2018 SAG Award nominees: Young stars take over as Timothee Chalamet, Saoirse Ronan and Millie Bobby Brown snag top nominations

The rumblings of awards season 2018 are well underway.

The Screen Actors Guild Awards are historically a strong predictor of which films and stars will take home Academy Awards a month later. That's in part because there's a lot of overlap between voting members of SAG and those of the Academy.

Early awards season frontrunners are Timothee Chalamet, James Franco, Saoirse Ronan and Margot Robbie, all of whom received Best Actor or Actress nominations for both the SAG Awards and the Golden Globes. Absent from the list are Emma Stone ("Battle of the Sexes"), Armie Hammer and Michael Stuhlbarg ("Call Me By Your Name") and Meryl Streep ("The Post").

See the full list of SAG Award nominees:

SAG Awards 2017: Best and worst dressed

WORST: "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco raised eyebrows in this multi-colored gown with way too much tulle.

BEST: SLAY! Taraji P. Henson was the definition of "fierce" in this see-through gown that showed a lotta boob!

WORST: Nicole Kidman definitely went for a dramatic look. Her sequined green dress features two parrots on the shoulder. This may be too wild of an ensemble for us ...

BEST: Julie Bowen turned heads with this unexpected look! The "Modern Family" star rocked a super sheer dress that left very little to the imagination.

WORST: Kate Hudson rocked a sheer black dress that gave a view of her undergarments, but it's the bizarre detailing on her waist that turned heads.

BEST: Wow! "Modern Family" star Ariel Winter dazzled in one of her best red carpet looks to date. The actress was a total stunner in a see-through gold gown with a plunging neckline that showed off her cleavage. She kept her short tresses in waves while rocking a bold red lip.

WORST: Salma Hayek hit the red carpet in head-turning fashion, wearing a bright yellow dress that couldn't be missed. She looks like she's ready to hit the dance floor instead of a red carpet!

BEST: Felicity Huffman blew us away in this neutral colored gown with sheer panels throughout. It perfectly shows off those arms that even Michell Obama would be envious of!

WORST: Michelle Williams showed off her tiny figure in a slinky dress. The actress definitely caught the eye of everyone there -- but the stripes were totally unflattering.

BEST: She's so grown up! Maisie Williams looked totally classy in a silk pink gown that perfectly draped her flawless figure.

WORST: Angela Sarafyan took a risk with a paisley print dress (and with a magenta hue on top of it!) -- and it definitely didn't pay off!

BEST: Brie Larson looked stunning as always, opting for a classy white gown with a subtle slit and a halter neckline.

WORST: Jenifer Lewis was certainly feeling fierce in this animal print suit, but it gave off the tacky vibe instead.

BEST: White hot! Actress Viola Davis looks so sophisticated in a white gown with a fancy neckline, complete with some bling to match!

WORST: Of course, Amy Landecker had to join her outfit twin! This print is way too bold for the "Transparent" star.

BEST: Leggy lady! Chrissy Teigen didn't have a wardrobe mishap this time around, but she did leave us talking with her stunning gown.

BEST: Stunning! Sophie Turner redeemed herself after a horrible Golden Globes gown with this bright red number. She looks great!

WORST: Stripes for days! Mayim Bialik rocked a patterned, multi-colored dress that did nothing for her stunning frame.

BEST: Lady in red! Actress Annalise Basso was truly elegant in a red off-the-shoulder gown.

(Photo credit should read FREDERIC J. BROWN/AFP/Getty Images)

BEST: Pregnant or not, Natalie Portman's red carpet fashion is flawless every time. This fresh-off-the-runway look is absolutely stunning.

WORST: Actress Busy Philipps camo print gown was way too much for us to handle!

Our 11 Favorite Movies of 2017

Sweet, funny and a modern twist on the classic rom-com, "The Big Sick" is just about universally likable. While lighthearted, it carries a meaningful message that will ring true for parents and their adult children.

Emotionally prepare yourself before watching "The Florida Project," a top Oscar contender for the year. Poignant and aesthetically lovely, the sunny Orlando setting mirrors the cheerful energy of its young protagonist -- while contrasting the darkness of the adult world she lives in. Fingers crossed for an Oscar nom for little Brooklynn Prince, who at just 7 years old delivered one of the best performances of the year.
James and Dave Franco co-star in "The Disaster Artist," an unexpected film that leaves entire theater audiences in stitches. Whether or not you're familiar with cult classic "The Room," the bizarre real-life movie within this one, you'll be fascinated, bamboozled and quite entertained by James Franco's take on oddity filmmaker Tommy Wiseau.
"Spider-Man: Homecoming" may not go down as Marvel's most memorable movie -- but to be fair, there are a lot of them. It's fun and appropriately goofy while still packing a punch (literally and figuratively), and Tom Holland is (in our opinion) the best Spider-Man to date.

A tragic romance unlike any other painted on-screen, "Call Me By Your Name" explores the building sexual tension between two young men in 1981. In falling for the older, handsome Oliver, 17-year-old Elio finds himself longing to not only be with him but also be like him, attempting to transform his self-loathing into self-reflection.

As one of the biggest box-office hits of the year, Gal Gadot smashed superhero records with "Wonder Woman." It's a must-see for anyone who loves action, adventure and the kind of woman we all dream of calling a best friend or life partner.
Harrison Ford and Ryan Gosling make an unflappable duo in "Blade Runner 2049." Note: It'll make more sense -- and carry much more weight -- for anyone who's seen the original 1982 film.
It's not out yet in theaters, but movie critics are already giving the thumbs-up to "Star Wars: The Last Jedi." After teasing us with just a glimpse of Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker at the end of "The Force Awakens," the eighth installment features Luke more heavily, much to fans' satisfaction.
Who doesn't love Reese Witherspoon? "Home Again" is one of her sweetest films to date, the perfect flick for a girls' night in (or to force your husband to watch with you). Her three young male co-stars aren't bad to look at, either.
Sequels often fall flat, but "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" managed to best its predecessor -- and not just because Baby Groot is so cute. Chris Pratt's undying charisma carries the film in one of Marvel's weirdest but most fun flicks to date.
Just about everyone who's seen "Lady Bird" wants Saoirse Ronan to snag a Best Actress nomination. It's similar to "Juno "(2007) but perhaps more true-to-life and edgy, with a compelling mother-daughter story that will leave you reflecting on your own teenage years.
