Viola Davis And Octavia Spencer Grab Screen Actors Guild Nominations!
As award season heats up, Oscar-front runners Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer recently landed Screen Actors Guild awards for their work in the blockbuster The Help. Get the deets inside....
Since making its debut in 1995, the SAG Awards have become one of the most prized accolades in the industry, and two fab YBF chicks are up for top nods.
Judy Greer from "The Descendants" and Regina King from "Southland" announced the nominees for the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards yesterday at the SilverScreen Theater at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood. And it was revealed that new adoptive mom-to-be, Viola Davis, was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for The Help. Her co-star Octavia Spencer was nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role. The movie received 4 nods total.
Other notable nominations were the casts of Bridesmaids and The Help for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture and Laurence Fishburne as Thurgood Marshall for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries.
Also Tracy Morgan and Amber Riley were both nominated for their work in "30 Rock" and "Glee" in the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. "Modern Family" was also nominated in this category (Kevin Hart played a small role this season). And the cast of "The Good Wife" were nominated for their ensemble work in the drama category.
I still think "Homeland" on Showtime was snubbed. FANTASTIC show.
Find out who will win on the live show airing on TNT and TBS on January 29, 2012, at 8 PM (ET) / 5 PM (PT) from the Shrine Exposition Center in L.A. Congrats to the nominees!
