees.
The hype surrounding the South Korean Netflix series “Squid Game” has subsided a little in the last few weeks, but the streaming hit is emerging again from abstinence as part of the recent Golden Globes and the upcoming SAG Awards. Because while the mini-series was only honored with a nomination at the Golden Globes against HBO’s current flagship “Succession”, it is now making television history again at the SAG Awards.

Because “Squid Game” is the first non-English language and first Korean series that was ever nominated at the SAG Awards (via Variety). The ten-episode production entered the race with nominations in four categories, including “Best Acting Ensemble in a Drama Series” and “Best Stunt Ensemble in a TV Series”.
Lee Jung-jae, who played Seong Gi-hin, was nominated for “Best Actor in a Drama Series”. On the other hand, Jung Ho-yeon could be honored as “Best Actress in a Drama Series” for her portrayal of Kang Sae-byeok. In addition to “Squid Game”, Netflix also has some highlights ready for the year 2022, which we present to you in our video:
What are the chances for “Squid Game”?
“Squid Game” already won an award at this year’s Golden Globe Awards for Oh Yeong-su’s portrayal of Il-nam, the oldest competitor in the ranks of players with player number one. The format has also won some prizes at smaller awards, but what are the chances at the Golden Globes? If you look at the competitors in the respective categories, “Squid Game” will definitely not have an easy time of it.
Because series like “Succession” and “The Morning Show” have been nominated several times in one category. In particular, “Succession” with three actors in the category “Best Actor in a Drama Series” turns out to be a very promising contender. The HBO series already emerged as one of the big winners of the evening at the Golden Globes, so “Squid Game” could possibly lose out here as well. But who knows, maybe we will experience on February 27, 2022 one or the other surprise when the SAG Awards are presented for the 28th time.
