Awards season officially kicked into high gear Thursday morning, with the announcement of the nominations for the 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards – roundly considered the strongest prognosticators of the performance Oscars.
Among the top SAG contenders are cast members of The Fighter – though leading man Mark Wahlberg didn’t make the cut, while supporting players Christian Bale, Melissa Leo and Amy Adams did – and The King’s Speech, Black Swan and The Kids Are All Right (minus Julianne Moore).
In the TV categories, such stalwarts as 30 Rock and Mad Men, along with their stars and featured actors, Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin, and Jon Hamm and Elisabeth Moss, were recognized, as were cast members from the newcomers Modern Family and Boardwalk Empire.
