It's unofficially award show season, and the nominees for the 26th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced Wednesday.

"Bombshell," "The Irishman" and "Once Upon a Time ... in Hollwyood" lead the pack with four nominations each.

While nominations for films made by decorated directors Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantin were expected, "Bombshell," with its mixed critical reception, stands out as a less predictable favorite.

Also noteworthy is "Parasite's" best ensemble nod, as the Korean dark comedy is the second foreign-language film in SAG Awards history to be nominated in the top category. Only "Life Is Beautiful" managed to do it before, in 1997.

Actress Scarlett Johansson has two nominations: one for her lead role in "Marriage Story" and one for her supporting role in "JoJo Rabbit."

Many see the SAG Awards as a predictor for Oscar wins as, historically, the best ensemble nomination is usually a prerequisite for any best-picture contender's resume.

Recently, however, a SAG ensemble nomination hasn't been quite as vital for a best-picture winner at the Oscars. The last two winners, "Green Book" and "The Shape of Water," managed the feat without a nod for the screen actors' top award.

In television categories, Apple TV-Plus' recently launched "The Morning Show" scored three nods (Jennifer Aniston, Steve Carell, Billy Crudup). In best drama series ensemble, the actors nominated the casts of "Big Little Lies," "The Crown," "Game of Thrones," "The Handmaid's Tale" and "Stranger Things." Comedy ensemble nods went to "Barry," "Fleabag," "The Kominsky Method" and "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."
