#ToppleThePatriarchy 

Awards season is shaping up to be a fairly queer-friendly time as SAG Awards nominations were announced Wednesday morning by Laverne Cox and Awkwafina. Some of our faves who made the cut? Glee's Darren Criss, Mother Monster Lady Gaga and Mahershala Ali, of Moonlight fame.

Check out our list of some of the folks we're rooting for when the show comes around January 27.

Penelope Cruz, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story

For playing Donatella Versace, Penelope Cruz is nominated for best female actor in a television movie or limited series. I'm just excited to see her red carpet lewks.

Darren Criss, The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story

Darren Criss is on a mission to get me to stop calling him an alumnus of Glee as he pulls in another nod for his role as Andrew Cunanan, the killer of Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace. He's nominated for best male actor in a television movie or limited series.

Alex Borstein, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

I've never seen an episode of the surely charming show, but I know Alex Borstein deserves. She's a perennial Hollywood fave who deserves some flowers, finally. She's nominated for best female actor in a comedy series.

Robin Wright, House of Cards

If only because trash men need to know that women and Hollywood will go on without them, Robin Wright deserves recognition. She's nominated for best female actor in a drama series.

Mahershala Ali, Green Book

I stand by my belief that the best part about Green Book is that we now know the name of a queer black pianist whose story was previously untold. And Mahershala Ali's continued recognition, this time as best actor in a supporting role, honors that history.

Lady Gaga, A Star is Born

My queer card might be revoked for this, but I just want to see her get on stage and talk about 100 people in a room and the one that believed in her for a good laugh. She's nominated for best female actor in a leading role.

Crazy Rich Asians

So many movies this year could've been nominated for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture, but Crazy Rich Asians deserves this recognition more than any other. Put some respect on Michelle Yeoh's name!
