After yesterday’s wonky Golden Globe nominations, the Screen Actors Guild Awards are here to make us feel warm and fuzzy again. Announced this morning by Daveed Diggs and (now Golden Globe–nominated) Lily Collins on Instagram Live, the nominations are often considered a predictor for the Academy Awards. This year, The Crown and Schitt’s Creek led the television nominees, earning five nods apiece. The late Chadwick Boseman set a record, becoming the first person to receive four film nominations in one year.

The nominees are selected by two committees — one for television and one for film — before all 160,000 guild members are allowed to vote for the winners. The ceremony, usually held in late January, was pushed back because of the coronavirus, then pushed back again because of scheduling conflicts with the Grammy Awards. The Screen Actors Guild Awards will be simulcast on TNT and TBS on April 4 at 9 p.m. ET.
