SAG Noms Announced; Plus AFI and DC Crix

Dame Maggie Smith reacting to her SAG nominations: "Only four?"

Award season continues with the announcement this morning for the SAG Awards and just for giggles, I added the results of the Washington DC Film Critics Association voting and the American Film Institute Awards which only go to the best picture. The biggest SAG snubs were probably Joaquin Phoenix being overlooked for The Master and Emmanuelle Riva getting a cold shoulder for Amour, but that latter is probably understandable since its a little-known foreign film adored by critics and not seen by as many thousands of members of the randomly selected SAG nominating committee.For once, Zero Dark Thirty did not dominate, garnering fewer SAG noms than Lincoln, Silver Linings Playbook, and Les Miz. New contenders who have not shown up in other award lists are Helen Mirren in Hitchcock, Maggie Smith in The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and Nicole Kidman in The Paperboy (huh?, that last one came and went really quickly in October according to imdb). Smith is also nominated as part of the Marigold ensemble and for Downton Abbey (individually and as part of the ensemble) in the TV categories. The tightest race for the Oscars look like best actor with only six credible candidates emerging from all the critics and SAG awards. 

Another interesting thing: We saw The Sessions last night and to me Helen Hunt is the leading actress of that movie, not supporting. The Golden Globe nominees are announced tomorrow.
