Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role
Eddie Redmayne, “The Theory of Everything”
“To be nominated by my peers, and to be included in a list that 
is comprised of so many actors I admire, is an incredible honor. 
And to be recognized alongside Felicity and my castmates means 
the world. Huge, huge thanks to SAG-AFTRA; 
I am beyond grateful.”
Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role
Felicity Jones, “The Theory of Everything”
"Thank you to SAG-AFTRA for this very special nomination; 
it's an honor to have such recognition from one's fellow actors. 
I feel privileged to be a part of Jane and Stephen Hawking's 
unique story, and it is really wonderful to be enjoying this moment 
with Eddie Redmayne and the rest of the phenomenal cast."

...The Fault in Our Stars actor spoke with us after the nominations and explained why he was so excited for Eddie Redmayne to receive the honour: "I have always admired Eddie Redmayne I saw him in Red on Broadway. I think that was one of the first things he did. It was him and Alfred Molina, he was incredible in that. I saw that when I was about 15 or 16 and I love it and I looked up to him a lot."
And just like a regular fan Ansel actually waited for the star outside to get some advice!
"I spoke to him at the stage door and I said hey man I loved you in this and I want to be an actor and he said 'Oh ya? Keep working hard.' So, ya I really like Eddie Redmayne. I hope that I see him and say 'Hi' to him and I'll say you defiantly don't remember I said 'Hi' to you once when I was 16... because I thought he was incredible in that and it's nice that he got nominated for The Theory of Everything."
Two years after Ansel was starring in his first film Carrie - so all you fans out there... you might want to give Eddie a big "Thank You!" for speaking with the young star and cheering him on....
