sag-awards2The Screen Actors Guild have announced the nominees for their annual awards, with more than a few surprises among them. In the leading male actor category SAG have somehow deemed fit to not nominate Joaquin Phoenix for his incredible performance in The Master, and yet have recognised co-star Phillip Seymour Hoffman in the supporting male actor category. John Hawkes is finally getting some recognition for his role in The Sessions, while Denzel Washington starts his Oscar race with a nomination for Flight. The leading female actor category seems to be a little more stable, with all actresses aside from Helen Mirren receiving nominations or wins in other awards.

In the supporting categories it is great to see Alan Arkin nominated for Argo and Helen Hunt for The Sessions. I was a little surprised to see Maggie Smith receive a nod for Marigold Hotel; but she is definitely popular among the Hollywood royalty so that could account for that. Nicole Kidman also received a nomination for The Paperboy – I believe this is a little bit of a surprise and her name hasn’t come up before. It’s surprising to see no nomination for Amy Adams and her fantastic supporting performance in The Master.
