Screen Actors Guild

Nominations for the 2008 Screen Actors Guild Awards are out. Always important ones to watch, as they're voted for entirely by actors, who make up the largest voting block in the Academy Awards. See full list of nominations here

Biggest surprises:

The strong showing of Into the Wild, which was shut out by the Golden Globes. Sean Penn's movie picked up 4 nods for Emile Hirsch, Catherine Keener and the brilliant Hol Holbrook, who I think will emerge as the sentimental favourite to win Supporting Actor, just shading heavy fave Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men).

Atonement was completely ignored - this does not auger well.

Ryan Gosling makes the cut for the bizarre Lars and the Real Girl. The actors clearly love him. He could make the Oscar race.

Ellen Page nominated as Best Actress for Juno - the girl is going to go far. Perhaps even an underdog winner? Strange that the cast failed to pick up an Ensemble nod though.

No love for The Savages, and its stars Laura Linney and, shockingly, Philip Seymour Hoffman, who has 3 award worthy performances this year.

Charlie Wilson's War looks finished already.
