‘Into the Wild’ tops SAG nominations

'Yuma,' 'Gangster,' 'No Country' also honored

With four bids, including ensemble cast, “Into the Wild” topped the Screen Actors Guild Award nominations in voting that only heightened the sense of uncertainty about the awards season.

Few sure bets are emerging this year, and SAG presented multiple noms to only four films — including “American Gangster,” “Michael Clayton” and “No Country for Old Men” — and single mentions to 13 pics.

Nominees for the ensemble-cast prize also include dramas “3:10 to Yuma,” “American Gangster” and “No Country for Old Men,” along with musical comedy “Hairspray.”

SAG also inaugurated stunt awards with noms for the work in “300,” “The Bourne Ultimatum,” “I Am Legend,” “The Kingdom” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.”

The accelerated awards season may have taken its toll on late-year openers. Of the big films opening in December, only a handful scored SAG noms. Left out were such pics as “Atonement” and “Sweeney Todd” (both earned big noms in last week’s Golden Globes), “Charlie Wilson’s War,” “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly,” “The Great Debaters” and “The Savages.”

TV noms always get less attention than film due to the timing amid kudos season, but “Ugly Betty,” “The Sopranos” and “30 Rock” each received three SAG nominations.

Edie Falco and James Gandolfini of “The Sopranos” received drama acting noms, and the skein drew a mention for drama ensemble along with “Boston Legal,” “The Closer,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Mad Men.” (“Grey’s Anatomy” won this year’s SAG trophy.)

The SAG Awards, set for Jan. 27 at the Shrine in Los Angeles, won’t be affected by the Writers Guild of America strike. This month, the WGA granted SAG a waiver for the show, to be telecast on TBS and TNT, but refused to grant waiver requests to the Golden Globes, which air Jan. 13, and Feb. 24’s Oscars.

Asked about the possibility of nominees crossing picket lines, SAG president Alan Rosenberg said it would be a personal decision but added that he would not do so if he were nominated during a strike.

Aside from its ensemble nom, “Wild” nabbed bids for Emile Hirsch (leading actor), Hal Holbrook and Catherine Keener (both supporting).

In addition to its ensemble nom, “No Country” took supporting mentions for Javier Bardem and Tommy Lee Jones. “Michael Clayton” also received three noms, for George Clooney in the actor category and Tilda Swinton and Tom Wilkinson in the supporting races.

“American Gangster” scored for ensemble and Ruby Dee for supporting actress.

Besides Clooney and Hirsch, SAG noms in the actor category went to Daniel Day-Lewis for “There Will Be Blood,” Ryan Gosling for “Lars and the Real Girl” and Viggo Mortensen for “Easten Promises.”

Cate Blanchett scored two nominations — as the British queen in “Elizabeth: The Golden Age” in the actress category and as Bob Dylan in “I’m Not There” in the supporting race.

Rounding out the bids in the SAG actress category were Julie Christie for “Away From Her,” Marion Cotillard for “La Vie en rose,” Angelina Jolie for “A Mighty Heart” and Ellen Page in “Juno.”

America Ferrera and Vanessa Williams received comedy acting noms for “Ugly Betty,” and the series was nommed for comedy ensemble along with “30 Rock,” “Desperate Housewives,” “Entourage” and “The Office.”

The nominations were announced early Thursday morning by Jean Tripplehorn and Terrence Howard at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles.

Nominees are picked by a randomly selected panel of 2,100 SAG members. The guild’s entire membership of 120,000 is eligible to vote for the final awards. About 60% of SAG members live in the Hollywood area, and another 25% are based in New York City.

The noms are closely watched as a signal of sentiment within the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, since actors comprise about 21% of the Acad’s membership. But the SAG ensemble award’s matched the best picture Oscar only five times in the past 12 years, with SAG diverging this year by tapping “Little Miss Sunshine” while the Academy opted for “The Departed.”

SAG voting is a far stronger indicator in the four individual categories. The guild’s 20 nominations for 2006 films matched all but one in the four Oscar races; the winners of the SAG actor trophies have matched the lead actor Oscar in nine of the past 13 years and the actress Oscar in 10 of the 13 years — including Helen Mirren and Forest Whitaker this year.
