SAG Awards: America's most popular show 'Yellowstone' FINALLY gets nominated after 4 years
Snubbed for years, 'Yellowstone' finally broke into the top awards race with a nomination at this year's Screen Actors Guild awards
‘Yellowstone’ has been one of the most extraordinary shows on TV and is responsible for giving fans several iconic moments over the years. Despite being so popular and acclaimed, the show never got to receive the recognition that it deserves. For the last four years, the Paramount show has received universal acclaim for its storyline and characters. Even then, it was snubbed at every single award ceremony and didn’t get a nomination in the main categories.
But, times have changed now and ‘Yellowstone’ is finally getting some love from the award shows. Rosario Dawson and Vanessa Hudgens announced the nominations for this year’s Screen Actors Guild awards and the ‘Yellowstone’ fandom erupted with joy when the show’s name was revealed in the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series category.
The show will be going for the award against the likes of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’, ‘The Morning Show’, ‘Squid Game’ and ‘Succession’.
Taylor Sheridan, who is the co-creator of the Paramount show, could not contain his excitement and noted that there’s no “bigger compliment” than this. Sheridan said, “There’s a no bigger compliment to an actor than being recognized by their peers. Congratulations to our incredibly talented cast on this wonderful and well-deserved nomination.”
As soon as the news of ‘Yellowstone’ getting a nomination surfaced online, fans lit up the social media with amazing reactions and said that the show finally got what it deserved since the beginning. One of the fans wrote, “Great news! Yellowstone has been overlooked since season 1 for the outstanding show that it is. It’s the best on TV!” Another fan shared, “Should have been recognized a few years earlier. Those big numbers this year couldn’t be denied. Great job team Yellowstone.”

One of the ardent fans of the show wrote, “Exactly what this show deserves! Great actors and actresses, great script and writers. It’s about time Yellowstone is recognized.” Another fan said, “I am in total agreement!!! Love some Yellowstone-the cast is soo amazing, the writing, etc.! Sundays have not been the same since the season ended!!! So excited for this show to be nominated!”
“@Yellowstone has been so underrated by every award show out there! #KellyReilly so deserves the best actress nomination and a win…Finally, The SAG awards Recognize #Yellowstone is one of the best shows on television,” another fan opined.
The nominations come a couple of weeks after it was revealed that 11 million viewers tuned in to watch the final of Season 4, becoming the most-watched TV episode since 2017. So, it doesn’t come as a shock that SAG finally decided to reward the show for such an incredible feat.
