'Cake' is becoming Aniston's new indie calling card

We are in the middle of what could be a career-changing two-day span for Jennifer Aniston.

By Thursday morning she may have a Golden Globe nomination to go along with it.

Guys, we need to talk about Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Minnie Driver in 'Beyond the Lights'

Guys, we need to talk about Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Minnie Driver in 'Beyond the Lights'

These two should be in the conversation to win, OK?

This morning's Screen Actors Guild nominations made one thing abundantly clear that has been pretty much at the forefront of much of the awards discussion this season: there is room to maneuver in the lead and supporting actress categories. Jennifer Aniston ("Cake") and Naomi Watts ("St. Vincent") each found an angle and made their way in. But there are two performances in one film that frankly deserve to be in the conversation to win each of those categories, yet neither is getting any traction. It's time we talked about Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Minnie Driver in Gina Prince-Bythewood's "Beyond the Lights."

Best and Worst of the 2015 SAG Awards nominations

Best and Worst of the 2015 SAG Awards nominations

Tatiana Maslany, 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' Jessica Chastain and more

You're always going to snub someone during awards season. It's inevitable.  Happily, however, the 2015 SAG Awards nominations didn't include as many of the head scratching nominations as we've seen in previous years.  Sure, Naomi Watts' nomination for "St. Vincent" is quizzical, at best, but we've moved on from Helen Mirren getting a lead actress nod for "Hitchcock" or Betty White's illustrious "Hot in Cleveland" run (and we love us some Betty White).

Harvey Weinstein finally launches Oscar campaign for his estranged child, 'The Immigrant'

The awards season titan reconsiders James Gray’s drama

Artful film defenders, nostalgic baby boomers, and Marion Cotillard devotees were up in arms earlier this year when The Weinstein Company picked up James Gray’s "Godfather"-esque "The Immigrant" out of the Cannes Film Festival, only to lock the film in a dungeon, let it suffer in solitary confinement for months, dump it into a few theaters, then quietly hand it off to Netflix where it could fade into obscurity. Don’t try to understand Harvey Weinstein’s logic — he’s the man who beat "Saving Private Ryan" with "Shakespeare in Love," a campaign we’re still talking about 16 years later. So when word comes in that TWC is finally giving "The Immigrant" an awards push — in the form of an online FYC and a few Academy screenings — we need to accept this is all part of Harvey’s grand plan.

Ethan Hawke on 'Boyhood' awards success: 'I feel like we crashed the party'

The actor reacts to his SAG nominations and the chance to be a steward for co-stars Ellar Coltrane and Lorelei Linklater

"Boyhood" has been steamrolling in the critics phase of the awards season, something we all saw coming. But today the film received some real, tangible love from an actual industry organization: the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette were chalked up in the supporting races, while the film's cast was nominated in the ensemble category. For Hawke, it all makes for the biggest of cherries on top of a hugely fulfilling creative endeavor.
