The Screen Actors Guild Noms Go Mental for "Silver Linings Playbook," Snub "Django Unchained"

Awards season is well under way, and with all the precursors to the Oscars you could probably detect who will actually the home the big prize.So it should come as no surprise who was honored this morning for next year's Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards.

The list of film nominees is below, which is similar to yesterday's Critics' Choice Awards (as it will likely be for tomorrow's Golden Globe Award nominations) except for surprisingly more appreciation for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and a random nod for The Paperboy star Nicole Kidman. Also, I love Helen Mirren just as much as any breathing human being, but Hitchcock was not a very commendable performance from her (granted, neither was the source material).

The list looks generic to me, but no Django Unchained OR Beasts of the Southern Wild?? Playing it safe, I see...

Update: SAG has deemed Beasts of the Southern Wild ineligible for an award because they can only honor performances/films with talent that are part of the guild, naturally. The cast and crew are largely made up of first-timers who were handpicked from their "real" jobs. Although this fact is unfortunate for this particular award, I have a feeling this movie will make up for its loss later in the season. Read more on this on the New York Times website.

Beasts of the Southern Wild wasn't eligible because they didn't use real actors. I'm hoping that doesn't hurt it's chances and it will be like True Grit a few years ago. The Globes shut them out and everyone else went nuts over them.

Django Unchained surprised me though. I don't think enough people have seen it. I figured DiCaprio would be in there for sure.

i heard about that, but i have a problem with deeming something ineligible simply because they don't use "real actors." i can say that for a few other films, like Magic Mike for instance. But that's not stopping Channing Tatum from earning nominations for his "acting." however, if they want to say Beasts wasn't eligible because the actors weren't a part of the guild, that's another story..
