'The Morning Show' racks up three Screen Actors Guild nominations
AppleTV+ newsroom drama "The Morning Show" has been nominated twice for outstanding male actor and once for outstanding female actor by the Screen Actors Guild.
"The Morning Show" is AppleTV+'s newsroom drama centered on the world of morning news. It takes a look at the lives and ambitions of those involved in helping America wake up. The show features several Hollywood heavy hitters, including Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell, and Billy Crudup.
The nominations go to both Steve Carell and Billy Crudup for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series. Also nominated are Sterling K. Brown for his role in "This is Us," Peter Dinklage for his role in "Game of Thrones," and David Harbour for his role in "Stranger Things."
Jennifer Aniston has also received a nomination for Outstanding Performance by Female Actor in a Drama Series. She'll be competing against Jelena Bonham Carter and Olivia Coleman for their roles in "The Crown," Jodie Comer for her role in "Killing Eve," and Elisabeth Moss for her role in "The Handmaid's Tale."
In October, Aniston had reported that the quality of AppleTV+ was a deciding factor for her return to the small screen.
Apple has also earned three Golden Globe nominations for The Morning show— a nomination for best television drama series, and two for best actress. The awards will be announced on January 5, 2020.
Apple has also won Emmys for "Carpool Karaoke" and a technical Emmy for Siri integration into Apple TV hardware.
Apple is also believed to be planning to release films theatrically ahead of their screening on Apple TV+ in order that they can qualify for other awards.
The 77th Golden Globes were announced live today and featured 25 categories across film and television. "The Morning Show" was the sole Apple TV+ series to gain nominations.
