They like them. They really, really like them.

Screen Actors Guild members were so enamored with Glenn Close and Betty White this year that they nominated each actress twice for SAG Awards.

Close, 64, picked up two best-actress nods – one in the film category for Albert Nobbs, in which she plays a woman masquerading as a man in order to make a living in 19th-century Ireland; and one in the TV-drama category for Damages.

White, 89, also earned two best-actress nods – one in TV comedy for her sitcom Hot in Cleveland; and one in the TV movie or miniseries category for Hallmark Hall of Fame: The Lost Valentine, a modern-day story about a woman whose Navy husband went missing in World War II.

With the nominations coming in four separate categories, the two actresses could theoretically haul four SAG awards home between them. But which of each actress’s two roles were better?
