The SAG nominations are out—and are quite interesting!
They don't nominate movies, per se, they nominate cast performances, so The Kids Are All Right definitely had a leg up in that regard over other probably Oscar contenders considering the powerful punch packed by Annette Bening, Julianne Moore (who was snubbed in the actress category) and Mark Ruffalo (snubbed by the Globes but recognized here). Still, I was happy to see that the Kids cast was honored along with the casts of Black Swan, The King's Speech, The Social Network and The Fighter.
For actress, it looks like Moore was passed over in favor of Hilary Swank in Conviction, which surprises me.
On the TV side, it's Boardwalk Empire, The Closer, Dexter, The Good Wife and Mad Men for drama, all shows I've been encouraged to watch and all shows I've managed to completely avoid for whatever reason. But the biggest shockers are nominations for Hot in Cleveland and for Betty White; White managed to land an actress nomination despite being a supporting member of an ensemble cast, so will compete against Tina Fey, Edie Falco, Jane Lynch and Sofia Vergara. (I previously hated Hot in Cleveland; I now like it. But best comedy???)
Wish the Oscar nominations came out sooner...I hate how the Oscar nominations come out so late that they feel almost molded by what's come before.
Lots of chat about the SAGs here.
