Screen Actors Guild Nominations

The SAG nominees have been announced today, and there are a few surprises, but we have seen a lot of the same names over the past couple days. Precious, Inglourious Basterds, and Up in the Air were the big winners with three nominees each, but the snub for Up in the Air in the ensemble category is puzzling considering Clooney, Kendrick, and Farmiga were all nominated in their respective categories.

The success of Inglourious Basterds seems to be the big surprise, particularly the nomination for Diane Kruger in the supporting category. It's a fine performance, but one that hasn't received much Awards attention. It's also encouraging to see Jeremy Renner score a nomination for his performance in The Hurt Locker. He's still on the Oscar bubble, but any buzz for him is a great thing to see.
