Lincoln, Les Miserables and Silver Linings Playbook each banked four nominations as the nominees for the 19th annual Screen Actors Guild awards were announced Wednesday, and RadarOnline.com has all the details for you.
Lincoln, the Steven Spielberg-directed Civil War drama, gained nods for best overall cast performance; best lead actor (Daniel Day-Lewis); best supporting actress (Sally Field); and best supporting actor (Tommy Lee Jones).
Director David O. Russell‘s Silver Linings Playbook garnered nods for best overall cast performance; best lead actor (Bradley Cooper); best supporting actress (Jennifer Lawrence); and best supporting actor (Robert De Niro).
Argo and the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel rounded out the best overall cast honors in film; other notable nominees in the genre include Denzel Washington (best lead actor for Flight), Helen Mirren (best lead actress for Hitchcock) and Nicole Kidman (best supporting actress for The Paperboy)
Maggie Smith got four nods for her work in the film Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (best overall cast performance, best supporting actress) and the TV show Downton Abbey (best overall cast performance, best drama actress); and the great Bryan Cranston was cooking as usual, with three nominations — two for Breaking Bad (best actor, best overall cast performance), and a crossover nod for Argo‘s cast performance.
The glaring snub of Wednesday’s nominations was Paul Thomas Anderson‘s critical darling, The Master, as its’ only nomination was for Philip Seymour Hoffman (best supporting actor), leaving Joaquin Phoenix out in the cold two months after his controversial comments about Hollywood’s award season.
“I’m just saying that I think it’s bulls**t,” Phoenix told October’s Interview. “I think it’s total, utter bulls**t, and I don’t want to be a part of it. I don’t believe in it. It’s a carrot, but it’s the worst-tasting carrot I’ve ever tasted in my whole life. I don’t want this carrot.”
Other surprise omissions included Hitchcock‘s Anthony Hopkins and Hyde Park on Hudson‘s Bill Murray.
In TV, the best overall cast performance in a comedy nominees included 30 Rock, The Big Bang Theory, Glee, Modern Family, Nurse Jackie and The Office; while Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, Boardwalk Empire, Homeland and Mad Men are in the running for best drama ensemble.
The show is slated for January 27 at the Los Angeles Shrine Exposition Center, and will be broadcast on TNT and TBS at 8 p.m. ET/ 5 p.m. PT.
