The Screen Actors Guild Awards have an impressive track record of foreseeing the Oscars. Of last year's 20 SAG acting nominees, 17 went on to contend at the Academy Awards. Three of the four SAG film acting winners repeated (the exception being Viola Davis from "The Help"). And SAG ensemble champ "The Help" was also one of the nominees for Best Picture at the Oscars.
This year, "Lincoln," "Silver Linings Playbook," and "Les Miserables" are the top nominees receiving four nominations apiece, including Best Film Ensemble.
Nominations were decided by two randomly selected panels of 2,100 SAG members, and the winners will be determined by the guild's full membership, totalling approximately 100,000, and announced in a live kudocast airing on TNT/TBS on Sunday, Jan. 27 from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
