Completed the voting from its two randomly selected panels which each comprises of 2,100 members, Screen Actors Guild finally listed out nominations for the 14th edition of its SAG Awards on December 20, 2007 at the Pacific Design Center's Silver Screen Theater in West Hollywood.
Announced by actors Jeanne Tripplehorn and Terrence Howard, the substantial labor union made surprising decision by hailing road movie "Into the Wild" as the top contender with four nods in total. Trailing behind are "Michael Clayton" and "No Country for Old Men" which each score three mentions, including that in best supporting actor category.
In prime-time television slot, "The Sopranos", "30 Rock", and "Ugly Betty" each land three nominations to lead the pack with the last two competing tightly in best ensemble cast and actress for comedy series. Other multiple nominees among others are "Boston Legal", "Entourage", and "The Closer", all nabbing two nods each.
Apart from the aforementioned categories, the Guild also introduced for the first time the new SAG honors for film and television stunt ensembles. The former lines up titles like "300", "The Bourne Ultimatum", and "I Am Legend" while the latter includes those of "24", "Heroes", "Lost", "Rome", and "The Unit."
