It’s about damn time.

As much success as Yellowstone has seen over the past few years, they’ve somehow managed to get snubbed by the all the awards shows, year in and year out.

Until now…

Finally, Yellowstone has received a nomination in the top category of ensemble in a television drama at this year’s SAG Awards, alongside Succession, Squid Game, The Morning Show, and The Handmaid’s Tale, according to Variety.

Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan expressed his excitement for the nomination in a statement:

“There’s no bigger compliment to an actor than being recognized by their peers.

Congratulations to our incredibly talented cast on this wonderful and well deserved nomination.”

However, the show didn’t receive any individual nominations, which is kinda surprising considering the show boasts a loaded cast of Kevin Costner, Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Cole Hauser, Wes Bentley, and Gil Birmingham.

Needless to say, the show is deserving of some recognition from the SAG Awards, considering the fact that it keeps breaking records on most views of all time for a TV show.

The show’s season four finale saw a staggering 9.3 million viewers between the Paramount Network and CMT.

Chris McCarthy, President and CEO of ViacomCBS Media Networks said in a statement:

“Yellowstone continues to shatter records… proving we’ve hit the cultural nerve– from the center of the country to each of the coasts– and still have lots of room to grow on linear.”

“Our strategy to franchise ‘Yellowstone’ into a universe of series to fuel growth for Paramount Plus is already exceeding expectations with ‘1883’ and ‘Mayor of Kingstown’ proving to be two of the top titles.”

The ceremony will be aired live on TNT and TBS from The Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, on February 27th.
