SAG Takes Out Some Billboards

The Screen Actors Guild added their noms to a recent barrage of same earlier today, with Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri coming out top with four nominations – Best Actress for Frances McDormand, Supporting nods for both Woody Harrelson and Sam Rockwell, and a nod for the overall ensemble.
