Doubt Leads SAG Award Nominations

The members of the Screen Actors Guild recently took a short break from calling for the replacement of their union’s leadership to vote on those which they felt were the year’s best performances. And this morning, in Los Angeles, the nominations for this year’s SAG Awards were announced! Since actors constitute the Academy’s largest voting bloc, SAG’s awards are typically a more accurate Oscar predictor than most of the other meaningless ones you’ve been hearing about lately. Doubt picked up five nods, including ones for Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Viola Davis, plus one for Best Cast (which is basically SAG’s Best Picture). Milk and Benjamin Button tied for three, followed by Frost/Nixon, Slumdog, and The Dark Knight with two each. Somewhat predictably, Wall-E was shut out. The full list (of nominations anyone cares about!) is after the jump.
