Both Steven Yeun and Michaela Coel were snubbed by the Golden Globe nominations on Wednesday, but the Screen Actors Guild Awards have helped right that wrong by nominating both actors and their respective projects.

Norman Lear to receive the Carol Burnett Award at the 2021 Golden Globes

  Norman Lear to receive the Carol Burnett Award at the 2021 Golden Globes The creator of All in the Family and One Day at a Time will be the third recipient of this award.

DeMille Award at 2021 Golden Globes | THR News (The Hollywood Reporter) Your browser does not support this video Jane Fonda will be honored with the film equivalent of this award, the Cecil B. DeMille Award. Lear has won many Golden Globes himself. Maude, Sanford and Son, Good Times, One Day at a Time, and Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman are among his lauded career creations for the small screen. And now many of them are getting reimagined.

The SAG Awards just nominated Steven Yeun for best actor. They also nominated his costar, Youn Yuh-jung, for best supporting actress, and "Minari" got a nod in the best ensemble category, too - the SAG equivalent of best picture.

Meanwhile, Michaela Coel was nominated for best actress in a TV movie or limited series.

Fans were left dismayed on Wednesday when Michaela Coel and her TV show "I May Not Destroy You" were left out of all Golden Globe categories on Wednesday. Many called out the decision and lamented the fact that shows such as "Emily in Paris" were nominated, but not the critically acclaimed "I May Not Destroy You."

'Bridgerton' received 0 Golden Globe nominations and fans are calling the snub 'beyond comprehension'

  'Bridgerton' received 0 Golden Globe nominations and fans are calling the snub 'beyond comprehension' Both critics and viewers revered the Regency drama after its premiere on December 25, but it didn't receive a single nod by the upcoming awards show.The eight-part series is showrunner Chris Van Dusen's adaptation of Julia Quinn's best-selling romance novels. It invites viewers into a racially inclusive reimagination of London's early 19th-century high-society marriage market.

Steven Yeun wasn't nominated at the Globes either, while a much-maligned Golden Globes rule meant that "Minari" was ineligible for a best picture drama nomination. Because 70% of "Minari" was spoken in Korean, the film was classified as a foreign language film and not allowed to be nominated for best picture drama.

Many argued that "Minari" - which is American-produced, directed by Denver-born filmmaker Lee Isaac Chung, and explores very American themes - is one of the most American movies of the year. The ruling felt especially unjust considering 70% of the Quentin Tarantino movie "Inglourious Basterds," which was nominated for best drama at the Globes in 2009, is spoken in languages other than English.

These SAG Awards nominations aren't a total surprise. Michaela Coel has plenty of celebrity supporters of her work, including many actors who make up SAG voters.

The team behind "Minari," meanwhile, should be looking ahead to the Oscars. While the Golden Globes aren't always the most reliable predictor of Oscar nominees and winners, the SAG Awards definitely are. This is good news for Lee Isaac Chung's movie and gives both Yeun and Youn excellent chances at nabbing their first Oscar nominations, while "Minari" is now in a great position to land a best picture nomination.

In 'Minari,' harvesting an American dream .
NEW YORK (AP) — The riverbed, more than anything else, needed to be exactly right. In Lee Isaac Chung’s Arkansas-set family drama, “Minari,” land is something more than a setting. It’s a future. It’s a dream. Jacob Yi (Steven Yeun) has moved his family to a wide-open Arkansas plot to farm the land and, hopefully, release him and his wife from years of toil at poultry plants. He tills it not for the area’s typical crops but for vegetables common to Korean cooking that he believes will feed other Korean immigrants like himself. His mother-in-law (Youn Yuh-jung) also finds a gentle creek bed to grow minari, the leafy vegetable popular in Korea.
