SAG Awards Nominations Announced

Just a month and a half to go before one of the first big events in the Hollywood back-patting season begins - The Screen Actors' Guild awards, taking place on January 29, 2012.

Today they revealed their shortlist, featuring all the nominations in both TV and film. You can find the film nods here below, and if you're after the TV list too, you probably best head to their website, where everything can be found in full.

As for what can be gleaned from this list, it seems that the performers-only gongs the SAG give away every year are favouring The Help, with four nominations under their collective belt.

Stunts
Is SAG going to be the first acting awards show to recognise stunt performers? That's so cool! More

Where the F*CK ...
... is Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy on that list? It's more than worthy of a lead actor nod, several supporting actor nods and, of course, it has the finest ensemble of outstanding actors I've seen in years. I thought maybe it was because TTSS only came out in November in the U.S., but then so did J.Edgar apparently, so am I right in thinking that SAG are a bunch of dog lickers or have I just got the wrong end of the stick? I wouldn't give you one Gary Oldman for 10 of your Brad Pitts! More
