Critically-lauded 'Up in the Air' is within the 2010 list, taking in the same amount of nomination that 'Inglourious Basterds', 'Precious', '30 Rock', 'The Office' and 'Dexter' do.
Next year's list of Screen Actors Guild Awards nominations puts three films and three television shows under three categories. In terms of number, critics' choice "Up in the Air" is battling it out with "Inglourious Basterds" and "Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire" while "30 Rock" gets heavy competition from "Dexter" and "The Closer".
The nominees that were read out on Thursday, December 17, also revealed that several actors receive multiple nominations. In motion picture category, Penelope Cruz earns two for starring in "Nine". In television, Tina Fey scores also two for being the lead of "30 Rock". Her co-star Alec Baldwin is also having two chances to walk away with an award.
Nomination by studio for theatrical motion pictures is led by Paramount Pictures which distributes "Up in the Air", "The Lovely Bones" and "Star Trek". Meanwhile, nomination by television network is dominated by NBC which is the home for "30 Rock" and "The Office".
Nomination by SAG is especially significant to estimate which movies would probably get a slot at the 2010 Oscars. A gala to reveal the winners and hand out the prizes will be held on January 23 in Los Angeles. TNT and CBS will broadcast it live starting 8 P.M. ET/PT. Betty White will receive a lifetime achievement award for her contribution in the acting world.
