This is the week awards season comes into focus.

The Screen Actors Guild unveiled the shortlist for its annual film and television prizes on Wednesday, two days after the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the Golden Globe nominations. Both awards are considered bellwethers for the 2017 Oscar race that began in earnest around Labor Day.

Always one show to offer a few curveballs, the SAG Awards nominated Emily Blunt, whose “Girl on the Train” performance seemed to make her an Oscar also-ran after the movie garnered middling reviews. Blunt and “Florence Foster Jenkins” star Meryl Streep nabbed nods that pundits expected would go to Annette Bening (”20th Century Women”), Isabelle Huppet (”Elle”) or Ruth Negga (”Loving”). SAG also devoted a spot in its top film category to “Captain Fantastic,” which beat out awards-season favorites like “Hacksaw Ridge,” “Hell or High Water,” “La La Land,” “Lion” and “Jackie.” 

Now is the moment you can start prepping your ballots at home. SAG has the highest membership overlap with the Academy’s acting branch, so these awards can be significant indicators of how the Oscars’ acting categories will shake out. One caveat: SAG uses a nominating committee, so its finalists are a mere sample of the Academy’s tastes. There’s still plenty of wiggle room in the Oscar roster, which will be announced on Jan. 24. (Oh, and congrats on your nominations, too, TV folks! Look at Millie Bobby Brown go!)

Sophia Bush and Common announced the nominees during a live-stream in Los Angeles. See the full list below. The SAG Awards air Jan. 29.
