The nominees for the 17th Screen Actors Guild were announced Thursday morning and The Social Network, Black Swan, The Fighter, The Kids Are All Right and The King's Speech continue their movie reign over the awards season thus far.
Much like the Golden Globe Award nominations (which were announced on Tuesday) the SAGs celebrate work in both film and television. But rather than the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, these accolades are from their fellow actors and actresses.
Many of the SAG nominations echoed the Golden Globes for the movie categories -- and it's starting to look like Jesse Eisenberg, Colin Firth, Natalie Portman, Annette Bening, Christian Bale, Jennifer Lawrence, Mila Kunis, Jeremy Renner, and host James Franco should start prepping their acceptance speeches for the 2011 Academy Awards.
Several TV categories also looked similar to the Globes. Awards show veterans like Mad Men, Glee, Modern Family and 30 Rock were joined by outstanding newcomer Boardwalk Empire and the cast of the autism biopic Temple Grandin.
But there were still plenty of surprises and snubs!
In the lead acting film categories, Blue Valentine's Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams (both Globe nominees) had to make way for Get Low's Robert Duvall and an out-of-nowhere nom for Conviction's Hilary Swank. In supporting acting, The Social Network's Andrew Garlfield got edged out by Winter's Bone actor John Hawkes.
While True Grit was completely shut out by the Globes, the western remake caught the attention of SAG, as its stars Jeff Bridges and Hailee Steinfeld (watch out for her, she is the next big thing!) both received noms.
And there was one Golden Globe favorite that was noticeably absent from the SAG nods. Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp's The Tourist got no love from SAG. The high-wattage stars got best actress and actor nods and the film (surprisingly) got recognized in the best movie comedy or musical category for the Globes. But it seems SAG is less concerned with an A-list red carpet.
There were some pleasant surprises in the TV categories, as well. For instance, more of the men of Modern Family finally got some love. Eric Stonestreet, a Globe nominee, took a backseat to his costars Ty Burrell and Ed O'Neill for best actor in a comedy.
