Why Anya Taylor-Joy Skipped the 2023 SAG Awards

Anya Taylor-Joy made a splash last Sunday on the BAFTA Awards in her brown mini dress and giant cape ensemble. But tonight, the fashion-forward actress selected to skip this evening’s Screen Actors Guild Awards. Her absence isn’t too surprising: Taylor-Joy isn’t nominated for anything this yr, nor did her film The Menu, which was nominated at other ceremonies, make the list of SAG Award nominees.

As none of her projects are being recognized, there was no reason for Taylor-Joy to make the long trek from London, where the BAFTAs were held, to Los Angeles for the SAG Awards.

Taylor-Joy was last photographed in London this week, having fun with an evening out along with her partner Malcolm McRae on February 24.

Taylor-Joy spoke to Harper’s Bazaar UK in December about why she likes going from project to project, with little break in between. “I work back-to-back,” she said. “Characters are real people for me, and I mourn them after they’re gone. So with the ability to jump from the skin of 1 person into the following reasonably quickly, actually helps me compartmentalize my feelings. I give myself an hour to breathe after which I even have to let it go and move on to the following thing the following day. I’m proud that I’ve kept up with that.”

She added that she truthfully can’t pick a favourite movie or TV show she’s ever done. “Trying to choose a project that I’m most pleased with is like trying to choose between children,” she told the outlet with amusing. “Even for those who do have a favourite, you’re not speculated to say it!”
