Sophia Bush and Common revealed the nominations for the 23rd annual Screen Actors Guild Award and needless to say, they turned several heads.

Jimmy Kimmel hosted the 68th Primtime Emmy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday in a swiftly-paced event that saw plenty of perennial favorites take home statues, including Game of Thrones and Veep, as well as some first-time wins for stars Kate McKinnon, Rami Malek, and Tatiana Maslany. See the full list of winners from television’s biggest night.
This year’s nominations included the usual appearances from House Of Cards, Game Of Thrones, and Modern Family as well as attention for newcomers like Mr. Robot, The Night Manager, and Master Of None.
Kerry Washington is set to lead as Anita Hill, with Wendell Pierce as Clarence Thomas. Jeffrey Wright and Allison Wright have also joined the top notch cast.
