SAG Awards Nominations For 2008

December 18th, 2008 // 1 Comment

Decked out in shimmery brown and bronze, Angela Bassett joined actor Eric McCormack and SAG President Alan Rosenberg to announce nominations for the Screen Actors Guild Awards.

God, once awards season starts, there’s no stopping it until every single bronze, gold, glittery statuette has been handed out. And since the SAG Awards cover both television and film, the list of nominations is LONG. You can check out the full list after the jump.

Except for Melissa Leo, who is nominated for her performance in Frozen River, the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role nominations are filled with powerhouse stars Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet and Anne Hathaway.

Their male counterparts include Sean Penn, Brad Pitt, Frank Langella, Mickey Rourke and Richard Jenkins.

In response to this new list of potential award recipients, I say, “Let’s GETTITON!”

    Hey! Isn’t it a replica of a replica of a replica? Same names, same shows, same acceptance speeches. Sometimes these ass-kissing ceremonies make me feel I’m still living thru the sixties, even though we have an Afro-American President. Globes, SAG, Oscars et al., time to move!
