The 2021 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced Thursday morning by Lily Collins (“Mank,” “Emily in Paris”) and Daveed Diggs (“Hamilton,” “Snowpiercer”) on the SAG Awards’ Instagram page, after a few technical hiccups.

The films leading the way in the outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture are “Da 5 Bloods,” “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” “Minari,” “One Night in Miami” and “The Trial of the Chicago 7.” In the female lead actor race, Amy Adams, Viola Davis, Vanessa Kirby, Frances McDormand and Carey Mulligan will compete; while the lead male actor race is between Riz Ahmed, Chadwick Boseman, Anthony Hopkins, Gary Oldman and Steven Yeun.

Notably, Boseman picked up two posthumous nominations, for lead actor in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and supporting actor for “Da 5 Bloods.”

As a result of the pandemic, the SAG Awards, typically held in January, shifted back a few months to April 4. The ceremony will air on TNT and TBS at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET.
