The SAG Award Noms Highlight “Les Miserables”, “Lincoln” and Maggie Smith!

anne hThe Oscar front-runners heard their names a lot at this morning’s SAG Award Nominations with Lincoln, Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook all nabbing four nominations, but one actor grabbed four nominations as well. That actor is Oscar/Emmy/Golden Globe winner and acting icon Maggie Smith who is in the running in 4 races: Actress Drama Series (Downton Abbey), Drama Series Ensemble (Downton Abbey), Supporting Actress Film (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel), Film Ensemble (The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel). The next most nominated actor was Emmy winner Bryan Cranston who is up for 3 awards: Actor Drama Series (Breaking Bad), Drama Series Ensemble (Breaking Bad), and Film Ensemble (Argo)… There was only one real big surprise in the film race as Nicole Kidman broke through in the Supporting Actress category for the polarizing film The Paperboy. She’s also nominated for Actress in a TV Movie/Miniseries for Hemingway & Gelhorn…. Due to such a crowded year, there were some big omissions including Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams (The Master~ hello, I tell ya they are in trouble come Oscar time, especially Joaquin), Ewan MacGregor (The Impossible), Richard Gere (Arbitrage), Anthony Hopkins (Hitchcock), Eddie Redmayne & Samantha Barks (Les Miserables) and Keira Knightley (Anna Karenina). Also absent was the entire cast of Django Unchained, but that’s what you get for not sending voters screeners and having your screening like the day before ballots were due and many of them not even being let into the screening in favor of execs and reporters. Bad move Weinstein… And an FYI~ the great little star of Beasts of the Southern Wild, Quevanzhane Wallis was ineligible because that film was a non-union (i.e.: non-SAG) production.
On the TV side, Homeland, Downton Abbey grabbed 3 nominations apiece while Modern Family led the race with 4 nominations. Interestingly, the only actor nominated on the Drama side from a network series is Juliana Marguiles from The Good Wife. Uh oh, the networks better work a littler harder on their development side before the drama category completely goes to cable… At least they still did well on the Comedy side….
