The Banshees of Inisherin and Everything Everywhere All at Once lead this year’s Screen Actors Guild nominations.

Martin McDonagh’s dark comedy about a friendship turned sour received five nominations for lead male actor Colin Farrell, supporting female actor Kerry Condon, supporting male actors Barry Keoghan and Brendan Gleeson and the night’s biggest award for ensemble.

In the ensemble category, the film will compete alongside the multiverse fantasy Everything Everywhere All at Once which also received five nominations. Michelle Yeoh was recognised in the lead female actor category while Ke Huy Quan, Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu were all handed supporting nominations.

The two films will face off against Babylon, Women Talking and Steven Spielberg’s autobiographical family drama The Fabelmans for best ensemble, which also picked up a best supporting male actor nod for Paul Dano but his co-star Michelle Williams was snubbed.

In the category of best lead female actor, Yeoh will go up against hot favourite Cate Blanchett for Todd Field’s Tár, Danielle Deadwyler for Till, Ana de Armas for Blonde and Viola Davis for The Woman King.

For best lead male actor, Farrell is alongside Austin Butler for Elvis, Brendan Fraser for The Whale, Bill Nighy for Living and Adam Sandler for Hustle.

In the category of best supporting male actor, favourite Quan, Keoghan, Gleeson and Dano will be up against Eddie Redmayne for The Good Nurse while in the best supporting female actor category, Condon, Curtis and Hsu will be up against Angela Bassett for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever and Hong Chau for The Whale.

On the TV side of things, Netflix’s dark drama Ozark led with four nominations. It was recognised in the drama ensemble alongside The Crown, Better Call Saul, Severance and The White Lotus.

Jason Bateman was also nominated for best male actor in a drama series alongside Better Call Saul’s Bob Odenkirk and Jonathan Banks, The Old Man’s Jeff Bridges and Severance’s Adam Scott.

Laura Linney and Julia Garner were both nominated for best female actor in a drama series up against The White Lotus’s Jennifer Coolidge, The Crown’s Elizabeth Debicki and Euphoria’s Zendaya. Garner was also recognised in the category of female actors in TV movies or limited series for Inventing Anna alongside The English’s Emily Blunt, Jessica Chastain for George & Tammy, Amanda Seyfried for The Dropout and Niecy Nash-Betts for Dahmer.

The male category for TV movies or limited series has Steve Carell for The Patient, Black Bird’s Taron Egerton and Paul Walter Hauser, Sam Elliott for 1883 and Evan Peters for Dahmer.

The comedy ensemble category pits the casts of Abbott Elementary, Only Murders in the Building, Hacks, Barry and The Bear against each other. Lead male actor in a comedy series nominees include both Steve Martin and Martin Short for Only Murders in the Building, Anthony Carrigan and Bill Hader for Barry and Jeremy Allen White for The Bear.

The female comedy category sees Christina Applegate for Dead to Me, Jean Smart for Hacks, Quinta Brunson for Abbott Elementary, Jenna Ortega for Wednesday and Rachel Brosnahan for The Marvelous Mrs Maisel.

The ceremony will take place on 26 February in Los Angeles. Last night saw Cate Blanchett, Austin Butler, Michelle Yeoh and Colin Farrell win the night’s major acting awards at the Golden Globes. This year’s Oscar nominations will be announced on 24 January.
