Screen Actors Guild Awards get 'Wild'

20

December

Wild

The Screen Actors Guild Award nominees were announced Thursday, and surprise, surprise — Atonement, which led the Golden Globes nominees last week, was nowhere to be found. Instead it was Sean Penn’s Into The Wild leading the pack, with four nominations, including one for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture (the SAG’s equivalent of a Best Picture award.) Other top nominees: No Country For Old Men, Hairspray, American Gangster and 3:10 to Yuma. Our favorite part of the SAG Awards, though, is the ensemble acting award, which goes to the entire cast of a movie. Invariably, some, um, surprising names end up in great films, which means those actors end up winning a SAG Award for their work. That means folks like Zac Efron (Hairspray), RZA (American Gangster) and Vince Vaughn (Into The Wild) are all nominated for a SAG Award. The good news: Tampa’s Brittany Snow, another member of the Hairspray cast, is also nominated. Local girl makes good!

Below you'll find the nominees in the major categories for the movie awards, via the Screen Actors Guild Web site. We're not including the TV awards, because frankly, who gives a flying feather duster about TV these days, when the writers strike is sticking us with reruns every night. Bring us fresh meat!
