SAG Nominations Place Silver Linings Playbook, Lincoln In Awards Season Tie

Silver Linings Playbook leads nominations this awards season

Yesterday, we began our unofficial tally of all the nominations received by this year’s critically acclaimed movies, and thanks to the work of Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and writer/director David O. Russell, Silver Linings Playbook was the clear frontrunner. Now that the Screen Actors Guild Awards have been announced today, it’s still on top — but Lincoln’s Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field and Tommy Lee Jones and company have made it a tie at 33 nods apiece. Les Miserables firmly in third place after Hugh Jackman‘s nod for lead male actor, Anne Hathaway’s for supporting female actor, the whole ensemble’s cast nomination and a nod in the stunt cast category.

On the TV side of the SAGs, the nominations look a whole lot like every other TV awards show, with the likes of Downton Abbey, Modern Family, Nurse Jackie, Breaking Bad and Boardwalk Empire dominating the list. Can’t say we blame them, though!

Here’s where all the movies stand so far (this includes minor kudos, like the Satellite Awards, the L.A. Film Critics Awards and the like):

Silver Linings Playbook: 33
Lincoln: 33
Les Miserables: 27
The Master: 22
Zero Dark Thirty: 20
Argo: 20
Beasts of the Southern Wild: 17
Moonrise Kingdom: 16
Life of Pi: 14
The Sessions: 12
Django Unchained: 6
