SAG Award Nominees 2014



I'm not that much of an awards geek, but this is year is kind of odd. Some of 2014's most ballyhooed pictures - Selma, Inherent Vice, Mr. Turner, Maps of the Stars, etc. - haven't released yet, but folks are merrily putting out best of year lists and award noms. SAG announced their nominations yesterday. The SAG awards are always a good indication of who will win the Oscar, except for those years when they aren't. Birdman and Boyhood did very well. The biggest surprises to me were Naomi "Moose and Squirrel" Watts for her over the top Russian accent in St. Vincent - and Bill Murray's snub for the same movie - and the complete shut out for HBO's hilarious Getting On. Jon Hamm and Mad Men were ignored for the second year in a row, despite this abbreviated season being one of the show's best. Actors can be a jealous lot; I guess folks figure he's had enough sucess. Check out the complete list below:
