Mary J. Blige has earned a nomination for best supporting actress from the Screen Actors Guild for her work in the Dee Rees directed film Mudbound. The R&B diva has received critically acclaimed reviews for her portrayal of Florence in the WWII drama.

The SAG Awards are considered one of the most accurate predictors of the Oscars.

Acclaimed thriller, Get Out, is also up for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture and the standout star, Daniel Kaluuya, earned a nod for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role.  Denzel Washington scored his seventh SAG nomination for his leading role in, Roman J. Israel, Esq. ABC’s Black-ish and Orange Is The New Black will face off for a win in the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series category with each show getting a spotlight nomination for Anthony Anderson and Uzo Aduba for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series.

Fan-favorite NBC show, This Is Us was nominated for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. And Sterling K. Brown is up for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for his role as Randall Pearson in the primetime series.

In addition to this nomination, Blige was also nominated for a Golden Globe for best supporting actress for her Mudbound role, as well as for the song she co-wrote for the film, “Mighty River.” The film is an adaptation of a 2009 novel by Hillary Jordan that tells the story of the relationship between a black and white family during the Jim Crow era, which Blige told EW made it “very important” for her to do. And as for the accolades she’s already receiving? “I’m just so grateful — too grateful.”

Mudbound is currently streaming on Netflix so make sure you check it out!  The SAG Awards will be aired live on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. ET/5 pm. PT on Sunday, Jan. 21.
