Despite Golden Globes nomination success earlier this week, the Ruth Negga-starring Loving has been surprisingly overlooked on the shortlist for the Screen Actors' Guild (SAG) Awards in the US.

Limerick actress Negga and her Australian co-star Joel Edgerton were nominated in the Golden Globes acting categories on Monday for their performances in Loving, which tells the true story of an illegal interracial marriage in the US state of Virginia in the 1950s.

However, neither Negga nor Edgerton was among the SAG Awards nominees which were announced on Wednesday, and Loving also missed out on an Outstanding Performance by a Cast nomination. Other acclaimed films missing from the shortlist include 20th Century Women, Sully and Martin Scorsese's Silence.

With Negga not in the running, Amy Adams (Arrival), Emily Blunt (The Girl on the Train), Natalie Portman (Jackie), Emma Stone (La La Land) and Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins) are the SAG nominees for Best Actress in a Motion Picture.

Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea), Andrew Garfield (Hacksaw Ridge), Ryan Gosling (La La Land), Viggo Mortensen (Captain Fantastic) and Denzel Washington (Fences) are shortlisted for Best Actor. 

The Oscar-tipped Manchester by the Sea leads the shortlist with four nominations

Manchester by the Sea leads the 2017 SAG Awards nominees with four nominations, while in the TV categories Stranger ThingsThe Crown and The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story all secured three nominations.

Will The People v OJ Simpson: American Crime Story be the big TV winner at the SAG Awards?

The nominees are chosen by 2,500 randomly selected members of the Screen Actors' Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (AFTRA). 

The SAG Awards take place on January 29 at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, with the winners seen as favourites for Oscars glory in February.
