SAG Award Nominations

Lincoln, Les Miserables, and Silver Linings Playbook led the Screen Actors Guild nominations this morning with four each, including Best Ensemble.

Hugh Jackman in LES MISERABLES.
The lineup included a few surprises, such as Nicole Kidman for Best Supporting Actress for The Paperboy and Helen Mirren for Best Actress in Hitchcock, as well as Javier Bardem for Best Supporting Actor for Skyfall. This paved the way for the two most egregious omissions, Emmanuelle Riva's devastating performance in Amour was left off the Best Actress list, as was Joaquin Phoenix's obsessive turn in The Master. I would have thought that the actors of all groups would have embraced those two performances.

Here is the list of nominations in the film categories. For the full list, including television categories, click here.
