2010 Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominees Announced
by Alex Billington
December 17, 2009
The nominees for the 16th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards have just been announced today. Yet another awards show in the very top tier (which also includes the Golden Globes and Academy Awards) is the Screen Actors Guilds Awards, where the actors themselves choose the best performances from amongst their peers. These nominees are usually very similar to those at the Oscars, so this may be a good indication. Their picks this year are great, as usual, but it seems like a weird year. I would've loved to see someone from Avatar on here or Zoe Saldana at all (she's so damn talented), but oh well. Check out the full list below.
The SAG Awards will air live from Los Angeles on TNT and TBS on Sunday, January 23rd, 2010.
Jeff Bridges - Crazy Heart
George Clooney - Up in the Air
Colin Firth - A Single Man
Morgan Freeman - Invictus
Jeremy Renner - The Hurt Locker
Sandra Bullock - The Blind Side
Helen Mirren - The Last Station
Carey Mulligan - An Education
Gabourey Sidibe - Precious
Meryl Streep - Julie & Julia
Matt Damon - Invictus
Woody Harrelson - The Messenger
Christopher Plummer - The Last Station
Stanley Tucci - The Lovely Bones
Christoph Waltz - Inglourious Basterds
Penelope Cruz - Nine
Vera Farmiga - Up in the Air
Anna Kendrick - Up in the Air
Diane Kruger - Inglourious Basterds
Mo'nique - Precious
The Hurt Locker
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD:
This year I'm rooting for anyone from Up in the Air or Inglourious Basterds. And Carey Mulligan better win for Best Lead Actress and Christoph Waltz better win for Best Supporting Actor as well. Other than that, I'll be happy with whoever ends up winning. Some great performances this year, even beyond those nominated.

With the exception of the noms to Basterds and Hurt Locker, most of those movies are mediocre. They thought Clooney was worthy of a nom but not Sam Rockwell? Are they nuts?

Honestly, the only worthy nom I see is Christopher Waltz, but whatever.

Trying not to sound like a fanboy or anything but I think Christian Bale should've got nominated for his role in Public Enemies. This wasnt the year for great performances, some good ones in my opinion but not many that would actually get nominated. I liked to see Liam Neeson get a Best Actor nom for Taken. The Female category is wide open, I'd say Rachel Weisz for The Brothers Bloom or Amy Adams for Sunshine Cleaning. S. Actor, Bale like I said, Nom for Ben Affleck for State of Play, but Waltz should/will win for Ing. Bastards. S. Actress is wide open also, I would say Carla Gugino for Watchmen, I havent seen The Lovely Bones yet, but by the novel maybe Susan Sarandon.

Mo'nique was amazing in Precious. Its good to see a comedian do such a spectacular job in a gritty darma.
