On Thursday afternoon, the contenders for this year’s SAG Awards were announced in a virtual live-stream by Emily In Paris star Lily Collins and Daveed Diggs of Hamilton fame.
During the stream, it was revealed that Michaela was among the five contenders in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series category.
Nominated alongside Michaela are Nicole Kidman for The Undoing, Anya Taylor-Joy for The King’s Gambit, Cate Blanchett for Mrs America and Kerry Washington for Little Fires Everywhere.
A day earlier, the Golden Globes faced a backlash when the BBC-HBO drama was completely absent from its list of nominees, despite proving hugely popular with critics and viewers.
Michaela isn’t the only person snubbed by the Golden Globes to be recognised by the SAG Awards, though.
The show itself is also up for Outstanding Performance By An Ensemble In A Drama Series.
Check out the full list of SAG Awards nominees – which includes British talent like Olivia Colman, Riz Ahmed, Emma Corrin, Daniel Kaluuya and Hugh Grant – here.
