Episode 2 of “Stranger Things” is also when Dustin (Gaten Matarazzo), Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) and Mike (Finn Wolfhard) try to figure out what Eleven knows about Will. (Netflix)

As usual, the Screen Actors Guild Award nominations, released Wednesday morning, look fairly similar to the Golden Globes list announced earlier this week, in both the movie and television categories, though there are some key differences. Here are five take-aways from the nominations:

1. “Moonlight,” “Manchester By the Sea” and “Fences” tie for three nominations each. 

The Oscar race is shaping up to look like a fight among “Moonlight,” “Manchester by the Sea” and “La La Land” (which got two noms, one each for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone). But the SAG nominations also boosted Oscar prospects generally for “Fences,” an adaptation of the August Wilson play, nominating it in the category for best overall cast in a motion picture, along with Viola Davis and Denzel Washington for their individual roles.

2. SAG voters really like “Captain Fantastic.”

Viggo Mortensen scored a Golden Globe nod for his role as a father who lives off the grid, deep in the Washington state forests with his six children — but SAG voters, surprisingly, added the film to the cast in a motion-picture category as well, joined by “Moonlight,” “Manchester By the Sea,” “Fences” and “Hidden Figures.” (The acclaimed musical “La La Land,” expected to do quite well at the Oscars, was left out of that category — probably because it is centered on just two people instead of an ensemble.)

3. Some performances overlooked by the Globes made the list.

Although Natalie Portman is the front-runner for female actress in a leading role for “Jackie,” she’s joined by Emily Blunt, who was the highlight of the highly mediocre “The Girl on the Train.” And Lucas Hedges, the young breakout star playing Casey Affleck’s nephew in “Manchester By the Sea,” got a nod for best male actor in a supporting role. On the TV side, Millie Bobby Brown, who stole hearts as the mysterious Eleven in Netflix’s “Stranger Things,” landed a nomination for best actress in a drama.

4. SAG voters watch a lot of Netflix.

Well, who doesn’t? But on the TV side, the streaming service reigned supreme, with multiple nominations for “Stranger Things,” “House of Cards,” “Orange Is the New Black,” “Grace and Frankie,” “The Crown,” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” as well as a nod for “Black Mirror.”

5. Broadcast channels fared slightly better.

Although it feels as if award shows are exclusively for streaming services and premium cable channels these days, SAG voters showed some love to traditional sitcoms that were left off the Globes list, such as “The Big Bang Theory” and “Modern Family.” (“Black-ish,” which landed in the comedy ensemble and lead-actor categories here, landed three Globes nods.)

The SAG Awards air Sunday, Jan. 29, at 8 p.m. on TBS and TNT.
