Awards Watch: SAG Nominations 2009

Nominations for the 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were revealed this morning and, just as they always do at this point in award season, things are starting to look awfully familiar. All the usual suspects (Bridges, Clooney, Streep, Mo’Nique) make their usual appearances, with the only real surprise being a supporting nod for Inglourious Basterds' resident femme fatale Diane Kruger.

Her film joins An Education, The Hurt Locker, Nine and Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire in the Ensemble Cast category, leaving no room for front-runner Up in the Air, which should give Oscar bloggers plenty to obsess about over the holiday lull. (For a quick look at all the film nominees, see the comments section below.)

As for the TV nominations, cast honors went to Glee, Modern Family and True Blood, while both Big and Little Edie (Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore) were recognized for HBO's Grey Gardens. They'll compete against Sigourney Weaver from Prayers for Bobby.

The SAG Awards will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on January 23. In addition to the annual awards, the Guild will present their Life Achievement Award to our beloved Betty White.

  2. Just saw Inglourious Basterds, and that IS a masterful ensemble! Diane Kruger was pretty great in it - Like Penelope Cruz, she's best acting in her native tongue!
