Korean-American comedy drama Minari and Netflix's movie adaptation of the late American playwright August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom tied for the most film nominations with three each. War drama Da 5 Bloods and historical legal drama The Trial of the Chicago 7 also earned three nominations, but one of the nods was in the stunt ensemble category. Da 5 Bloods, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, Minari, One Night in Miami and The Trial of the Chicago 7 will compete for the top prize of SAG Awards - the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture. Two-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand, who plays a woman who loses everything in a recession and embarks on a journey through the American West in Chinese female director Chloe Zhao's feature film Nomadland, will compete against Amy Adams (Hillbilly Elegy), Viola Davis (Ma Rainey's Black Bottom), Vanessa Kirby (Pieces of a Woman) and Carey Mulligan (Promising Young Woman) for the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role. Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm), Glenn Close (Hillbilly Elegy), Olivia Colman (The Father), Youn Yuh-Jung (Minari) and Helena Zengel (News of the World) are nominees for the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role. The late African American actor Chadwick Boseman received two posthumous nominations for his lead performance in Ma Rainey's Black Bottom and his supporting role in Da 5 Bloods. Boseman died of cancer at 43 in last August. Boseman, Riz Ahmed (Sound of Metal), Anthony Hopkins (The Father), Gary Oldman (Mank) and Steven Yeun (Minari) were nominated for the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role. In the race for the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role, he will compete with Sacha Baron Cohen (The Trial of the Chicago 7), Daniel Kaluuya (Judas and the Black Messiah), Jared Leto (The Little Things) and Leslie Odom, Jr. (One Night in Miami).
