LIFE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD
Screen Actors Guild Awards 47th Annual Life Achievement Award
Ernest Borgnine.

    1. Um, yeah. Hot in Cleveland.

      Reason? The four lead actresses have all been around the block – heck, in anticipation of the invention of television, they just looked at where Betty White was walking, and built a block there for her to walk around – and they have perfect timing and spot-on punchline delivery. The show itself is a throwback to the multi-cam sitcom heyday of the ’70s – in a comfortable shoe kind of way.

      IMHO, the success of Hot in Cleveland made it easier for the big four to put on shows like Shit My Dad Says and Mike & Molly.

      Raising Hope and Mike & Molly will be sitcom contenders next year.

      1. Hot in Cleveland is (not literally) based on one single episode of 30 Rock. If the writers had any class they’d give credit to their inspiration.

  1. I am so confused. Are my artistic tastes defective? I honestly do not have anything to do with “For Colored Girls.” And I should ad that I am Caucasian. But I am not understanding why THANDIE NEWTON isn’t getting the recognition for her outstanding performance in this film. I understand that people don’t like Tyler Perry, but the film wasn’t bad, and her Performance was phenomenal.

    1. I agree with you about Thandie Newton. Although I haven’t seen ‘For Colored Girls’, I agree that she is a fantastic actress who always, as far as I’ve seen, always gives a stand-out performance. I hope she starts getting the recognition she deserves. (I’ll go ahead and add that I’m white, too)

    2. Thank you for your observation Thandie Newton and Kimberly Elise were amazing as well as the other actresses. One would have thought that at least one of them would get some kind of recognition. But, I guess people, us usual, give into their personal biases. As they say, “its not what you know but who you know”. Maybe Thandie Newton needs to do some more networking with SAG voters and then she will get nominated. I’m also sorry that Halle Berry was not recognized for her work in Frankie and Alice, but I’m happy for Sofia Vergara.

  2. Not hating on Josh Pence, but why was he included in the ensemble? Armie Hammer’s head was pasted onto his body in all his scenes!

    1. ehh.

      I love Andrew Garfield a whole bunch (Boy A, anyone? anyone?), but didn’t think he was quite nomination-worthy in Social Network.

    2. I guess it means more lack of love for TSN by actors than for Garfield as an individual performance. I sense potential Ensemble upset by Fighter (3 acting noms), Black Swan (2 noms, Kunis being a welcome surprise) or King`s Speech (3 noms though all expected). Hopefully Black Swan.

  3. Jeff Bridges is The Dude, but he doesn’t begin to touch the Duke in TRUE GRIT — Wayne played it with humor and style, he did it best and first. The reteam of Bridges and Duvall from CRAZY HEART on this SAG Nom list is bittersweet, because GET LOW wins for Duvall, such a master of the craft. Bridges is the youngster — and Josh Brolin is on track to be everybody’s bad guy after his defaced turn as JONAH HEX and now as the black hat in GRIT. Can someone please remember his performance in MELINDA AND MELINDA as the dentist? Josh is hugely talented and should not always be the guy w/ bad skin.

    (Rent MELINDA AND MELINDA if you haven’t seen it, if only to see Chloe work with Radha in spite of Allen with a little excellent “My Dinner With Andre” writerly explication bookending this picture.)

  4. As someone who was on the SAG nominating committee this year, I can tell you that all SAG nominating committee members are not given access to screen all movies up for consideration. Therefore, the vote tends to be biased to the Hollywood and New York office who have access to all the films. Moreover, the SAG nominating committee do not select the actors for TV. I cannot tell you how that is even done since we are given a booklet which lists all the actors for six catergories: Best Leading Male, Best Leading Female, Best Supporting Male, Best Supporting Female, Best Ensemble and Best Stunt. It is highly disappointing.

  5. SO happy for Natalie Portman! Shes been one of my fav actresses for a while and she ROCKED Black Swan! (Saw it last night) I’m also rooting for 30 Rock and The Office (Always:) I’m interested seeing in the King’s Speech as well as The Fighter too

  6. What incredibly boring nominations except for “Hot in Cleveland” with it’s 2 noms. I’m very happy for Valerie, Wendy and Betty.

    SAG Awards is not really as dependent on ratings like the Oscars and Emmy Awards, but, I can’t imagine anyone tuning into the Oscar Awards that doesn’t normally watch them with the boring movies and nominees that are likely to be vying for the gold. In other words, industry people, women and gay men will be the only ones they can count on tuning in as usual. lol

  7. Tilda Swinton performs her whole role in Italian with a Russian accent to boot and doesn’t deserve a nomination? Those folks voting couldn’t do that, is it jealousy or stupidity?

    At least they got Edgar Ramirez for Carlos, but in the TV movie category? It played in theaters too and was a better performance than any of the feature actors. The voting group at SAG is starting to have the same taste as the People’s Choice Awards. Kill me now.

  8. I’m really surprised Andy Garfield and Armie Hammer are getting snubbed, they both did some of the finest work of the year.

  9. I was on the nomination committee for the SAG Awards. I commend the rest of the committee for being more discerning than the Golden Globes, although I am shocked that neither Thandi Newton, Janet Jackson nor Whoopi Goldberg made the ballot for “For Color Girls.” The ensemble of supporting performances within this film and Michael Ealy were astounding. I also feel like Sam Rockwell deserved a nod but am glad to see Hillary got recognized here.

  10. Hey, what’s the story behind the omission of Rooney Mara and Douglas Urbanski from SAG’s best ensemble cast category for THE SOCIAL NETWORK? They are credited in the opening credits and their contributions are part of the impeccable ensemble. This was reflected in virtually every review. There has got to be some back story to this.

  11. Why is Mike O’Malley who plays Kurt’s father in Glee always overlooked? I hope he gets nominated for a Supporting Actor Emmy. He really deserves it.

  12. Boardwalk Empire is absolutely phenomenal and it deserves the nominations that it is getting. It’s paced and writing style reminds me of Mad Men.

  13. Congrats to Jennifer Lawrence and Hailee Steinfeld. ‘Winter’s Bone’ was by far my favorite film of the year (although I have not seen King’s Speech or Blue Valentine yet) and Jennifer gives a performance that is far beyond her years. It is a bit strange the Steinfeld was nominated for Supporting actor, instead of Lead actor, considering she has about 80% of the dialogue and is in nearly every scene. Perhaps she has a better chance of winning the supporting category though.

  14. Yowza – glaring omissions include Tilda Swinton and the many brilliant non-white actors, though admittedly it’s relatively slim pickings amongst the vast majority of all-white movies and tv shows.

  15. WHY has “The Town” been snubbed at Golden Globes and now by SAG Awards?!

    It was a GREAT film!

    And WHY is “Cougar Town” being snubbed in comedy series category??
